Why Have A Safety Inspection Completed?
Making sure that your warehouse or facility is safe is not only beneficial to your employees and to customers, it’s also the law. The Ministry of Labour requires employers to take certain steps in ensuring the health and safety of their workers.
Getting a safety inspection done addresses potential hazards in the workplace, and finds solutions in order to eliminate them.
Safety Compliance Solutions
Warehouses and manufacturing facilities can pose serious hazards to both employees and especially to visitors who are not familiar with the building. With equipment such as forklifts, docks, transports trucks, and more, the chances of injury are exponentially increased. Each year many workers are harmed at work due to lack of safety training or accident prevention. There are a couple of simple yet effect ways to decrease the risk of injury at your workspace.
Clear Signage is one way to reduce accidents from occurring. Signs act as a warning for forklift & high-traffic areas, slippery floors, electrical equipment, or display how to properly use equipment. There are many options available that can be tailored to suit the needs of your business. Signs act as a way of universal communication as you don’t have to speak the same language to recognize a stop sign, a warning sign, etc.
Railings are a great addition to keep your workers and customers safely within a specific safe area, and around walkways. Railings can prevent people from falling from heights, and away from dangerous equipment.
Automated equipment procedures are another way to help ensure safety in the workplace. This reduces human intervention in dangerous work environments, for example proper use of forklifts to lift and transfer heavy equipment, training on the sequence of operation for loading docks and related equipment. Knowing, training and documenting the proper procedures for operating automated equipment can keep workplace injuries to a minimal.
