Warehouses are home to all sorts of technology and machinery, but their most valuable occupant is also perhaps the most vulnerable: human employees. When it comes to ensuring the safety of warehouse workers, shortcuts aren't an option.
Warehousing has a higher fatal injury rate than the national average across all industries. Employees in this sector work with potentially dangerous equipment and heavy objects every day, so extensive safety measures are paramount. To keep warehouse workers free from harm, safety officers must continually readdress their methods to ensure the efficacy of their critical work.
