Warehouse Safety Hazards and Solutions Guide
Graphic Products has released the free 'Warehouse Safety Hazards and Solutions Guide', which lists common warehouse safety hazards and presents safety solutions and checklists.
The 'Warehouse Safety Hazards and Solutions Guide' lists 10 OSHA standards for which warehousing establishments are most frequently cited.
It then lists specific hazards presented to warehouse workers, including unsafe use of forklifts, improper stacking of products, failure to use personal protective equipment, failure to follow proper lockout/tag-out procedures and repetitive motion injuries.
Safety solutions are presented for each of the following hazards: forklifts; docks; conveyors; materials storage; manual lifting/handling; charging stations; poor ergonomics; general hazards; and materials handling.
RUD offers a range of lifting and lashing products that includes both welded and threaded types, covering a working load capacity range from 0.6 to 200 tonnes.
This leaflet from Rud focuses on iSock and shoe chain personal safety products. They offer excellent footing and traction on slippery and icy surfaces.

In order to handle the complexities of contamination on an operative’s clothing and skin, there is an argument to suggest that just the recommended ANSI Z358.1 standard of 15 minutes of dowsing time may, in many cases, not be long enough. This article discusses the benefits of bespoke units, which guarantee 30 minutes of tepid water, notwithstanding the extreme climatic conditions in which safety showers are sited.
