A safe, orderly, efficient warehouse is a key to a successful operation. The warehouse plays an essential role in the way goods are sent, received, stored, and circulated throughout the facility. With so much going on and so much to keep track of, a warehouse may also have more potential for accidents than areas with more limited functions. So, it's especially important to pay close attention to safety in the warehouse.

In this training course on Best Practices for Optimizing Warehouse Safety, we're going to review some of the potential warehouse hazards and ways we reduce risks. There are so many areas to cover that we can't cover every single detail on each one. The purpose of this safety course is to get you to look at the warehouse with safety in mind—so that you'll always be alert to the hazards and always do what's necessary to prevent accidents.
