Elevator Out of Order Procedure
To keep all areas of the Miller Center accessible during hours of operation.
When an LR&TS employee becomes aware that an elevator is malfunctioning, the following procedures will be used:
The LR&TS employee will notify personnel at the Circulation desk of the malfunction.
Circulation desk personnel will report the malfunction to Maintenance (8-3166). They will identify which elevator is out of order, give a description of the problem (if known), and report if people are trapped inside the elevator car.
LR&TS employees will offer assistance to patrons needing access to affected areas due to the elevator outage.
- NE Elevator - LR&TS employees might need to escort the patron through the connecting tunnel from one wing to another.
- Main Elevator - LR&TS employees should accompany the patron on the freight elevator and escort them through the staff-only work areas.
- Freight Elevator - LR&TS employees should use main elevator.
Circulation desk employees will post "Out of Order" signs on each floor that is affected by the malfunctioning elevator.
