Keeping Your Worksite Safe

  • 08 May 2017 15:17

Good housekeeping at work helps protect you and your co-workers from falls, fires and many other types of safety incidents and injuries.

Road Map to Safety

Here are some good Housekeeping Safety tips for everyone to follow:

  • Keep your work area tidy. Put away any materials or equipment when you are finished using them.
  • Pick up all trash and scrap materials and properly dispose of them.
  • Keep traffic areas clear of clutter which can cause slips, trips and falls.
  • Make sure emergency exits and safety equipment (fire extinguishers, first aid kits, etc.) are not blocked and available for easy access.
  • Keep work surfaces and floors as dry as possible. Clean up spills promptly.
  • Place warning signs around wet floors areas to caution personnel about slippery surfaces.
  • Store material properly. Do not place heavy items overhead. Secure materials so they cannot fall or roll.
  • Keep windows clean and unblocked to help provide the light to work safely.
  • Smoke only in designated areas. Dispose of smoking materials in non-combustible containers.
  • Light fixtures should be kept in good repair, and burned-out bulbs and tubes should be replaced promptly.
  • Keep eating areas clean and safe. Dispose of food and drink trash in garbage cans.

Remember a clean worksite is a safe worksite
