1. Discover and Remove Any Potential Safety Hazards
It is important to ensure all warehousing floors are free of ‘slip and trip’ hazards. It is necessary that this safety check is carried out on a regular basis, by all employees, and that the floor is always free of stray cords, liquids and any other potentially hazardous items. It is also recommended that any cracks and pits in the flooring of your racking are attended to as these can cause serious injuries to employers as well as damaging expensive stock and machinery.
2. What are the warehouse health and safety regulations?
The warehouse health and safety regulations are similar to those in many other industries, but they may differ depending on other factors, such as how your facility operates or the types of goods you store on a regular basis. Let’s take a look at some of the laws you are likely to be subject to.
3. Always Label Designated Hazardous Zones
Dangerous equipment should be stored away in an area that is clearly labeled and safe walk ways should be highlighted through necessary signage. The easiest way to illuminate hazardous zones is by using tape or painting black and white stripes on the floor of the designated area. This enables employees to be aware of dangerous surroundings and can be useful in avoiding accidents that can cause serious injury.
