TT brief: operating a safe warehouse
Are your warehouse operations as safe as they could be?
According to Health and Safety Executive (UK) statistics, approximately 28,000 workers in the United Kingdom alone sustain non-fatal injuries at work each year. Slip, trip and fall incidents account for 32% of these injuries and being struck by a moving or falling object accounts for 11%. The average annual rate of fatal injury in the transport and storage sector is around twice the average rate across all other industries.
Creating a safe and secure environment can not only reduce the risk of injury to staff but also reduce cargo damage and its impact on profitability. This TT Brief highlights good practice you
should consider to reduce the risk of accidents in your warehouses.
