Loose cables can easily become a tripping hazard. According to the Health and Safety Executive, “Statistics show slipping and tripping to be the single most common cause of major injury in UK workplaces and they are often the initiators of accidents attributed to other causes, such as some machinery accidents, scalding and falls from height.”
To prevent injuries caused by loose cables and wires, it is essential to keep walkways clear, use cable covers and tidy cables and wires away.
Note: “Out of sight, out of mind” will not work. Tidy your loose cables properly.
Cluttered space leads to cluttered minds.
Who wants to work in a cluttered space? Would you get anything done if all you could see were nests of loose cables everywhere? The right answer is no, to both questions. A 2019 study found that physical environments significantly influence employee performance and wellbeing. Cluttered spaces proved to have negative effects on stress and anxiety levels, as well as the ability to focus and more. Boost productivity by having a tidy work environment.
First impressions count.
Clients and guests that visit your office might not be impressed when seeing a cluttered, unorganised and overall messy workspace. First impressions matter, after all. Displaying a clean and tidy workspace is the first step in impressing future clients that visit your office.
