Action Plan & Activities for Stopping Energy Waste
Energy waste is a very costly problem for Hospitals everywhere. These costs directly affect everyone by reducing profits and the ability to make business improvements. When you consider the amount of energy wasted in your facility, you see how that improvements could be made with new equipment or better resources with just a few energy efficiency improvements.
Informed employees can play an important role in tracking down and stopping energy waste. Management's role is to empower its people by giving them information and processes in which they can participate. It is around this philosophy that AwarenessIDEAS built its Hospital Employee Awareness Energy Conservation Program.
From creating awareness, developing interest, promoting motivation by demonstrating benefits, moving people to action, to giving recognition when deserved, we can be your partner in energy conservation.
For thirty years, our people have been helping clients design energy awareness and process materials that track and reinforce good energy habits. AwarenessIDEAS programs have been successfully used in Hospitals, medical centers, clinics and private practice for many years. We customize ideas and products to fit your needs. Here are some suggestions that are easily transferrable to your organization.
ENERGY ACTION PLAN
Set a standard for energy usage that everyone can agree upon. One standard awarenessIDEAS recommends is: "All Processes shall conform to the energy expectations and requirements designed into the system and only in the amount of energy usage necessary to do the job. Just enough is enough energy." Get that message across using every avenue of communications open to you. Let us create banners and posters with your Energy Vision or Message. These can hang in your facility lounge, your hallways or any where else that a message of energy conservation would be beneficial.
Use appropriate decals and signage by your machinery and energy switches that reinforce your energy conservation mission.
Post a sign or banner that encourages employees to "sign-on" to the cause.
Hold contests to create a fun & efficient way to spread enthusiasm for your energy conservation efforts.
Create Energy Teams to coordinate activities throughout your Hospital.
Use our write-on/wipe-off tracking boards designed to monitor your specific areas.
Use energy posters & decals to spotlight specific kinds of energy waste and their cost.
Use our leak tag information boards and accompany them with reinforced banners and posters.
Encourage all employees to "Adopt-A-Door".
Create a display to showcase the effects of your efforts that can be moved & displayed in different parts of the hospital.
Use our energy information boards to hold posters and hospital energy information inserts.
Pass out our Energy Tip Booklets to all your employees' families.
