The bulb you are looking at must be on the Identifier Sheet – or take a CLEAR picture – NO EXCEPTIONS!!!! It is critically important at this stage to NOT guess what the bulb is. Additionally, if there is uncertainty, speak with the Facilities Manager, or Chief Engineer, or Operations Director for clarity and accuracy concerning bulbs/lamps, volts, watts, etc.

 

COUNT ALL FIXTURES, FLOOR LAMPS, DESK LAMPS, AND ANYTHING  WITH A LIGHT BULB(i.e. exterior signs, exit lights, and aquariums, etc)

COUNT THE NUMBER OF BULBS IN EACH FIXTURE – IT IS CRITICAL TO LOOK AND DO NOT ASSUME! Fixtures that are NOT attached to buildings, or permanently mounted, must be noted as such along with their specific lamp type, wattage, location, etc.
