Several types of professionals can perform inspections of HVAC-systems, like for example the energy and climate advisors in Sweden: the advantage they have is their connections with the end users, their independent role and experience in giving advice to end users, in a country having formally selected option B in article 8 of EPBD 2002/91/EC (now still allowed by point 4 of art. 14 and 15 of EPBD Recast). As the end users may not be interested in advice on Energy Efficiency and Renewables, it is vital that the advisors are well trained in giving advice and are service minded. As the end users feel that the maintenancestaff who are responsible for periodical system control may be biased in their recommendations, the energy and climate advisors are better placed to provide a second step opinion and even participate in the inspection if necessary.
Table 1 shows the list of problem faces by maintenancestaff contents and the mean index for each element according to the survey has been done in maintenance department at UTHM. The table shows that client do not understand about the maintenance work process was score the highest mean index 3.42. The second score was for inadequate budget 3.39. The third score was for understaffed 3.34. Followed by uncomfortable workplace 3.24, lack of materials, equipment and tools 3.11, lack of training 3.05, unsatisfied client feedback 3.03, maintenancestaff is always scolded by the client also 3.03. The least score was lack of commitment 2.39 and then followed by unwillingness to perform duties 2.58. To get clear view about this we can look to Figure 1 below.
Nowadays, electrical accidents to the line man are increasing, while repairing the electrical lines due to the lack of communication between the electrical substation and maintenancestaff. This project gives a solution to this problem to ensure line man safety. In this proposed system, the control (ON/OFF) of the electrical lines lies with line man. This project is arranged in such a way that maintenancestaff or line man has to enter the password to ON/OFF the electrical line.Now, if there is any fault in electrical line, then the line man will switch off the power supply to the line by entering password and comfortably repair the electrical line, and after coming to the substation line man switch on the supply to the particular line by entering the password. Separate passwords are assigned for each electrical lines.
As for the factors responsible for poor maintenance management of bank buildings in Lagos State, a number of hypothesized factors were identified with the degree of the significance of each of these factors established based on the responses obtained from the field survey as presented in the previous chapter of this research work. However, the two groups of respondents, the maintenancestaff and the users have relative agreement on the degree of significance for all of the hypothesized factors except for the significance of lack of discernable maintenance culture in the country, which was ranked by the users as the most significant factor responsible for poor maintenance management of bank buildings whereas the maintenancestaff ranked it as the least significant factor. Consequently, the research showed that the association between the perception of maintenancestaff and users of bank buildings on the factors responsible for poor maintenance management is very strong. The information gathered in the course of this research work revealed that 97% of the maintenance departments of the bank buildings in Lagos State adopts wide managerial span of control as the organizational structure. This revelation depicts that the maintenance management of bank buildings in Lagos State has not given a chance to the use of the narrow span of control (ns alterative type of organizational structure) which may result in better coordination, supervision and monitoring of maintenance organization in banks and consequently a better overall performance of the department.
A training program has been written for Facilities Superintendents and cleaning and maintenancestaff, who are responsible for implementing green cleaning procedures on a daily basis. The training program is to ensure staff understands the environmental and health issues associated with cleaning products and equipment, as well as their specific responsibilities for application and adherence of the policy. The curriculum covers the hazards, use, maintenance, disposal and recycling of cleaning chemicals, and dispensing equipment and packaging. This program also includes strategies for promoting and improving hand hygiene, including both hand washing and the use of alcohol-based waterless hand sanitizers. Hand washing instructions (See Exhibit 7) will be posted in custodial closets that have sinks. The training is conducted annually. All custodians and managers will be trained. The GCPM is responsible for updating the training program. Area Managers are responsible for training program delivery and compliance (See Green Cleaning Training: Exhibit 5).
generated behind the scenes (LOTS of animal waste), but Como Park Zoo and Conservatory is very visible and highly regarded in public perception, and establishing a recycling program lays the foundation for further waste reduction such as composting. The infrastructure existed for trash collection, where maintenancestaff serviced containers and hauled bags of trash to a holding area with a golf cart. This trash collection system was easily adapted for recycling collection, because bags of recycling could be pulled by hand and easily kept separate from trash. With the launch of this program in June 2008, visitors gained access to recycling for their bottles, cans, milk cartons, and juice boxes. This pilot project focused on testing the educational and logistical aspects of the recycling program as Eureka Recycling and Como Park Zoo and Conservatory monitored the materials collected through the recycling program, gathered feedback from park visitors and maintenancestaff, made adjustments, and documented results.

