Safety begins with good housekeeping:
a. Practice good housekeeping by keeping the work area, aisles, walkways, stairways, roads, or other points of egress clean and clear of all hazards.
b. Store and/or return parts, materials, tools, and equipment so as not to create a tripping hazard.
c. Clean-up scrap materials, debris, and other excess materials. Place oil soaked rags, trash, and scrap in proper waste containers.
d. Keep work area floors clean, dry, and free of oils, grease and liquids. Clean up all spills immediately.
e. Store parts, materials, or equipment with protruding sharp ends or edges where personnel can not acci-dentally bump into them.
f. Materials and equipment are not to be stored in the aisles or near exits. Permission in writing from your im-mediate supervisor must be obtained for temporary or permanent storage of any materials or equipment in aisles or near exits.
