I remember my father getting annoyed with me when I would use something and put it away (in a place other than the place I retrieved it from) and as I got older I understood why. Clutter wastes time. Even if it’s a few seconds looking for a tool, over time, those seconds accumulate into minutes and minutes into hours. An organized workstation is an efficient workstation.
Whenever I am in a shop now I always pay attention to the organization and cleanliness of the area and this maintenance bay at Coleman Mine did not disappoint. Everything had it’s place and these individuals took pride in their work as well as their work environment.
