In-house and off-site safety courses are comprehensive and can be customized to your particular needs. DVDs on safety procedures and recognizing potentially dangerous situations should be viewed regularly.

Workers in high vehicle traffic areas should wear high-visibility reflective gear and if necessary, battery-powered lights. High-visibility vests should also be stocked in areas where workers may need to be led out of a building in low- or no-visibility situations.

3. Cleanup Equipment


In areas where liquid, dust, or other material spills are possible, containment equipment and wet and dry vacuums should be nearby for fast cleanup before slips and falls can occur. The equipment should be easy to access, easy to use, and maintained frequently.

2. Fire Extinguishers

Local fire codes dictate the minimum number of fire extinguishers required by law for a building, but more should be ready and accessible in workplaces where fire is a possible hazard. Fireproof blankets and flame-resistant clothing can also protect workers in fire emergencies until they can escape or the fire department arrives.

Warehouse workers required to perform heavy lifting are usually trained in the use of safety belts for protection against back strain, but these belts should also be made available wherever heavy boxes, office equipment, or even water cooler bottles are lifted or moved by workers. Wrist braces and knee pads are protective and make it easier to get down and look for things that roll under desks and cabinets.
