Trying to save time and money on warehouse safety? You’re doing it wrong. But, this doesn’t mean affordable safety solutions aren’t possible. In a warehouse safety awareness campaign of the same name, “You’re doing it wrong,” we call attention to improper practices.
Why warehouse safety is important to us
Over the past few years, we’ve enjoyed speaking with warehouse managers, safety engineers, and compliance officers about how to keep their palletized storage systems safer. Worker safety is the #1 goal, but of course, keeping product safe is important as well. We started this journey with one objective in mind: Making rack safety simple and affordable. The best solutions often come from collaboration, and that’s how our rack safety products were born.
Prevention is key
One thing we’ve realized over numerous conversations with safety officers is that rack flue space compliance and preventing pallet push-through isn’t implemented until there’s an accident. Or, alternatively, solutions are put in place that are expensive to purchase and even more expensive to install and maintain. With the new Fed-OSHA reporting guidelines that will make accident data more public, prevention is becoming a top priority at facilities nationwide.
More recently, we completed a series of blogs related specifically to warehouse fire protection and prevention. Furthermore, how fire protection and flue space go hand-in-hand. And, there are more ways than you may think to help your facility combat a potential warehouse fire. This includes how rack safety solutions help your existing warehouse sprinkler systems. We also offer some advice on how to choose the right fire protection products for your warehouse.
Follow along with #SafetyMadeSimple
We launched this warehouse safety awareness campaign with a humorous twist. Through these images, we want to encourage facility and safety officers to prevent rack hazards rather than waiting for an accident to occur. We are making safety simple with our warehouse safety solutions. We invite you to join us by sharing these with the hashtag #SafetyMadeSimple.
