How Make A Warehouse Safe

All warehouses are full of hazards, from warehouse machinery to racking there are a number of items that pose a risk to your staff. Maintaining a safe work environment should be a priority at all times, not just when it becomes a problem. So how can you make your warehouse safe?

With so many hazards within the warehouse, the best option is to constantly monitor and assess for any potential dangers and carrying out corrective actions to remedy the hazard. Warehouse racking can be damaged easily with machinery operating in the area and it is often left unattended. Damaged warehouse racking poses a seriously dangerous threat to your staff as it impacts the load capacity of the system. A simple way to keep on top of what's seen as minor damage to your system is to engage in a Racking Safety Inspection. The Australian Standard AS4084-2012 recommends that they are carried out on an annual basis.
