At Seneca Meadows we practice regular intervals of housekeeping as it is an essential element of safety.
Good housekeeping is a basic safety fundamental that can easily be overlooked as we strive for zero incidents across the operational corners of our facility, and it can also easily be overlooked at home in our every day routines.
5 tips for essential housekeeping for safety at home:
– Keep exits, stairs and hallways clear of obstructions or obstacles.
– Store and stack boxes and books in an appropriate place.
– Store items once they are no longer being used to avoid hazards and clutter.
– Clean as you go.
– Perform a weekly walk through inspection and fix any deficiencies.
