OSHA's Position On Safety Housekeeping Training
When you consider the word “housekeeping”, you may get an image of scrubbing surfaces in order to eliminate germs and subsequent illnesses. While this can be an extremely important aspect of many workplaces, there is another type of housekeeping to consider. As per OSHA mandatory specifications (29 CFR 1910.22(a)(1)), this type of safety-related housekeeping can significantly reduce accidents and injuries in the work environment. According to the CDC, slips, trips and falls are the second leading cause of Occupational Injuries. However, the most startling aspect of their report is that the majority of the 50,000 cases, that are annually reported, could have been avoided if Safety Housekeeping practices had been in place! This problem can be addressed by our "Safety Housekeeping and Accident Prevention" training programs. These programs are designed to train employees to follow procedures that will prevent accidents by adhering to all OSHA requirements. The topics contained in these safety housekeeping programs include:
- Keeping stairways and aisles clear
- Permanent aisles and passageways (OSHA 1910.22(b)(2))
- Dealing with hazardous materials
- Proper tool storage (OSHA 2236)
- And many other topics
