Safety Tips for Lifting IT Hardware in a Data Center

A vital part of an efficient data center is a safe data center. To ensure a safe working environment, it is important never to overlook the potential risks the data center and its personnel may be exposed to. These include fire, natural disasters, faulty equipment and outages, electrocution, physical injuries, and the list goes on. These risks can be mitigated and avoided with proper inspections, procedures and/or training.

Data Center Safety Best Practices

Efficiency and effectiveness are top priorities in data centers. Attention is given to performance and hardware, including servers, storage, backups, recovery, power, and cooling. The most critical pieces which create a successful data center also create a more dangerous work environment.

Maintaining a safe data operation for all personnel is commonly under prioritized (or overlooked). Work-related injuries can be very costly, so it is vital to spend adequate time, money and planning to ensure a comfortable and safe work environment.
