Creating a Safe Environment for Warehouse Employees

Working in a warehouse can be very risky if the proper safety precautions are not followed. Because of the constant use of high-powered machines within close proximity of the employees, warehouse safety should be your higher priority. 
 We here at Safety Solutions and Supply want you to be able to keep your employees safe, maintain an efficient operating system, and minimize the risk of injury. By providing the below items you’ll be on your way toward maintaining a safe environment for your warehouse employees. 

  • Information Resources
    Employees cannot perform their job flawlessly if they are not aware of all the proper safety procedures. You can provide safety information for your employees, by hanging brightly colored signs, meeting regularly, and providing training courses
  • Daily Enforcements 
    Enforcing training daily will help safety measures stay in the front of everyone’s mind. You can do this by requiring employees to collect their safety equipment daily, keep a clean workplace, and check all equipment regularly. You can also encourage this with rewards for employee of the month, or awarding bonuses for exemplary safety behavior.
  • Organization Standards
    The majority of all warehouse accidents are because of trip hazards and cluttered pathways. By encouraging employees to maintain an organized work space, it will reduce the risk of injury significantly. 
  • Lock out /Tag out (LOTO) Procedures
    Because warehouses contain a lot of high-powered machines, all employees should be trained on the proper LOTO procedures. Detailed instructions should be posted on every machine to remind employees the importance of LOTO. 

Safety procedures are most effective when they start from the top down, as it helps build values into the company’s culture.
