It can be a struggle to maintain a clean factory or warehouse. Read on to find out everything you need to know to keep your premises and machinery clean, tidy and organised in order to meet heath and safety regulations.
Health and safety regulations
The benefits to keeping your factory or warehouse clean and tidy are above all else so that health and safety regulations are met. If these are not met then your premises are likely to be closed down. The health and safety at work act requires all staff to ensure the health and safety of anyone on the premises. This will involve risk assessments, ensuring all risks are immediately dealt with for the safety of everyone on the premises. All floors must be clear and free from any obstructions.
If all health and safety measures are not met then your factory or warehouse can not only put your staff in unnecessary danger, but can also result in your business closure. Obviously closure will result in financial loss which is the worst scenario for any business.
When your warehouse or factory premises are clean, tidy and organised then your staff are more likely to grow their productivity. Having an organised space makes it easier to work with, knowing where everything is makes things run more smoothly creating a more proactive team. Your staff will appreciate you ensuring a clean tidy environment for them and are likely to work harder which will increase proactivity. Productivity growth will always result in increased profit to your business!
Warehouse/factory deep clean
Busy premises will have a build up of grime and dust, this in turn can negatively effect the working order of your equipment. This is why every so often your warehouse or factory will need a deep clean. Not just for the health of your equipment but also the floors will need a deep clean. Factory and warehouse floors have a lot of traffic daily, so this will result in them getting very dirty. Having your factory or warehouse deep cleaned on a regular basis will keep on top of this, keeping your premises clean and safe for your staff.
A deep clean on a factory or warehouse will take many hours to get completely free from dirt and grime, but is essential in this type of environment. You will have to ensure you have all the relevant cleaning supplies and equipment to do the job properly.
During your deep clean you must prep your staff, letting them know what needs to be done and where. The staff taking on the role of the deep clean must ensure any objects that are out of place must be put away i.e. trip hazards. Always note how many members of your staff were needed to do the deep clean properly and how long it took.
