Reducing hazards in the warehouses.
Warehouse and distribution centres can be hazardous places to work in. With the constant activity of goods being received and dispatched, it’s extremely important that dangers and hazards are observed and addressed to ensure the worksite is made safe for employees and visitors.
Three common warehouse safety hazards include:
A critical piece of equipment in warehouse and distribution centers, incorrect operation of forklifts can cause serious harm to operators and workers. Ensuring correct visual communication around the worksite, such as signage, floor marking tapes and safety mirrors, can help lead to a safer workplace.
Equipment such as conveyor belts can help increase efficiency in warehouses, but they can also pose a safety risk if not handled correctly. Having correct signage to warn of hazards when using the machinery and following correct lock out tag out procedures during maintenance and repairs is essential.
- Hazardous Chemicals
Potentially one of the most dangerous aspects of warehouse facilities is the storage and handling of dangerous goods. For this reason specialist dangerous goods solutions should be used if there are chemicals present in your workplace.
