Operation instruction and why it's important for your business in Philadelphia, PA

There are a lot of minor details that go into running a business. It’s important that you have someone on staff who understands the necessary tasks to ensure that everything about your business runs smoothly. From your team to your building to standard operating procedures, complete documentation of operation instruction can save you time and money to keep you running like a well-oiled machine. If you’re not sure why operation instruction in Philadelphia, PA is a must-have to your business, IBM Construction Management & General Contractor has four reasons why.


With every building comes warranties on services and supplies that it took to construct it and construction guidelines. As a building operation manager, you’ll want to make sure that you have all warranty information handy to ensure a fast and seamless repair as needed. Part of your operation instruction will consolidate all warranty information to a single location to make it easier to take the necessary steps to get warranty work completed. A professional manager will consolidate and manage all necessary information for you.

Knowing the guidelines that went into a building’s construction is necessary for any remodeling and renovations that need to be done. An operation instruction manager will have this information ready for you when it comes time to prepare for any improvements you want to make.

Standard operating procedures

Every business has its own standard operating procedures that make it run each day. Your operation instruction should include a detailed document that includes everything from the proper way to log time to what needs to be done in case of an emergency. Having procedures documented and consolidated in one place makes for quick and efficient training for new employees.

Maintenance information

Things in your office are going to breakdown, accidents are going to happen, and there is regular maintenance that needs to be performed. Your operation instruction manual should include a complete catalog of the equipment that your business uses as well as proper maintenance on your facility as well. This can make for quick and easy maintenance with the crew that you already have on staff or a contractor who comes in to perform necessary work. Maintenance information for tasks that need to be completed daily, monthly, yearly, and beyond should be outlined in detail to ensure that your business runs without interruption in a safe environment.

Emergency procedures

Emergencies come in many forms. Office fires, natural disasters, and accidents are among a few possible situations that require an emergency plan. Your operation instruction should include detailed emergency procedures to ensure the safety of your employees and customers. Your operation manager will help you provide your team with the necessary information they need in order to be prepared for such situations. Whether this is a poster on the wall in the break room or briefings regarding proper procedures, you can be confident that your team will know what to do in case of an emergency.
