S3 Ep132: Warehouse Safety Tips | Episode 132 | When Safety Fails

When Safety Fails

On today's podcast - we're going to discuss when safety fails.

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!

When Safety Fails

As mentioned on previous podcasts, and on future ones as well - we try to draw our content from real life.  Today is no exception.  As a matter of fact - it's going to launch a multiple-part series.

Our village is having Fiber Optic Cable buried.  The village has marked properties with where they "think" cable is - but even fancy tools can miss a wire or two.  I work at home and Wednesdays are usually one of my busiest days.  Well, today is Wednesday - and today the guys burying Fiber Optic Cable hit our Internet Cable.  That made today start off a little frustrating.  But instead of getting mad, I contacted my clients to let them know of the issue and started thinking of ways to apply this to safety.

Apply the above situation to your facility.  After assuring nobody has been injured and everything is under control - what can you do to best avoid a similar situation happening again?  While it's fresh in your mind - get your maintenance, safety team, staff that's been affected, and management together and discuss steps for the future.  Mistakes aren't fun to deal with - but they are the best teachers!

Next week on Warehouse Safety Tips we'll talk about one of the next steps in the process - double and triple-checking safety.

Until then, have a great week and STAY SAFE!
