This week we’ve been looking at slips, trips and falls. One of the most important preventative things you can do for them is to have a clean work area. Housekeeping is one of the most important things we can all do to help promote a safe environment.

Over the past 5 years we’ve had a couple of recordable accidents caused by poor housekeeping. Paper laying on the floor, strapping left around, tools not put back properly, etc.

Take a look here in the cafeteria for a moment. Go ahead, take a look around. Look closely . . . do you see something someone can slip on that isn’t supposed to be there? Did someone fail to pickup after themselves? The same thing applies to the entire facility.

So as you go out to your area today, take a look around your machine. Ensure there isn’t a trip or slip hazard. If there is . . . take care of it. It’s important we all do our part to ensure we have a safe and clean working environment.
