Warehouses are known for being extremely hazardous sites and there are many risks and dangers that businesses within this sector must put precautions in place for to protect their workers.
Many warehousing companies must go to great lengths to ensure the safety of their employees and to satisfy the expectations of the HSE who could conduct a spot check at any time.
Some of the most common risks that businesses within this sector face include manual handling, falling objects, vehicles in and around the warehouse, work at height and hazardous substances – all of which require the management of a competent health and safety professional.
Instead of trying to juggle the pressure of managing all aspects of health and safety alone whilst running a successful warehousing company, your best option might be to outsource support with health and safety to a team of experts.
