Healthy Handling 2005: Order and organisation

Fundamental to occupational health management


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.
