When working within a warehouse, you should be aware of the hazards that could have an impact on yourself and your colleagues.

When we refer to a warehouse, it can be a free-standing facility or a warehouse in connection with a manufacturing plant or construction site.

Warehousing work activities create numerous health and safety risks. Adding health & safety topics to your warehouse meetings can reduce employee turnover, underperforming staff, injuries and illnesses, lost working days, legal issues and in worst case scenarios, even fatalities.

When working within a warehouse and involved in lifting activities, it is required to comply with The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998. It outlines requirements related to inspection of lifting equipment and similar.

Our warehouse toolbox talk helps keep employees safe and reduce health and safety issues in workplaces where work is carried out inside a warehouse and operations associated with this work.
