QUESTION OF THE WEEK: Freedom Of Worship

QUESTION OF THE WEEK: Freedom Of Worship

Q. I have been asked to look into the modification and adaptation of some areas in our building and facilities to accommodate the daily prayer requirements of our Muslim employees. They have requested foot washing stations and a prayer room. We are a privately held manufacturer of custom sealing systems and mechanical seals. We employ standard machine shop practices and manufacturing processes. We operate a number of facilities in the states and some overseas. We have 350 employees worldwide. So my question is this. Have you had to deal with such requests? If so, what have you done? Is there a company policy covering this, and/or other religious activity on company property? Did you get complaints from other religious groups? Leon Joyce Facilities Manager Stein Seal Co. Kulpsville, PA This question was originally published in the October 2008 issue of Today’s Facility Manager. Read Elledge’s response here.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK: High-Rise Building Evacuations

In this new weekly offering, FacilityBlog will feature one question posted by a facility management professional to TFM‘s Tricks of the Trade Columnist Jim Elledge. While a link to Elledge’s response will be included, the goal of this exercise is to initiate even more discussion and encourage additional feedback within the facility management community. Q. Can you explain why, when a fire alarm goes off in a high-rise building, that the floor with the trouble is the only one (along with those above and below) with an activated alarm? Our school is responsible for five floors of an eight story building, and people are little concerned about being left out when the alarms go off on other floors and not theirs. I have found the code, but there is no explanation.
