Wearing the proper clothing and personal protective equipment in the working environment is critical. Appropriate clothing is your first and often only line of defense against many safety and health hazards.
Proper clothing is key. Simple as it may sound, you must dress for the occasion. Wearing stylish clothing can create a bigger hazard or may not provide protection from hazards while you work. Proper clothing that protects is the key. It is not uncommon to hear about tragedies that have taken place when a worker who was wearing loose clothing got too close to an operating machine and was drawn into the machine. Machines are powerful and unforgiving! Loose clothing is never appropriate in an industrial workplace.
In the office where of people work together day after day, you’re bound to run into some issues regarding shared spaces like the kitchen.
There are always stacks of dirty dishes piling up turns the sink into a breeding ground for bacteria and odors.
As well as garbage and food left on the counter and spills invite bugs and pests while simultaneously taking up space that your colleagues need to prepare their food.
