Benefits of a clean warehouse

  • Keeping your workers safe and healthy. Many workplace injuries (and workers’ compensation claims) are due to slip-and-fall accidents caused by slippery, unclean floors. Dust can also be inhaled, leading to allergies and lung disease. Having clean floors minimizes these risks and helps you achieve OSHA compliance.

  • Ensuring your product quality. In some facilities, such as food manufacturing warehouses or electronics distribution centers, dust and grime can impact your product quality. Regular cleaning helps you ensure the quality of the parts, equipment, merchandise, and products you’re storing and transporting.

  • Warehouses Thriving in times of change

    The challenges for warehouses and distribution centers brought by the new normal are extensive, so floorcare and dust-management are only part of a larger whole. The understanding of what constitutes a high standard of clean, and the ability to maintain that standard, are both evolving and adapting for the sake of business, but more so for the sake of staff and customers. This period of evolution isn’t without its challenges, but opportunities for improved cleaning always lead to opportunities for increased success.
