health and safety in the warehouse

How warehouse health and safety can benefit your business

Part of our in-house strategy for looking after our customers is looking after ourselves. That’s why at John K Philips we take warehouse health and safety incredibly seriously, offering our entire team regular training in everything they require to get the job done.

For over 40 years we’ve been supplying transport and distribution solutions to businesses both big and small, and it’s largely thanks to our thorough training that we’ve become a go-to distribution company in the North West.

But how do we make warehouse health and safety work for our business?

Why is warehouse health and safety important?

Warehouses are high-risk working environments and, to effectively handle our clients’ goods, we must first be equipped with the necessary tools, skills and knowledge to get the job done safely.

Warehouse accidents are detrimental to staff health and wellbeing, which is why we ensure all measures and legislation are followed by our entire team.

How John K Philips use warehouse healthy and safety to deliver a better client service

First and foremost, health and safety in the warehouse is important for our team, however, it also has a positive knock-on effect on the clients who use our services too.

Through regular hands-on training and the opportunities for the team to expand their knowledge, we have been able to offer a solid and reputable storage service for many years now.

Up to date moving and handling

Moving and handling is something we do every day in our St. Helens warehouse, but knowing the correct way of doing so is imperative to staff safety. Learning the best practice way of lifting, carrying and laying goods is important not just for staff safety, it also ensures goods are being handled appropriately to avoid damage.

For you, it means you have the peace of mind that at John K Philips, your goods are being handled with care and consideration, from start to finish.

Appropriate use of warehouse vehicles

Our warehouse storage in St. Helens offers a range of services, including:

  • Racked storage
  • Bulk storage
  • Order picking
  • Re-packing
  • Pallet wrapping
  • Covered loading and unloading
  • Container loading and unloading
  • Palletised and non-palletised stock
  • Production of delivery paperwork

In order to keep up with the demand associated with these services, the use of specialist warehouse vehicles and equipment is necessary. However, due to the risk of vehicle use in the warehouse environment, constant and up to date training is necessary to keep all staff and pedestrians safe.

Through proper and appropriate training, we are better able to offer you the most thorough and secure storage solutions.
