AT WORK TIPS

Storage and Inventory Control
- Purchase products that have multiple uses.
Properly store all materials and have a spill control plan if fluids are involved.
Buy only what you need, when you need it. Reduce inventory in storage and accumulation of products.

Copy and print double-sided whenever possible. Avoid printing e-mails.
Reuse envelopes, filing folders, hanging files, and other office supplies.
Use paper efficiently in printers by reducing margins, line spacing and font size.
Keep a desk-side box for recycling office paper.
Use e-mail to handle phone messages, internal correspondence, and inter-office communications, including document transfers to clients.
