Warehouse Safety Tips | Episode 66 | Are You Listening?

Are You Listening?

On today’s Podcast, we’ll be covering listening at work – so stay tuned.

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!

Today’s message is a very simple one.
Don’t be caught not paying attention on the job!  Specifically – not listening.
Now you might think we’re saying that on the behalf of and/or to appease management.  Keeping management happy IS important – but your safety is even more important.
So what are a few areas you can focus on?
  • Briefings – If your facility is like others – from the moment you arrive, you’re presented with briefings from the previous shifts.  Make sure you pay attention to them.
  • Announcements – Much like briefings – announcements can come in the form of person to person, via radio, and/or address systems.  Pay close attention because they could contain everything from lights being left on in the parking lot to potentially hazardous weather approaching (And everything in-between).
  • Machinery – Whether it’s a specific sound a machine makes to alert you of something or something that sounds out of the ordinary – be sure to listen to machinery you’re working with.
  • Alarms – This can be something as simple as a machine you’re working on completing its task or as extreme as a fire and/or tornado approaching.
  • Vehicles – Of all the sounds you’ll likely encounter at your facility – this is one of the most important ones to pay attention to.  There’s a reason lift trucks have alerts when backing up and/or horns are sounded while driving.  It’s to alert you that you need to pay extreme attention.  And much like machinery – if you’re operating a vehicle, make sure you’re listening to it as well.  Doing so could alert you to low fuel/battery life and/or engine trouble.
  • Fellow Staff – Throughout your shift, it’s likely fellow staff will provide you with info.  Make sure you pay attention to what they tell you.
  • Your Inner Monolog – Although it’s not an actual sound you’ll hear with your ears – it’s one you should be very aware of.  If something is nagging you and/or just doesn’t appear to be right – be sure to listen to your gut.
As with most of our tips – this was just a high-level look at a few of the things you should be paying attention to.
Be a better listener – and you’ll increase your chances of staying safer at work exponentially.

Before moving on – here’s a word from one of our sponsors.
