Implemented as part of Sue’s Safety Challenge during the Rochester Bridge Refurbishment Project 2019-2020
What: In and out board
Why? Working in different rooms and on different floors, it can be easy for staff to lose track of who is or isn’t in the building. This isn’t an issue if it’s an ordinary working day and everyone is at their desks, but it could be a problem at the end of the day or if there’s an emergency, when there’s a danger of someone being left behind.
Implemented? Yes. Having a simple board near the door for people to mark themselves as in or out makes it easier to keep track of who is in the building, meaning no one is unexpectedly left on their own. This also means that in case of a fire or other emergency it is easier for us to know when the building has been safely evacuated.
