Warehouses play a critical role in our economy. They are the hubs of the transportation, storage, and distribution of all types of materials, and help keep business and industry going strong. As a result, they are very busy places, which can give rise to a lot of hazardous situations.
Every year, thousands of warehouse workers are injured on the job, and there are more fatalities in warehouses than in most other workplaces. But it doesn't have to be that way.
Warehouse safety depends on employees understanding the work-related risks they're subject to and knowing how to avoid them. Ignoring the risks in warehouse work will not make them go away. To protect themselves against accidents, employees need to meet warehouse hazards "head on." They can do that best by being "safety minded."
This program remindes employees that if they take some basic safety measures, they can prevent accidents from occurring.
