Keeping a facility clean helps improve productivity and employee morale. In addition, it
presents a positive image to customers, stakeholders and the community. A clean facility can also help ensure greater compliance with environmental, health and safety regulations. Leaks and spills can happen anywhere – from the front office to the shipping dock; and beyond. These spills create waste and can lead to costly environmental fines - especially if the spill leaves the facility. Leaks and spills can also contribute to worker injuries, causing piles of medical bills, workman’s compensation claims and lost work time.
