Housekeeping Tips for the Workplace

As an adult your mom might not be around  to tell you to pick up after yourself – but that doesn’t mean the sentiment should go away. Keeping a clean and clutter-free workplace is not only aesthetically pleasing, it keeps your workplace safer and reduces the risk for workplace accidents.

That box on the stairs or small spill on the floor could cause someone to slip, trip or fall and injure themselves, potentially putting them out of work–costing the company in insurance fees and lost time. This is why, while you mother might have backed off on the lectures the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) has stepped in and has set standards for housekeeping requirements in section 1910.22 of OSHA general requirements.

This Video On Demand training, Good Housekeeping: Keeping your Workplace Safe, presents all employees with information on keeping a safe workplace by demonstrating the dangers of poor housekeeping. Individuals must take responsibility for their own actions as well as for looking out for instances of poor housekeeping by other employees in order to help prevent accidents. By promoting awareness of the importance of good housekeeping practices you can help improve the safety of your work environment for everyone.
