Why is this course important?
Warehouse operations can present a wide variety of potential hazards to workers.
Health and Safety Executive (HSE) figures show that in 2016-2017, 1.6% of workers were injured in the warehousing and transportation support industries
This warehouse injury rate is over 5 times higher than the average for all other industries. This is because more hazards are present than in most other workplaces.
In warehouses, injuries are often cause by
- slips, trips and falls
- manual handling tasks
- working at height
- vehicles in and around the warehouse
- moving or falling objects
Improper behaviour increases the chance of hazards causing injuries.
- Unsafe use of forklifts.
- Poor stacking of products.
- Failure to use the right personal protective equipment.
- Not dealing with slippery floors immediately.
- Incorrect lifting technique
- Not responding to training
This course provides the knowledge needed to work safely in warehouses, reducing the risk to you and others.
Working in Warehouses
In the UK more than 145,000 people work in over 7,000 warehouses. A warehouse is a commercial building for storage of goods. Warehouses are used by manufacturers, importers, exporters, wholesalers, transport businesses, customs, etc.
They usually have loading docks to load and unload goods from trucks. Sometimes warehouses are designed for the loading and unloading of goods directly from railways, airports or seaports.
They often have cranes and forklifts for moving goods. A warehouse worker’s job tends to vary depending on the specifics of the warehouse and what is stocked or processed there.
Due to the unique combination of vehicular, electrical, slips, trips-and-falls, lifting, repetitive motion, chemical, respiratory and fire hazards found in warehouses, the warehousing industry’s injury rate rises over 5 times the average for all industries combined.
