Workplace Housekeeping Training for Employees and Businesses
Housekeeping is a critical aspect of workplace safety that involves keeping workspaces clean, organized and free of potential hazards.

Benefits of Workplace Housekeeping Training
Workplace safety incidents are reduced by as much as 90% when steps were taken to improve housekeeping practices, according to a recent study by the International Journal of Industrial Ergonomics.
For example, cleaning up spills, clearing walkways, and organizing materials reduces the risk of slips, trips and falls. Properly storing and disposing of flammable materials and regularly inspecting electrical systems can prevent fires. Proper ventilation can improve indoor air quality and prevent respiratory problems caused by dust, mold and other allergens.
Training employees on good housekeeping practices not only prevents workplace injuries and illnesses but increases workplace efficiency by making it easier to find tools and materials, while also reducing hazards to improve workplace safety.
