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.
According to Showers and Eyebaths Services, it is a good idea during milder conditions to conduct an annual service, inspection and compliance assessment for every on-site safety shower, eyewash station and — just as importantly — supply pipe. Ensuring that your emergency showers and eyebaths are fit for purpose and ready to withstand the winter freeze is essential to avoid further problems that may occur when the temperature drops.
Showers & Eyebaths Services is offering water chillers for its emergency tank showers. Suitable for Zone 1 and 2 flameproof areas (Atex) and non-flameproof areas, these chillers are said to be essential where ambient and incoming water temperatures are more than 40°C. The units are suitable for environments characterised by extreme heat, with several already destined for use in the Middle East.
