Health & Safety: Perry Library Goods Lifts

Goods Lifts


Please do not travel in the PL goods lifts - instead put items to be moved in lift, close doors from outside and send lift to the floor you want - this will reduce likelihood of becoming stuck in lift which can happen if you open doors at wrong moment when inside lift

If you need to use goods lift to transport a person due to mobility difficulties (eg if passenger lifts broken) then staff member should send person in lift but operate doors from outside rather than travelling in lift with them - again to avoid possibility of getting stuck when opening doors from inside

Health and Safety staff have confirmed that we should not use the areas outside the goods lifts for storing items on any floors as these are refuge areas, and items placed in them could help the spread of fire.

Consequently we should not leave any items in these areas including at basement level

There are marked areas on the 4  book floors where book trolleys (either full or empty) can sit without blocking passageways around the floor. Please put any trolleys you are taking to floors in these areas so as to keep passageways clear


3 East - far end of floor

4 East - corner area adjacent to the round study pod

3 West - far end of floor

2 West - area outside the silent computer room

These areas are all marked with blue signs saying 'Book Trolleys'


Other items which need to be disposed of (eg broken pieces of furniture/crates etc) - please contact EAE and log a job for them to be removed rather than placing them in goods lift areas

There is now some space in the office area on 1 East where items can be placed temporarily while awaiting collection if needed


Spare book trolleys which are in a usable condition have been placed in our store room in the basement and can be retrieved at busy times if needed
