During most work projects, significant amounts of scrap, rubble, refuse, and trash are generated. If the waste is left haphazardly strewn about the work area, the waste may become a hazard to those working in the vicinity. Designated disposal areas are the key to keeping work areas free of debris and eliminating hazards caused by debris. It is everyone’s responsibility to promote a clean, hazard free work environment; by taking the time to create and enforce a designated disposal area the workplace will become cleaner and safer.
