Warehouse safety sometimes gets ignored, perhaps on the assumption that it’s part of “safety” in general. But warehouses have specific and unique safety hazards, and as a result it’s worth looking at those in more detail and on their own.
I recently attended a pre-conference workshop at the Washington Governor’s Industrial Safety and Health Conference on warehouse safety, which was led by folks from the University of Washington’s Department of Environmental & Occupational Health Sciences and which functions as OSHA 7005.
I’ll be writing in more detail about warehouse safety in future weeks, but thought I’d take a moment here to share some worthwhile tips I picked up in the training.
All credit to the class instructor (Dana Stahl), UW, and the UW Department of Environmental & Occupational Health Sciences on this one.
And with that, let’s get on to sharing some important warehouse safety tips.
