Seismic Hazard Mitigation

All free­standing partitions, bookcases, shelving, and cabinets six feet (6’) or taller must be braced or anchored to prevent them from tipping over in a large earthquake.

Please submit a Building Services online iRequest work order for this service:

If you need assistance or have questions about specific office furnishings or equipment, please contact the Building Services Work Management Center at 987-­0600.

For your own safety, maintain a seismically safe work area:·

  • Place large or heavy objects on lower shelves.
  • Store breakables on lower shelves or inside closed cabinets.
  • Keep overhead cabinets closed and latched.
  • Do not place heavy artwork or other heavy objects above your desk.

Conduct a pre-Earthquake Inspection Checklist of your workspace.
