Tidy warehouse, tidy mind

You may have heard the saying ‘tidy house, tidy mind’, but did you know this also applies to warehouses? A tidy warehouse, a tidy mind! A clean, well-organised warehouse is an efficient, safe and healthy place to work. It helps to provide a happy and productive environment for your employees, while giving a positive impression to all who visit.

We thank SpaceVac International for the graphic below which neatly summarises why warehouses should be kept clean and tidy.
