Putting people together with machines in a warehouse is always going to create safety issues ? and they will be particularly acute at the busiest times.
Loading bays can be particularly problematic because of temporary drivers or visitors who may not be used to the equipment or the operation.
A lack of communication between drivers and warehouse staff can also contribute to safety risks so it is important for forklift operators to be aware of their environment, including pedestrians and hazardous conditions. During wet weather, water can collect in a loading bay causing a slip hazard and both pedestrians and forklift operators should be aware of this.
Another significant cause of accidents can be down to lack of supervision or poor organisation of the whole operation. Supervision can help to minimise bad practice and ensure that all staff are adhering to regulations. According to health and safety executives, incorrect manual handling is the most common cause of workplace injuries with statistics showing that transport and storage has the highest handling injury rate of all industries. This is a huge problem and costs the industry unthinkable amounts of money on an annual basis.
Putting things in place such as pedestrian barriers, bollards, rack end barriers etc can really help massively to keep your warehouse and employees safe and cut down on warehouse accidents.
