38 Some Reminders to Keep Our System Well Organized ALWAYS , remember to put more than one descriptive word in the description line:NOT JUST window BUT window broken in cr12…orNOT JUST bathroom BUT boys bathroom urinal in main hall.If you have a Vandalism or Property Damage Work Request please use a capital V or PD in the front on the description line of the request in order that it may be easily distinguished. Also, please remember to fill out and submit the MABE Property loss forms for the incident. (I.E.; V-window broken in main office due to student disruption.)IF submitting a request for lighting issue; ALWAYS check the bulbs prior to submitting that your ballast does not work or needs to be replaced. Once you know it is not the bulb; then submit a request for an electrician.IF submitting a request for a vehicle repair; ALWAYS ENTER THE TAG NUMBER (LG #) OF THE VEHICLE IN THE DESCRIPTION LINE as well as the area that it is located. Enter the issue with the vehicle in the comments area.
39 Some Reminders to Keep Our System Well Organized Every issue large or small is required to have a work order number in order to document the problem, time allotted and cost/parts involved. An nor a phone call is a substitute for this process. MPULSE is the only recognized means of creating a work order and has actually proven repeatedly to be more efficient in scheduling and prompt response time.In the event of an emergency… a situation which requires immediate action due to inherent risk of damage/danger to staff/students or community…a phone call SHOULD be made ; however, it still needs to be followed up with a work request ASAP.If a maintenance staff person is in your building and you request them to complete a different task than the one that they have been sent there for; it is required that you submit an online request while they are there; including the names of whomever is completing this work. Print the request and have it signed off when the work is complete.
40 Some Reminders to Keep Our System Well Organized Do not submit duplicate or repeat requests, simply because the work has not been completed yet. Check your List section to see if you have already submitted a request. If you have questions about an existing request, just or call the Work Order Specialist and we will try to give you the information requested.Please do not leave a message on an answering machine in an emergency situation. Please continue to attempt contact with our department.
