10 tips to create a safer workplace

Warehouse safety needs to be a priority, finding the time to is often the challenge. A robust risk plan and adopting technology is the simplest way to improve your warehouse compliance to safety. 

A risk plan takes a holistic approach to your business and task orientated approach to identify risk, existing controls, the additional controls required, who is responsible and how you monitor your performance.  The risk plan is like an ongoing planner to drive performance and provide opportunity for continuous improvement.

  • Tasks.
  • Equipment.
  • Training.
  • Audits and planning.
  • Emergency situations.
  • What if scenarios.

So not every warehouse Is going to be designed specifically to meet your needs. But the way you move people and product though the warehouse can significantly increase OR decrease  equipment interactions. It is this kind of Warehouse Compliance Management, which can potentially reduce manual handling.

  • Office location.
  • Racking layout and direction in relation to inbound and outbound doors and docks.
  • Project demand and storage requirements.
  • Picking and packing locations.
  • Forklift charging and parking zones.
  • People and forklift movements.

It’s a part of the legalisation, but more importantly meeting with teams and creating a collaborative approach bring people together creating a collective mind to solve proves, identify potential risks minimising business risks. Moreover, an engaged workforce is happier, more productive and likely have a higher retention rate.

  • Daily meetings, what’s happening.
  • Toolbox meetings.
  • OHS committee meetings.
  • Onboarding new client and product teams.

Having clear signage in place is the first step to increasing people’s situational awareness and setting the standard for your workplace and culture.  

Signs to Consider:

  • Car parking, visitor parking, office, all visitors must sign in.
  • Emergency assembly points.
  • Forklifts operating in this area.
  • Driver safe zones.
  • Speed limits.
  • Emergency contacts
  • PPE requirements, high visibility clothing, protective footwear.
  • First aid kits, defibrillator,
  • Emergency spill kits.
  • Danger, battery charging, risk of explosion and gases.
  • Emergency maps to be placed near exit points.

Key to a great warehouse management system, is keeping your staff, contractors and visitors trained and informed. This is an essential part in creating and maintaining a safe workplace:

  • Inductions for Staff, Casuals, logistics and contractors (consider annual inductions).
  • Notice boards to share information.
  • Train people on core and high-risk tasks.
  • Only competent and licensed people can operate mobile equipment (forklifts, pallet movers, order pickers etc).
  • Create instructions for tasks.

People working around moving equipment creates a high-risk environment. A structured Warehouse Compliance Management system eliminates any safety issues. 

Safety controls to consider:

  • Traffic management plan.
  • Traffic risk assessment.
  • Barriers to segregate people and forklifts where possible.
  • Inward folding gates in high traffic and cross over points.
  • Clearly marked pedestrian walkways and crossings.
  • Safety zone lighting on forklifts.
  • Driver safe zones defined.
  • Bollards and protective barriers.

PPE is low on the hierarchy of safety controls and plays a part in protecting people from harm. If your warehouse handles dangerous, flammable or hazardous goods, refer to the product safety data sheet for storage and handling requirements. To help with warehouse compliance PPE may include;

  • High visibility clothing.

  • Protective footwear.

  • Protective gloves.

A clean, tidy workplace reduces risks and creates a culture of safety and efficiency.
