- Technical Problems
Since computers are probably the second most overused piece of equipment in a workplace, then it’s no surprise that workers experience malfunctions every once in a while. But when this happens, you don’t and can’t just stop working just because your computer won’t turn on or the internet is down, especially when you’re rushing a project. Look for another way to work. Call your tech support or see if there’s another computer that you can use or go to the nearest coffee shop if it has internet. And this time, make sure that all the equipment and computers are properly serviced to avoid this kind of hassle from happening again.
2. Disappearing Acts
There are employees who arrive late all the time, or are absent frequently. Once in a while is fine, there are situations that can’t be helped but you should know when to draw the line. Don’t just let it slide, catch it the first time it happens and take action. If it’s just the first time, let the person know that you noticed so the don’t repeat the act. If it happens again and again then it calls for a serious discussion and probably a disciplinary action depending on the situation.
3. Safety/Health Hazards
Physical hazards, ergonomic hazards, chemical hazards, and biological hazards are the main types of work place hazard that could occur in a work place. The reason why inspections are strictly conducted is to avoid these entirely. However, when they do happen and you become aware of any of these make sure to report it right away, so your superior can take action to stop the hazard from getting worse and possibly harming workers.
4. Construction Defects
Though office establishments are constructed using the best materials and executed by the best workers, defects are bound to happen in the future. Actually, problems like leaking pipes, running toilets, dripping taps, or clogged drains are so common. If your office happens to have any of these plumbing issues, there are things that you can do. Ignore it and forever get irritated with it, watch a YouTube tutorial to fix it yourself and probably fail and cause a bigger problem, or report it so the professionals can handle it. Plumbers these days buy acrylic tube with Simply Plastics in plumbing because they’re easy to customise and last longer, they have high resistance to pressure, they lack metallic substances which could can rust, erode, or cause a build up in the system, plus they look more tidier compared to their metal cousins with less operational and maintenance costs. So instead of stressing over the plumbing, stop dragging out the problem out and just call the plumber in to solve it.
