Workplace Housekeeping Checklists

Published 9 Sep 2021

What is a Workplace Housekeeping Checklist?

A workplace housekeeping checklist is a tool used to ensure that the workplace is well organized, hygienic, and safe for all employees. Good housekeeping prevents workplace hazards such as slips, trips, falls, and more. Regular housekeeping in the workplace also improves productivity, boosts morale, and helps employers avoid potential fines for non-compliance.
