Warehouse Safety Tips | Episode 76 | Shutdown Mentality

Shutdown Mentality

On today’s Podcast,  we’ll be covering having a Shutdown Mentality – 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!

If you’ve ever worked in a factory – you’ve probably experienced a Summer and/or Holiday (Usually Thanksgiving or Christmas) Shutdown.
These shutdowns usually occur during slower times of the year – and are usually only staffed by maintenance and volunteers.  The overall idea is to tackle maintenance, cleaning, and/or changeovers without the entire staff and operation being present.
However – working in a warehouse, you know shutdowns aren’t always an option.  Especially if you work in a distribution setting where there’s a hive-like hustle and bustle 24/7/365.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t adopt a Shutdown Mentality.
If you follow a 5S/6S (With Safety Included) Methodology at your location – you’re pretty much already doing it.
In the simplest of terms – it’s the organization, cleanliness, and a continued quest of making things better.
Some tasks – such as putting down new tape and/or the above-mentioned changeover or maintenance of equipment, still might require temporarily limiting access to a certain area.
But if you keep a Shutdown Mentality – it’s likely you’ll create a workplace that’s always top-notch.

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.
