When you skip a day of cleaning at home, you might be embarrassed at your next dinner party. When you let cleanliness slide at a warehouse or distribution center, though, the stakes are much higher. Unclean conditions risk worker safety and seriously limit production, trashing efficiency ratings. Besides, OSHA Standard 1910.141(a) requires you to keep work areas clean and dry. If you distribute food, the FDA cleanliness standards are even more strict.
