Here’s our quick & dirty checklist to help you prepare your office in the event of a hurricane.
o Move goods, equipment or furniture away from windows and skylights.
o Clear all desk and table tops of small loose objects.
o Take down all loosely secured pictures, plaques, etc.
o Box or place in desk drawers/storage cabinets any loose papers, books, hanging plants, etc.
o Relocate files, boxes, computers, office machines and other equipment to the innermost portion of the building or a remove to a safer location. (Don’t forget to label so you know what systems belong to which employee.)
o Elevate items by placing items on desk or table tops.
o Disconnect all electrical appliances and equipment, except for refrigeration.
o Cover merchandise, office machines, specialized equipment, file cabinets, copy machines, stationary computer terminals, etc., with tarps or plastic sheeting and secure with sturdy tape.
o Close all windows and draw blinds or drapes.
o Lock all doors when the last person leaves.
Remember above all to be safe.
