Be On The Lookout
On today’s Podcast – we’re going to be covering Safety Inspections. So stay tuned…
Welcome to Warehouse Safety Tips!
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!
The title of our Podcast today is “Be On The Lookout”.
It’s meant to be related to Safety Inspections – but in a narrow and broad way.
What I mean by that is this. Narrowly – Safety Inspections are related to assuring machines, equipment, and processes are all being maintained and followed.
But it goes way beyond that to a much broader scale.
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 Tape is the strongest floor tape on the market and has a beveled edge that increases durability for industrial brush scrubbers, forklifts, and heavy industrial wheel traffic.
Easy installation and removal thanks to Mighty Line’s peel and stick backing. You can apply and reapply it during installation – and it leaves no sticky residue should you need to remove it. This allows the ability to change workflow areas quickly and easily – and not have the downtime associated with painting or using floor markings that leave behind a mess when you remove them.
Mighty Line Tape is 7 times thicker than the average Safety Floor Tape.

Now back to the Podcast…
When deciding on what to “Be On The Lookout” for checklist – be sure to include EVERYTHING in your facility.
This includes but isn’t limited to –
Your entire grounds (What your facility resides on)
The security around the outside of your facility
The security within your facility
Every marking you have on your grounds (Inside and Outside) that instruct people what to do, where to go, and how to do something
All the doors and docks areas
All the machinery, equipment, tools, and supplies
All the various rooms and offices surrounding your warehouse or production area (If applicable)
All the First Aid and Emergency Equipment
All the procedures and documentation related to each of them
Technology – and its related security and backup procedures
In case of scenarios – such as fire, weather, security, injuries, and other situations
Packaging and Shipping Procedures
And many more…
Once you know everything you want to “Be On The Lookout” for – you need to create a roster of who’s responsible for maintaining each area within the entire Inspection/Maintenance Team.
Many of the individuals will be part of more than one area. For example – Security Guards may need to be part of several (If not all) teams, since they’re responsible for enforcing rules and protecting the facility.
Part of the “Be On The Lookout” mentality is 6S Methodology related. If you’re constantly looking for what’s currently in place – and finding ways to improve upon it, then you’re on your way to having your facility running as smooth and safe as possible.
