I work in one of the oldest buildings of my company. The building was built in the 50s, and needless to say, is not in the best shape. But it's a little worse than that. The floors are never swept or mopped. In my office you can literally see the growth of dust on the floors and lesser-passed areas. My office has never been mopped or swept since I started here a number of years ago. The ceiling tiles are black with mold from years of dripping water from boiler pipes and A/C condensation. The bathroom smells of mold after water pipes exploded. We have toilets that have not been fixed since they were deemed unusable 2 years ago. There are literally asbestos walls surrounding my office that just have stickers on them that say "CAUTION ASBESTOS: AVOID CREATING DUST." Our elevator has been broken for 2 years and since I work a number of floors up we have to hand-carry a lot of our VERY heavy equipment up and down stairs including heavy electronics and motors.
When I sent an e-mail to the process improvement office, they told me I need to make a business case to remediate the problems. The cleaning staff is unable or unwilling to do this work beyond emptying the trash and cleaning the bathrooms.
Has anyone had this kind of problem and can you suggest any way to proceed to get some of these issues fixed?
