    How important is it to keep your work surface clutter-free


    Many of us are familiar with the sight of a desk covered in papers, stationery and post-its, especially as Christmas approaches and there seems to be even less time available for keeping on top of things and ensuring your work space is tidy. If you’re one of the many people out there who constantly has a cluttered work surface, you may find that you run the risk of accidents at work and work-related illness.

    How important is it to keep your work surface clutter-free?

    Even the most organised people can accumulate clutter towards the end of a busy week or when a deadline is approaching, but it’s best to try to keep your work surface clutter-free to reduce the risk of work injuries and save you time and effort. A tidy workspace is easier to work with and it will also reduce the risk of work-related injuries such as stress and anxiety, repetitive strain injury or back and neck pain, as you can sit properly and position your keyboard in the correct position. Keeping the area around your workspace clear will also decrease the risk of slips, trips and falls and injuries such as fractures, cuts and grazes, bruising and dislocations.

    Tips for dealing with clutter

    If you find yourself constantly battling clutter at work, here are simple tips to help you keep your work surface clutter-free for good:

    • file work away on a daily basis
    • invest in some folders and use an in and out tray system
    • use desktop storage
    • set aside 10 minutes every day to give your desk a quick tidy; doing it frequently will save you having to deal with a huge mess every month