Moreover, travel experience must be improved due to insignificant results in this study. As we know that public transportation especially BRT system would be the representative of the capital city of Indonesia. The innovation of vehicle like comfortable and modern double decker bus would be one of the implications for the stakeholders of BRT System Company in Jakarta Indonesia. The double decker bus would answer the insignificant effect of waiting time. Also, this kind of bus is eligible to large number of passengers at the rush hours to prevent long waiting passengers on the off-board. Thus, the modern facilities must be improved like the online platform to inform bus’ schedule and GPS navigation for buses due to the insignificant effect of information provision and waiting time. The off-board facilities as well, to be maintained properly by maintenance and modern design, likewise the society especially middle up income would have some positive perception toward off-board facilities. When middle up income societies switch to BRT system, then it is believed to reduce traffic in the capital city.
Interviews followed a semi-structured format and were conducted by trained research workers supervised by GH, SJ and MP, using a topic guide that explored posi- tive and negative aspects of work, perceptions of staff morale on the study ward, the factors affecting staff morale, and ideas for how morale might be maintained or enhanced. The main questions were very broad and open-ended, enquiring how staff felt about their jobs, what main factors they felt influenced their feelings about work, and how their working environment might be improved. A list of prompts was used to explore views about areas not spontaneously touched on - these were identified from two sources: (a) areas identified from the literature as potentially linked to morale; and (b) expert views from the large multidisciplinary steering group for the National Inpatient Staff Morale Study . They were modified following pilot application on two wards. Focus groups followed a similar format, with dis- cussion focused on factors affecting team, rather than individual, morale. The main questions for discussion among group participants were their views about which are the main positive and negative influences on team morale. All staff provided written informed consent prior to participating.
The County should develop a replacement schedule for aging buildings in conjunction with a detailed capital improvement plan. Revenues from the levy should be set aside in increments sufficient to fund a building’s replacement after the fifty year expected life span of the building has expired. Finally, the County should implement a planned preventive maintenance program. An effective preventive maintenance program can help improve worker productivity by proactively maintaining equipment rather than responding to breakdowns and emergencies. The County has several options regarding the development of preventive maintenance software. The County could use the County Management Information Systems Department in conjunction with the CAFM specialist and management systems specialist to develop a preventive maintenance system in-house. The County could purchase a stand- alone preventive maintenance software application or it can purchase an add-on Facilities Maintenance Module to the CAD program already in existence. A preventive maintenance software program would flag preventive maintenance items and notify the appropriate personnel when items are scheduled for preventive maintenance.
3 There are groups of staff (such as midwives) who tend to move quickly to operate in roles that demand a level of autonomous decision-making in the overall delivery of care that exceeds that normally associated with jobs allocated to pay band 5. Typically, these roles operate without the influence of other professional groups. Where supervision operates, it is generally management supervision and does not normally impinge upon clinical practice. In such circumstances job size should be reviewed no earlier than one year and no later than two years from the date of qualification, using the NHS Job Evaluation Scheme. If the evaluation demonstrates that the post holder’s job weight is of sufficient size to move to the next pay band (pay band 6) this should be effected without the need for application for a post at a higher level. It is not expected that the review will be widespread practice, as the majority of staff will work in circumstances in which there is regular clinical
Linkage Meeting Linkage meetings are regular meetings of members of the individual’s support team (e.g. Residential staff, MPRS staff , CPS, Case Mangers, Family members, Other supports) that occur at least once per month. The Linkage Meeting includes the individual. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the individual’s progress with the objectives contained in the Unified Services Plan (PGP) related to the Service Coordination Meetings and any other new relevant issues and concerns regarding the individual’s well-being.

