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!

CoronavirusAt the time of this Podcast – the world is experiencing something unlike anything most of us have ever experienced before.  This experience is the Coronavirus.
Now you might be thinking – we have viruses and other situations that grip our nation and the world all the time.  But not quite like this.  The closings, ups and downs of the Stock Market, blanketed media coverage, and overall fears and concerns with this one is definitely WAY above average.

So what does a current topic have to do with this Podcast?
The answer comes in the form of a quote by Charles Caleb Colton.  Mr. Colton said, “The true measure of your character is what you do when nobody is watching.”
And it’s this quote that will make or break how easy it is for you to do a certain thing or not.
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.It’s these items that 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!Mighty Line Floor Signs / Floor Markings offer the best industrial products out there!Go to MightyLineTape.com/SafetyTips to request a Sample Pack of their incredible Safety Signs and Floor Markings.

Now back to the Podcast…

In the first part of our Podcast – I said the quote, “The true measure of your character is what you do when nobody is watching.” is very applicable to how you’ll handle things overall.
What I mean by this is – in the case of the before mentioned virus, we’re being told to wash our hands.  They say everything you’ve ever needed to know, you learned in Kindergarten.  If in fact there’s any truth to that  – you probably already know you should be washing your hands on the regular.  But it’s the end of the quote, “…when nobody is watching.” that’ll trip people up.
Again – you might be asking so what does that have to do with this Podcast?
Let’s substitute washing our hands for –
  • ALWAYS stopping at designated Safety Floor Markings, looking for lift trucks, and then proceeding
  • ALWAYS wearing Safety Glasses, Hearing Protection, and Hard Hats
  • NEVER behaving in an unsafe manner around machinery
You may be able to say you almost always do these things around management – but can you say the same thing for “…when nobody is watching.”?
Don’t START obeying rules and regulations because you’re afraid of getting in trouble with management, someone was injured and/or killed, or during a special time – do it EVERY day and ALL the time.
Not because of the above but because you value YOU – and hopefully your fellow staff and facility.
That’s a Safety Culture and “…true measure of character…” that’ll promote safety, organization, and productivity EVERY day!
If you visit WarehouseSafetyTips.com – you’ll find the Show Notes for this episode.
Thank you for listening to Warehouse Safety Tips – and have SAFE day!
