Security First, Safety with a Smile. Introducing Safety Ambassador James Butcher.

By Roxanne Rabich, Service Coordinator at Umbrella Managed Systems talking about Umbrella’s unofficial security ambassador… James Butcher.

Umbrella Managed Systems: James in Safety GogglesOne of our Service Delivery Engineers, James Butcher, has declared himself Umbrella’s Security Ambassador. When asked how this happened, James said, “One day I found safety goggles in the basement, so I took them to my desk. Then I came across a grounding strap. Then someone brought me a hard hat. After that, we acquired the safety vest and cones. I’m now fully equipped!”

Here’s how these safety items can be used in a technical office setting.

  • A grounding strap prevents static from your body from damaging electronic devices while undergoing repair.
  • The safety goggles prevent eye injury while participating in Nerf gun wars. Or being caught off guard as nerf darts fly by, bringing us to the next point…
  • The hard hat offers protection from RFOs (Random Flying Objects) such as paper airplanes, stress balls, stuffed animals and well, nerf darts.
  • Safety cones are set up around a desk to warn others that you’re working on computer hardware or performing hard drive back ups – keep your distance unless you’re wearing a grounding strap. Cones can also be used to prevent scooters from entering a particular area or to ward off others approaching in rolling chairs.

Umbrella Managed Systems: James in Safety GearUmbrella’s safety regulations include:

  • No Scooters allowed in the rest room
  • All cables for electronic equipment must be properly managed to prevent tripping or a reprimand from Heath who prides himself as THE cable management enforcer.
  • Do not run with scissors
  • Avoid carrying a hot cup of coffee or boiling bowl of Ramen noodles down the stairs
