Easter Switch Off

29 Mar 2018

Think green and give your equipment a break too!


Before you leave for the Easter break, take a few easy steps to reduce electricity consumption in your department or building:

  • Log off your managed desktop PCs, switch off monitors and switch off any lights;
  • Check that the following devices are unplugged: phones, tablets, battery chargers, kitchen equipment, water coolers, portable heaters and extractor fans.
  • Make sure you include equipment such as water baths and drying ovens when doing a final check, and remember to close windows and doors!
  • Check with a lab technician before turning any lab equipment off.
