I’m the IT manager at my company. Seeing as winter is coming, in the supervisor meeting today I expressed concern about the use of candles. I said that I thought they were rather dangerous because we are in a wooden building and we all work with large amounts of paper. I’m also concerned people will forget about them and go home. What I worry about most is a server destroying fire, though I do have a plan in place for that.
In any case, the other supervisors acted like my concern was the most ridiculous thing they ever heard, and even cracked a couple jokes at my expense.
So I guess this is a two question poll:
Are candles allowed in your office?
Do you think my concern is valid, or unreasonable?
