Warehouse safety should be a big deal to your company. Even if you don’t work in the warehouse, the safety of the employees working around the pallet racks in your Wisconsin warehouse matters a lot. Not only are their physical health and safety at risk, but you run the risk of facing legal action and a huge loss to your bottom line when warehouse safety isn’t a top concern. Racking strategies should be under constant evaluation; racks and forklifts are two of the most common citations from OSHA officials in the warehouse environment.
Training is the first step to ensuring a safe warehouse environment. Making sure your forklift drivers and other employees understand and are following safety rules will help you keep everyone safe. The second step is to perform your own inspections regularly. Check the pallet racks in your Wisconsin warehouse for damage; something that seems like cosmetic damage could end up causing pallet racks to collapse. Make a note of damaged areas and seek to repair them properly. Finally, make sure your team has access to good, secure, and sturdy equipment to do their job. From forklifts to ladders, giving them the proper tools can help you avoid accidents in the workplace.
