What is a warehouse safety checklist?


A warehouse safety checklist is used to enable facility managers to identify safety risks and implement preventive measures to avoid occupational accidents and errors in inventory management. Using a checklist, warehouse workers ensure that all warehouse safety checks are performed to protect both the products themselves and their own safety.



In this article we talk about the following topics:


1. Reasons to work with a warehouse safety checklist

Reasons to work with a warehouse safety checklist


Warehouse safety is of vital importance, not only for the stability of the business but also to protect the occupational health of the workers. In a warehouse, a large number of items are stored that can be dangerous and may include the handling of heavy machinery. When you work with a checklist for warehouse safety, you establish a safety protocol that will have not only positive results in the short term but also in the long term: more safety, greater control and compliance with current regulations.



Risks for warehouse safety and how to solve them


If warehouse security has never been reviewed, it may seem a priori a very tedious task. However, below you can find the most common hazards and how to fix them according to OSHA's warehouse guidelines.


  1. Forklift - Provide training on their use to workers, check the condition of the machines and make sure that the goods are placed properly.

  2. Hazard Communication - Chemical burns are possible if hazardous materials are spilled. It informs employees about the different hazards and implements a control sheet for the handling of hazardous materials as well as an action plan in case of an accident.

  3. Loading stations - Prohibits smoking in any part of the warehouse or its surroundings, checks the ventilation system and the PPE required to ensure the safety of workers.

  4. Ergonomic problems - It tries to replace manual work with machinery that allows for the transport of materials, trains employees in proper practices for handling loads and ensures that the floor and passage areas are free of obstacles at all times.

  5. Material storage - Stack materials safely and rigidly to prevent falls, position the heaviest products on the medium and low shelves; make sure workers only carry one load on each trip.
