Health and safety is a high priority in any workplace. Warehouses, when properly managed, are safe working environments; there are many potential threats, but all are avoidable. Warehouse health and safety standards are well established and designed primarily to avoid accidents and injury and secondly to minimise the effects should anything go wrong. Listed below are some key considerations to ensure you get through the day accident free.
Over the last 2 months, we have had our ‘A’ Shed converted from a standard warehouse unit into a Food Standard Warehouse.
This has meant using a variety of professional tradesmen to build new walls, seal and insulate the ceiling, shot blast the floor, clean and paint all walls and steelwork structures and seal the floor with a high grade floor sealant.
