According to OSHA, one of the main reasons for incidents on a jobsite is a lack of housekeeping. Housekeeping is an ongoing hazard when it comes to construction projects. Taking time to clean up the work area(s) could save someone from slipping or tripping, preventing an injury that could keep them off work for days, weeks, or even months. Next time, it could be YOU who gets hurt.
Housekeeping is everyone’s job – every trade, every worker, and every supervisor. It’s a job you should do every day, not just once a week or when the project is over. Good housekeeping does more than prevents injuries. It can save time and it can keep your tools from being lost, damaged, or destroyed.
