Who is Responsible for Housekeeping

WHO is Responsible for Housekeeping

ALL EMPLOYEES share the responsibilities of keeping their work place free from the accumulation of materials. Additional responsibilities are often assigned to specific departmental employees or others.

The practice extends from traditional offices to industrial workplaces, including factories, warehouses and manufacturing plants that present special challenges such as hazardous materials, combustible dust and other flammables. Experts agree that all workplace safety programs should incorporate housekeeping, and every worker should play a part. In addition, housekeeping should have management’s commitment so workers realize its importance.

Housekeeping “IS” your job & responsibility!

  • Don’t be the one who say’s “it’s not my job
  • Don’t wait for “the other guy” to do it
  • Take action when you see a problem
