PREPARING FOR THE WORST

GUIDE FOR FACILITY MANAGERS as provided by Sunbelt Rentals

As job titles go, ‘facility manager’ is a bit misleading.

That’s because a facility manager doesn’t just manage a given school, arena, or conference center. They are also in charge of ensuring the safety and comfort of everyone inside that facility.

If disaster strikes, there’s a lot more at stake than soggy floors or overheated hallways – a good facility manager must be prepared for the worst.

HVAC failure

Every HVAC system seems to break down on the hottest or coldest days of the year.

To avoid as much discomfort and damage as possible, stay on top of regular HVAC maintenance and inspection. If your units are old, start planning for an upgrade. If they’re new, make sure they are serviced regularly to ensure a long lifespan.

Should your HVAC systems fail entirely, you need to understand what you’ll need temporarily until a replacement can be installed. In those cases, we offer a variety of portable air conditioners and heaters, as well as dehumidifiers to guard against the onset of mold.

Security threats

There’s no getting around it: Security is now one of the biggest issues facility managers face.

To prepare for the worst, create an emergency response plan and ensure all building personnel are well-versed in the specifics. Cybersecurity and technology are increasingly being delegated to facility managers, so educate yourself on the available tools and best practices.

One area that’s easy to miss in disaster preparedness is security cameras. They are designed to blend in, but they can’t be forgotten. Check your security cameras regularly to make sure they are functioning properly. If one or more need to be replaced, bring in our mobile surveillance cameras to ensure you are covered until the new equipment arrives.

You can’t be too careful. The safety of your facility and its occupants depends on it.
