Because most people know what a floor is, it is not defined in Oregon OSHA’s rules. However, just to put everyone on the same level, we will offer this dictionary definition: A floor is "that part of a room which forms its lower enclosing surface and upon which one may walk." As you might have guessed, the most common hazards associated with floors are slips, trips, and falls. Keep your floors clean, dry (if possible), and free from protruding nails, splinters, holes, or loose boards.
