Keeping Your Workplace Clean
The Unorganized Office
An unorganized office can be the cause of several hazardous situations that are easily avoidable. Office workers suffer tens of thousands of injuries and work-related health problems each year. Being aware of the hazards that result from an unorganized office is the first step toward eliminating them.
Slips, trips, sprains, or strains can be simply avoided if proper processes are implemented, and safe office space ergonomics are observed. Poor air quality, lighting and electrical issues, fire hazards, excessive noise, and workplace violence are also part of the problem. Either your HR department or an outsourced inspection team can call many of these issues to your attention. Clean Green Solutions offers such a team.
6 Benefits of an Organized Workplace
In an organized workplace there are many benefits. An uncluttered and well-organized workspace reduces stress levels. It’s always a good idea to take the time to clean and organize your workspace. This will help you be more productive and efficient. Here are 6 direct benefits of a clean, uncluttered, and well-organized workplace.
A Positive Attitude
Your outlook, and that of your staff, is greatly influenced by activity levels. To have the best workday possible, you need to be able to reap the many benefits that moving around brings you. A more positive outlook and an energetic body will help you get through your day with ease.
Work can be a source of stress, from deadlines to conflicts. You can find ways to manage your stress by eliminating many things that add to it, like simplifying and improving your work environment. A clean and well-organized workplace significantly reduces your stress levels and helps prevent that feeling of being overwhelmed.
The environment you’re in is going to have a physical and mental effect on you, even though you may not notice it. For instance, feeling as though you are not in a professional environment can affect your personal performance. A professional workspace can really enhance your mood and help you get in the groove of working. By taking the time to organize your desk and keep it clean, you’ll be able to focus on the task at hand without distractions.
A productive person is one who can focus. Your ability to focus affects not just the amount of work accomplished, but also the quality. There is nothing more distracting than having to sift through clutter every time you want to get to work, taking your mind away from the actual task at hand.
There are plenty of things that will draw your attention away from the work you’re doing, from the Internet and your phone to co-workers. Your ability to concentrate on your work directly relates to your ability to focus your attention.
Over-All Better Morale
A staff that works in a clean and well-maintained environment is more likely to maintain better morale, be satisfied with their job, and have a positive attitude towards their work.
