Cleaning warehouse floors can prevent health & safety issues. Simon Collins,of Industrial Floorcare Machines (UK), talks slips, trips and falls
Warehouses through their very nature are high risk locations.
High level racking systems, fork lift trucks moving back and forth, pallets of goods at ground level and at height, and areas where lighting fails to adequately penetrate create poor visibility.
It is therefore extremely important to ensure that suitable precautions are taken to maintain and enhance safety for all building users, and nowhere is this more important than by keeping floors clear of litter and free from dirt and spillages.
Slips, trips and falls remain the most common cause of workplace accidents, accounting for 39% of all major injuries over the last five years (HSE statistics).
"Recent surveys highlight the fact that while slips and trips remain a priority concern for employers, few felt that organisations are fully effective at controlling the slip and trip risk," says Barbara Evans of BeSafe, health and safety consultants.
