Worker safety is one of the top concerns when decommissioning data center assets. DMD has developed a comprehensive system to ensure safe hardware removal from virtually any type of data center environment. This is complimented by our OHSAS 18001 Occupational Health and Safety certification, which requires documented procedures for worker safety.
For major decommissioning projects we construct a formal job safety analysis which each worker must understand and sign off on. The document outlines potential hazards and actions that must be taken to mitigate those hazards.
Examples of hazards include:
Actions we take to mitigate these risks include:
