It is a commitment that we need to make as business owners and production managers. Putting good practices in place with consistency is the only way to maintain a cleaner and healthier work environment.
8 reasons a clean workplace is good for business:
The most obvious benefit of keeping the office clean is the benefit of healthier employees and a safer environment. Dust and hidden germs, bacteria and allergens may contribute to breathing problems and the spread of illness among workers.
We know it, but a lot of us ignore it, the lint all over our shop, it’s a fire hazard. We’ve seen shops go up in blaze because they did not pay enough attention to daily cleaning maintenance and organization of their stock. Many of the chemicals we use are flammable, so proper storage is imperative.
Reducing stress and anxiety in your shop. Cluttered workspaces and dirty work environment can increase stress and anxiety level among your employees.
Spills, slick floors, and protruding objects like cardboard on the floor, can contribute to falls and other accidents.
Employee satisfaction is important when it comes to improving work quality, as well as sustaining work motivation. You should try and do everything that will make your employees happier while they’re at work so they do their jobs with relative ease.With that said, a dirty and cluttered work space is not the way to go to make employees happy. If you and your team strive to keep a clean shop, it makes everyone much happier.
Your work environment can be a branding opportunity for your business. We see many shop owners and staff use their facility to bring customers in to show off their great work environment and culture. There are some really cool shops out there!!
Protect your investment! The equipment you purchased is expensive, and it will operate better and last longer if you keep up with cleaning and maintenance on it.
It improves the efficiency of your shop. If you have all of your supplies properly organized and trash removed, the staff will spend less time searching for items.
A cleaner and healthier environment in the workplace is appealing to potential customers. At the same time, it also improves the work-life of employees significantly.
