good housekeeping prevents hazards

Practice Ongoing Housekeeping

A work area can be clean at the start of a shift but over time things can get pretty cluttered. You may notice tools, equipment and other materials building-up which makes for a messy work environment. Throughout your day, take a good look around and remove anything that isn’t required in your work area so it is as neat and tidy as possible. What else can you do? Well, you can make a habit of cleaning up after yourself. Pick up any trash or debris and dispose of it properly. Mop up spills immediately, before someone slips. You can also implement a routine cleaning schedule so housekeeping doesn’t get out of hand in your area. This will also minimize the time needed at the end of shift to clean up a larger mess. Please remember that an uncluttered workplace shows respect for those who work there.
