S3 Ep143: Warehouse Safety Tips | Episode 143 | Safety Culture

Safety Culture

In today's podcast, we'll talk about creating a safety culture.

So stay tuned.

You can find the show notes to each episode, links to the information mentioned on the podcast, the social media platforms we're on, and anything else related to the podcast at WarehouseSafetyTips.com.

If you're a seasoned Podcast Listener, this podcast will be different from most you listen to.  It's based around exactly what the name implies - Warehouse Safety Tips.  And since the people in that industry are busy - we know time is money, so each episode will be as short and to the point as possible.

And now that all that is out of the way - let's get to the Podcast!

Safety Culture

Have you ever heard the term 'Culture'?

As it pertains to your facility - it's the behaviors and procedures observed regularly (Or the 'norm').  

The late Tony Hsieh - Founder of the shoe company Zappos - knew culture inside and out.  So much so - Zappos would publish an annual Culture Book and make it available to the public.  Tony and the Zappos Management would give a bonus to people that didn't like their job (And/or do it within their culture) to leave.  In addition - they'd help that person find a new job that did suit them.  Imagine striving for that sort of culture in your workplace!

How do you look at Safety?  Do you view it as something you must do when management is looking - or as a culture?  Hopefully, it's the latter!

When you view safety as a culture, you take pride in it, seek to improve it, and know your facility doesn't operate correctly without it.

An engaged Safety Culture will improve quality, productivity, profits, and make your staff safer.  What more can you ask for?

We look forward to seeing you next week for another Warehouse Safety Tips.

Until then, have a great week and STAY SAFE!

Before moving on - here's a word from one of our sponsors.

If you've ever been to or worked in a warehouse - you know just how important safety is to management and staff.  It's almost impossible to go 10 steps without seeing Safety Tape, Angles, Signs, and/or products.

Full-Time Safety

In today's podcast, we'll talk about making safety a full-time job.

So stay tuned.

You can find the show notes to each episode, links to the information mentioned on the podcast, the social media platforms we're on, and anything else related to the podcast at WarehouseSafetyTips.com.

If you're a seasoned Podcast Listener, this podcast will be different from most you listen to.  It's based around exactly what the name implies - Warehouse Safety Tips.  And since the people in that industry are busy - we know time is money, so each episode will be as short and to the point as possible.

And now that all that is out of the way - let's get to the Podcast!

Full-Time Safety

How safe and pleasing is it to have a full tank of gas?  You KNOW there's no way you will run out anytime soon.

Same thing with a full-time job.  It gives you comfort in knowing you're earning at full capacity.

Most things are just better when done at one hundred percent.

And when it comes to safety - this couldn't be more true.  Regardless of why you'd do it - it's never OK to operate at anything less than one hundred percent.  Those moments when you remove your safety glasses because they're foggy, take off your hard hat because it's hot, or remove your harness because it's uncomfortable - is when disaster has the potential to strike.  And if you listen to people that have been lucky enough to recall an accident - they almost always have the same story.  "I've done that (whatever it was that assisted the accident) a hundred times before - and nothing happened."  

Attribute safety to that of a relationship you have.  If you don't think there's a correlation - tell your significant other that you're ninety-nine percent faithful to them, and you'll see just how important one percent can be! 

We look forward to seeing you next week for another Warehouse Safety Tips.

Until then, have a great week and STAY SAFE!

S3 Ep141: Warehouse Safety Tips | Episode 141 | Avoiding Slips And Falls

Avoiding Slips And Falls

In today's podcast, we'll talk about protecting your facility from slips and falls.

So stay tuned.

You can find the show notes to each episode, links to the information mentioned on the podcast, the social media platforms we're on, and anything else related to the podcast at WarehouseSafetyTips.com.

If you're a seasoned Podcast Listener, this podcast will be different from most you listen to.  It's based around exactly what the name implies - Warehouse Safety Tips.  And since the people in that industry are busy - we know time is money, so each episode will be as short and to the point as possible.

And now that all that is out of the way - let's get to the Podcast!

