This week’s question comes from the Facilities Management Group on LinkedIn.
When it comes to space heaters, I feel they should not be allowed for reasons of safety and risk management. Heaters become additionally troublesome when a person who has a zone thermostat in his or her office brings in supplemental heating. This makes it difficult for facilities management to inform some people they can’t have heaters when another person next door (who does not have a thermostat in the office) is allowed to have a heater.
Does anyone have a policy in place to manage these types of auxiliary appliances in the work place? Allowed? Disallowed? Any feedback and discussion would be appreciated.
