Corridors should never be used as storage areas.
You should never leave any objects eg stock, rubbish, client’s property in the corridors for any length of time. Even though you may feel that there is adequate room for people to get by, in an emergency situation items could get knocked over and cause delays in evacuation which could have serious consequences. Clients or colleagues my have to use wheelchairs or baby buggies and will need more room to manoeuvre.