Avoiding Slips And Falls

Have you ever heard the Chinese Proverb, “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”? It means that if you want success and growth in the future, the best time to act is now.

So how does it apply to safety and our message for today?

Although we're not even done with Summer yet (In the United States), Fall and Winter are right around the corner.  And with those seasons come wet leaves, ice, snow, and all sorts of slick elements not usually present.

Add the usual spills and leaks from machines/vehicles in the workplace to the mix - and you have all sorts of potentially hazardous conditions.

Slips and falls account for hundreds of fatalities, THOUSANDS of missed days, and OSHA Violations.

As with most unsafe situations in the workplace – most of these situations could have been avoided.

Here are just a few ways you can help prevent slips from happening - and get ahead of potential situations.

- Encourage staff to wipe off and stamp their feet before entering your facility during rainy or snowy days.
- Make sure you have anti-slip tape, gritty surfaces, and mats in problem areas.
- Repair machines/vehicles that leak.  And if you can't stop leaks - contain them with proper spill containment products.
- Encourage staff to alert maintenance as soon as a wet area is discovered.
- Regularly mop wet areas and put out signs/cones indicating the situation.
- Make sure staff wears slip-resistant footwear wherever applicable.

These are just a few tips to make you aware - but if followed, should be a great start toward avoiding slips and falls at your facility.

We look forward to seeing you next week for another Warehouse Safety Tips.

Until then, have a great week and STAY SAFE!

Safety Walkthrough

In today's podcast, we'll talk about doing a Safety Walkthrough.

So stay tuned.

You can find the show notes to each episode, links to the information mentioned on the podcast, the social media platforms we're on, and anything else related to the podcast at WarehouseSafetyTips.com.

If you're a seasoned Podcast Listener, this podcast will be different from most you listen to.  It's based around exactly what the name implies - Warehouse Safety Tips.  And since the people in that industry are busy - we know time is money, so each episode will be as short and to the point as possible.

And now that all that is out of the way - let's get to the Podcast!

Safety Walkthrough

The Cambridge Dictionary defines a 'walkthrough' as "the act of doing something or checking something in order to find possible problems."

Is there someone or a team at your facility that does Safety Walkthroughs?

The definition above covers "possible problems," but a Safety Walkthrough should also look for things that are being done right and ways to improve things.  

If you've implemented and are engaged in a 5S Methodology at your facility, you're already doing this.  If you aren't - then start A.S.A.P.!

Improved efficiency, productivity, and safety increase profits and the chances of your employees working effectively and going home safe at the end of the day.  And that's precisely what we're here to help happen!

We look forward to seeing you next week for another Warehouse Safety Tips.

Until then, have a great week and STAY SAFE!

Forklift Training

So stay tuned.

You can find the show notes to each episode, links to the information mentioned on the podcast, the social media platforms we're on, and anything else related to the podcast at WarehouseSafetyTips.com.

And now that all that is out of the way - let's get to the Podcast!

Forklift Training

Have you ever been to a facility where there are permanent marks in the concrete, paint has been scraped away, or tape has been ripped up due to improper forklift traffic?  This situation comes from dragging or having forks in the wrong position - and it's completely avoidable.  

How?  Training!

But it's not just about the proper use of the forks.  It goes much deeper than that.  But since we always try to keep things short and high-level - here are a few things to consider when it comes to Forklift Training and Safety.

  • Before even getting on a forklift - be sure you've been trained, or OSHA Certified to do so.
  • Perform a check at the beginning of each shift to assure the forklifts you're operating are in good working order with an inspection and general maintenance check.
  • Know ALL the rules and regulations of your facility.
  • Be aware of the load carrying, lifting, and storage rules.
  • Wear and utilize all the safety equipment determined by your facility.
  • Know your surroundings at all times - such as walls, poles, doorways, pipes, racks, other forklifts, and people.
  • Obey Speed Limits.
  • Watch for changing floor conditions due to spills or weather.
  • Keep travel areas clear of all debris.
Pay attention and keep safety top of mind; these tips will be a great start towards staying safe while operating a forklift.
