Antea Group is always pleased to host our technology industry peer event, EHSxTech®. Our latest event focused on data center operations and how peers are navigating their environment, health, and safety (EHS) challenges. We welcomed two data center professionals who led a panel discussion and shared their individual EHS journeys at their organizations and some of their strategies for making EHS compliance progress.
Lone work is an increasing concern for many data centers, especially as the "great resignation" continues and organizations are operating with fewer employees. Some companies have found success in allowing data center sites to make decisions and facilitate lone work policies based on the location of the site. This allows them to accommodate the various rules and regulations specific to the site's location as well as meet cultural expectations. Others have a more direct approach requiring the entire organization to follow one policy.

Data Center operators and businesses need predictability in their power supplies. Their infrastructure has to operate regardless of grid stability, weather conditions and other factors that threaten their systems.
Network problems, IT system failures and hosting disruptions are significant reasons for data center outages. The biggest culprit, though, remains interrupted power supply, according to research from the Uptime Institute.
