Warehouse Safety: Most Common OSHA Violations
OSHA violations can result in significant fines and lead to injury, lost productivity and increased costs associated with injury. Keep an eye out for these common violations.
Absence of Systematic Safety Reviews
How often do you perform and document a review of your facility and potential hazards? A regular, systematic review of your facility ensures you are doing all you can do to keep employees safe, reduce accidents and improve results in your facility at the same time.
Non-Functioning Safety Devices
Safety devices, such as photo eyes, reversing edges, audible warning devices and other warehouse safety solutions are just a few of the items that should be in working order at all times. Safety devices should be included in your regular systematic review.
Racking Not Labeled
Racking needs to be labeled to ensure the proper products are being deposited there and that the loads deposited do not exceed the rated capacity of the racking.
