Department Inspection Report :)

Date: 10/04/2018
Author: Stacie

According to Dr. Herrington, "ESS is a pass" on inspections (with a request to Facilities that our custodial staff vacuum and dust more frequently for our department). He commented that all of our spaces looked "significantly better than last year". Nicely done, everyone! A huge THANK YOU to Casey Shea & Dan Blake for making the Design Lab look spotless, and to Amanda Snook for ensuring our common spaces and storage room were kept tidy and organized and for meeting with everyone to prep for this inspection and the upcoming inventory process!

  • Sebastopol has been shifted from Rachael to Sarah F
  • Healdsburg has been shifted from Sarah F to Sarah L

These changes are reflected on the Continuous Improvement Director Assignments document, which can be found in the Org Charts & Big Picture Guiding Documents box on the left.

Updates / Reminder: Inspections

Date: 09/26/2018
Author: Stacie

Here are a few updates and new information regarding Dr. Herrington's annual "department inspections" in ESS. 

  • The date has CHANGED to Thursday, October 4th. 
  • The spaces to be inspected include work stations, shared/hoteling stations, conference rooms, ESS hallway storage, and the Design Lab. 
  • Since the ESS hallway storage will also inspected, we kindly ask that you NOT use the storage room as a staging area for things you're discarding from your work station. In addition, please ensure that your hallway storage shelves are cleaned up and organized and that no items are housed on top of the shelving units or on the floor. If you have items you need to permanently add to the storage room, please connect with Amanda to arrange this. 

Overall, Dr. Herrington will be looking for facilities/maintenance items that need attention, as well as checking for general tidiness and uncluttered/organized working areas. Prior to October 4th, please ensure your personal working area, any shared common areas, and your storage areas are organized, cleaned, decluttered, and ready for inspection. 

An additional reminder will be sent out that week. Any questions.... see Stacie or Amanda.