defects due to inspection/supervision of construction, construction equipment defects, construction materials defect, contractual administration defects, specifications defects and design defects in maintenance practicability and adequacy. Adejimi, (2005); Usman, et al (2012) on the other hand identified twelve factors such as design resolution, structural strength, specified material strength, maintenance manual, safety measures, skill maintenance personnel, maintenance plants, environmental factors, usage factors, quality control factors and post construction prevention strength. Waziri & Vanduhe (2013) listed nineteen factors affecting building maintenance in Nigeria. These include among others lack of preventive maintenance, faulty workmanship, design resolution, use of sub-standard materials. Others are lack of communication between maintenance contractors and clients, lack of understanding the benefits of maintenance, non availability of replacement parts and components, technological change. In this study some of these factors are adapted.
Methods: We used a retrospective cohort study design, using claims and automated medical record data to compare achievement on quality indicators for elderly Medicare recipients. Secondary data were collected from 1) HMO data sets and 2) Medicare claims files for the time period 1994–95. All subjects were Medicare enrollees in a defined area of New England: those enrolled in two divisions of a managed care plan with different physician payment arrangements: a staff model, and a group model; and the Medicare FFS population. We abstracted information on indicators covering several domains: preventive, diagnosis-specific, and chronic disease care.
In hatchery litter recycling by the drying method, costs include costs of oil, fuel, power, packing, tempo- rary staff, repair and maintenance, fire prevention, in- surance, transportation, rental value of the litter recy- cling unit, permanent staff, business insurance, depreci- ation, and miscellaneous costs. The initial costs of recy- cling hatchery litter by using litter drying machines in- clude land acquisition, construction of facilities, litter drying machine, and other equipment. On the other hand, benefits are the total value of processed waste in monetary terms, which are sold to the broiler farms as feed.
When a prisoner is diagnosed as being acutely mentally ill, consideration should be given by healthcare staff to referring the prisoner for assessment with a view to obtaining a place for them in a psychiatric unit/hospital. In the meantime, they should be managed appropriately to meet their needs with appropriate levels of mental health nursing and planned activity during the day. This does not mean an automatic move to a healthcare bed or another prison location as many people can be managed safely in general population and isolating them can serve to exacerbate the illness.
communities that met criteria related to size and not having received similar such training in the last year. Trainers from the identified chapters were selected and prepared to deliver FDC by staff at the national office. A description of the training content and delivery protocol was included in a detailed manual provided to each trainer. The manual contained scripted text, planned activities, and a timeframe for each component. Trainers also attended a training session for the evaluation of FDC, conducted by staff from the national office of the Alzheimer‟s Association and research staff. Trainer instructions included the following statement: “This is a completely scripted training program. Everything you need to do and say is carefully laid out for you.” In addition, trainers were asked to participate in monthly conference calls with research staff and staff from the national office of the Alzheimer‟s Association. The discussion during these calls focused on the need to adhere to the program protocol, data collection procedures, and challenges and solutions to training delivery such as low attendance and inadequate space.
Several studies have assessed staff attitudes in the addiction field [16-19]. Differences in staff attitudes have been associated with treatment practices and outcomes [20-22]. OMT staff 's favour towards abstinence-models has been associated with provision of low dose metha- done [22,23]. Abstinence-oriented OMT staff have had more in-treatment drug use and more drop out com- pared to programmes where staff were long-term mainte- nance-oriented [20,21,24]. Strong attitudes and the beliefs of the majority are more likely to influence behav- iour than weaker attitudes held by only one or few per- sons [25-28]. Consequently staff attitudes should be included when OMT programmes are assessed.
