HOUSEKEEPING IS AN IMPORTANT PART OF YOUR JOB

Your employer is not your mother! What do I mean by that, you ask? I mean, just like when you were young, your mother had to remind you to pick up after yourself. Now that you are on your own, you still need to be told sometimes. Housekeeping is a very important part of your job. Not only does it improve the overall appearance of your shop or work area, it shows that you take pride in where you work. The best way that you can help keep your work place clean is to pick up after yourself! Don't leave it for the next shift or another craft to worry about.

Here are some reasons to keep your work area clean:

  1. You reduce trip and fall hazards.
  2. Increased production. You won't have to waste time looking for a misplaced tool. You will always know where your tools are when you put them where they belong after you use them.
  3. If someone falls because of materials you left on the floor, you will feel guilty because you were a causal factor in the accident. Also, the injured worker may want to remind you of that!
  4. You reduce a potential fire hazard by removing unneeded combustibles from the work area.
