Effective workplace keeping can eliminate any hazards and help get a job done safely and properly.

Introduction and Overview

Poor practices can contribute to many accidents by hiding hazards that cause injuries. If the sight of paper, debris, clutter and spills is accepted as normal, then other more serious health and safety hazards may be taken for granted.

Introduction and Overview

Other examples of important workplace keeping tasks: • Remove nails from timber and stack in appropriate areas. • Operators of plant and equipment must ensure they do not compromise safe access and egress. • People or equipment must be prevented from falling into openings, trenches and from scaffolding, etc. • Scrap and waste material must be removed as soon as practical from work areas. • Keep the floors and walkways free of materials, timber, boxes, equipment and rubbish.
