Healthy Handling 2005: Order and organisation

Fundamental to occupational health management

Consider:

Order and organisation

Disorderly sites and poor organisation can result in serious injury from slips and trips and longer term disability arising from musculo-skeletal disorders

HSE Inspectors will expect to find:

  • clean, tidy and well organised sites that are kept in good order;
  • pedestrian access routes and places of work kept free from obstructions;
  • materials stored and left in a safe and accessible condition.
