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.
Ribbed wooden decking is common in many public and domestic gardens. However, it does not provide slip prevention as once the decking has been exposed to the elements, particularly without regular cleaning, the moss and mildew build-up will cause the surface to become extremely slippery. This application note from Heskins addresses the question of how to prevent slippery decking.
The argument over the pros and cons of whether or not to install heated water safety showers has possibly run its course with the ANSI.Z358.1-2009 standard now recommending 15 minutes of tepid water drench time for all emergency showers. In this technical article, Janet Dickinson, operations manager at Showers and Eyebaths Services, looks at what emergency safety showers are available that meet current standards.
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 has launched a website that it says provides a comprehensive window into the world of emergency tank and portable showers used globally by oil, gas, chemical and utility companies.
The trace-heated, mains-fed GFSF emergency shower range from Showers and Eyebaths Services is manufactured completely from GRP and 316 stainless steel with ABS internal pipework; all highly effective in resisting corrosion to guarantee superior strength and long life for installation in any environment down to -20°C.
