EVERYONE HAS A ROLE IN MAINTAINING SAFE CONDITIONS: Any employee witnessing a potentially unsafe condition or practice in the warehouse is expected to report the observed condition or practice to a warehouse manager. This gives the management team an opportunity to provide additional training where needed to continue to help maintain a safe working environment. It truly is everyone’s job to maintain a safe workplace.

ALWAYS BE CAUTIOUS IN THE WAREHOUSE: A warehouse is a busy, often noisy and crowded environment with many different roles, job functions and people involved in the process. It is always important to exercise caution whenever traversing the warehouse. Failure to exercise caution can have serious consequences.

It is important that everyone works together and helps insure that safety procedures are in place and being practiced throughout a warehouse environment. Although no environment is ever perfect, by making every effort to follow basic safety tips, everyone can benefit from a positive and productive working environment.

For more on warehouse safety, read Part 1 of this series.

Yes , safety is #1. But OSHA regulations have pushed some American industries to extinction . There must be some acceptable risks ?

IMHO OSHA's main objective is to collect money. They have so many picky regulations that they can find things to write up and fine you for, no matter how safe and compliant you try to be, that you would never think of yourself! The inspectors have to justify their existence and collect fines or they would be out of a job.

OSHA inspectors must be just like EBT workers who show their clients how to get more entitlements just so they can keep their jobs too.
