Part 12 General Safety Precautions

Section 185 Housekeeping

Slipping and tripping are common workplace hazards. Employers are responsible for making sure that the work site, and in particular entry and exit routes at a work site, are free of waste, materials and equipment. Obstructed entry and exit routes can pose a serious hazard to workers having to leave a work site quickly, as might be required during an emergency. Obstructions may reduce visibility at a work site and may also present a tripping hazard.
