Workplace Safety and PPE
PPE, or Personal Protective Equipment, is essential to working safely. Some workers may find them inconvenient, but they’re essential for reducing warehouse injuries. As such, you should ensure that your team wears them as necessary.
Protective eyewear, gloves, high-visibility jackets, hardhats, and other equipment make a big difference. When on the job, most workers don’t expect a mishap. But, every worker should expect to wear their PPE. This is one of the most important safety tips you should take to heart.
A Clean, Dry Warehouse is a Safe Warehouse
Wet and dirty floors are the perfect recipe for slips, trips, and falls. As such, workplace safety dictates that these areas should always be clean. Debris is also a potential hazard, so be sure to keep your surfaces clear of these, as well.
Not only does this make working safely easier, it reduces your potential costs as a business. Workers and equipment are safer when there is nothing to slip on or trip over. It’s easy to do and well worth the time spent.
