Ultimate Warehouse Safety Tips – Driven by Data
Great, another article on warehouse safety tips. There are many articles out on the Internet that talk about warehouse safety. All of the blogs, articles and white papers discuss valid topics such as forklifts, hazardous materials, loading dock, slip and falls and falling objects. When everything is a warehouse safety concern, what is the safety priority list?
When you ask any warehouse manager to list their top safety concerns, the priority list will vary. The dynamics within a facility change by location. Where damage due to forklift impacts may be a high concern in one facility, the transportation of chemicals within another plant may be the top priority. The priority list is most times driven by the number of accidents or near-accidents that pertain to particular issues.
However, are these the right priorities? Is changing priorities based on accidents being reactive or proactive?
The only way to understand where the warehouse safety risks reside within the facility is to analyze the data.
