To help you make your facility safer, we have created this useful guide that offers helpful tips and information that can help you improve your workplace safety and help reduce hazards and injuries.
Most warehouses store flammable materials and if you use fire rated wall panels, you could be saving the lives of your employees and customers. There are many different types of fire rated wall panels available and choosing the one that is right for your building is important. Many industrial shelving systems are designed to mount securely to these panels as well.
Is your warehouse loud? Employees could experience hearing loss of they don?t take the proper precautions. Hearing protection should always be worn in areas where the sound levels are above 90 decibels and if your building uses mobile shelving, you could position them to block out much of the sound before it reaches the office areas.
If your warehouse is large and you use a forklift to move products from one end to the other or onto rack shelving systems, be sure to install barrier railing to keep employees from walking into the path of a forklift. Many times, the driver cannot see around the load and won?t be able to stop safely in time. Even when a forklift is traveling at low speeds carrying a heavy load, it will have a lot of momentum, enough to serious damage.
Ensuring that your warehouse or stockroom is designed to be efficient, effective and safe is important. This includes having the right shelving and storage solutions to ensure employees can access products easily and without having to trade safety for convenience.
