S3 Ep127: Warehouse Safety Tips | Episode 127 | Everything In Its Place

Everything In Its Place

On today's podcast - we're going to talk about keeping everything in its place.

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 is going to 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!

Everything In Its Place

I've always been envious of garages and workshops with outlines or labels on the wall for every tool or piece of equipment.  This process allows you to save time looking for items - because they're always in the same place.  And you can immediately tell when something is missing.  This makes day-to-day operations easier - and will help with overall inventory.

In a garage or workshop, you know if something is missing, if it wasn't you that was using it, then it had to be someone in your immediate circle.  At a facility - that circle is probably much larger.  So to streamline the process - you should either put one person in charge of checking items out or have some sort of camera monitoring.

This process is the second step of The 5S Methodology - Straighten or Set In Order (Japanese Version - Seiton).  It's sometimes simplified as, "A place for everything and everything in its place."

And it doesn't have to be limited to tools and equipment.  You can print identifying labels for everything at your facility - and cover them with Clear Heavy-Duty Label Protectors.  These labels can be on the floor, walls, and actual items.  And since they're heavy-duty - they're durable, adaptable, convenient, and efficient for warehouses, factories, and most facilities.

Anything you can do to streamline production is a win - and this process does that.

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 both management and staff.  It's almost impossible to go 10 steps without seeing Safety Tape, Angles, Signs, and/or products. 

These items show us how to be safe and avoid danger in the workplace.  And if you're looking for the best products to make this happen - look no further than Mighty Line!

Spill Safety And Procedures

On today's podcast - we're going to talk about Spill Safety and procedures.

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!

Spill Safety And Procedures

If you work at a facility long enough - you're going to encounter one or several of the following situations.

  • Leaks from ceilings 
  • Machinery creating condensation or leaking fluids.
  • Cleaning that needs to be contained.
  • Staff accidents - such as backing into and knocking over a barrel of oil.
And those are just a few of many scenarios you might experience.

What do they all have in common?  They're all spill-related.

So how do you respond to situations like this?

First and foremost - make sure staff, maintenance, and management are all notified of the spill.  If the elements related to the spill are hazardous or present any sort of danger - clear or evacuate the area.

Find where the spill is coming from and if possible, stop it and clean it up with the proper Spill Kit Products.

If it can't be stopped - control it with the proper Spill Kit Products.

Procedures may vary by location - but the above-mentioned steps will be a great start.

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

S3 Ep125: Warehouse Safety Tips | Episode 125 | Looking For Trouble

Looking For Trouble

On today's podcast - we're going to talk about looking for trouble.

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!

Looking For Trouble

On our podcast today - we're going to go against everything you were told growing up.  

All your life - parents, teachers, and friends have been telling you, "Don't go looking for trouble!"  Sometimes they'd end it with, "If you do - you just might find it!"  Of course, they were referencing getting into trouble - such as fighting, drinking or doing drugs, or anything that might be illegal or dangerous.

To stay ahead of issues in factories, warehouses, and anywhere safety practices are put into action - sometimes you NEED to go looking for trouble.  You WANT to find situations where something could potentially happen before it does.

Whether you're following ISO, The 5S Methodology, Lean Manufacturing, Six Sigma, or a combination of them all - eliminating waste, extra movements, and potential issues is paramount.

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

Until then, have a great week and STAY SAFE!

S3 Ep124: Warehouse Safety Tips | Episode 124 | What Are The OSHA Color Codes - Part 3?

What are the OSHA Color Codes - Part 3?

On today's podcast - once again, we're going to be answering the question, "What are the OSHA Color Codes?". 

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 is going to 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!

What are the OSHA Color Codes?

A few episodes ago, we discussed "What are the OSHA Color Codes?"  Once again, if you're not aware of what OSHA is - we covered this a few weeks ago in Episode 115 - " What Does OSHA Stand For?".  It's an acronym that represents the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

As a refresher - the colors we previously covered were yellow for caution, red for danger, blue for specific items, and orange for paying attention.

Today we're going to cover two more of the OSHA Color Codes - green and purple.

If you're a viewer of this podcast, you'll already know this - but we always like to remind you.  We keep things very short and to the point for time purposes.  We provide a general and high-level look at the topics at hand - but almost all of our topics can and should be looked into much deeper.  With that said, here are our next two OSHA Color Codes.

Green is generally reserved for first aid and for items related to safety.

Purple is one that you'll probably see the least.  It indicates the presence of radiation.

For more information on all of OSHA's Color Codes - visit OSHA.gov and search "Color Codes."

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

Until then, have a great week and STAY SAFE!

S3 Ep123: Warehouse Safety Tips | Episode 123 | Do You Reward Safety?

Do You Reward Safety?

On today's podcast - we're going to be answering the question "Do you reward safety?". 

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 is going to 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!

Have you ever read a book or watched a movie where a bunch of puzzle pieces come together and provide a big reveal?  Chances are you have.  Although I've spent a great deal of time in the tech world - in my younger days, I spent a lot of time in factories and warehouses.  Safety and the implementation of it were a huge part of my job.  In addition to safety - I learned about ISO, OSHA, Six Sigma, 5S Methodology, and Lean Manufacturing.  Then today - I found several pictures of my Mom holding money bouquets as prizes for winning Safety Slogan Contests.  In doing so I released I've been around safety a lot longer than I'd thought.  I remember sitting around the kitchen table as a kid and helping her create and pick what we thought would be good submissions.  

This brought me to the question of this podcast, "Do you reward safety?"

Most employees don't want to take their jobs home with them.  But, when there's an incentive - things change.  

Are you doing things at your facility that make your staff feel involved with your safety program?  If so - great!  If not - why?

One of my Mom's winning Safety Messages was, "Where Safety Reigns, There Will Be Gains".  That would be printed on huge banners and hung throughout the facility until it was replaced by the next year's winner.  But can you imagine the pride my Mom must have felt looking up and seeing her winning submission each day?

And how true was that message?  "Where Safety Reigns, There Will Be Gains".  It's a mindset we as safety-minded professionals individuals should embrace!

It doesn't have to be a contest, but find a way to involve and reward your staff for improved safety - and you're going to find there WILL be gains!

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

Until then, have a great week and STAY SAFE!
