Supplying High-Level Safety: Preventing Common Injuries in Warehouse and Distribution Centers

David Bowie probably wasn’t thinking of distribution and warehousing operations when he wrote “Under Pressure,” but his lyrics “These are the days it never rains but it pours” couldn’t have been more spot on for what’s increasingly impacting this sector. Time-driven and task oriented, workers in warehouses and distribution centers are exposed to serious hazards regularly. The recent pandemic and other forces have further increased pressures on production and safety. Injuries in a go-go business can further impact coverage, as turnover increases or where employees work in pain or are chronically fatigued.  

However, many companies have been able to considerably stem this tide while increasing employee retention and elevating their safety culture.

This webinar focuses on strategies they and many other companies have applied:

  • How to internalize Safety – to improve default attention, judgment and actions.
  • Strengthening the Safety Culture/Skills connection enthusiasm/motivation and performance
  • Strategies for simultaneously leading towards global-class Safety and overall productivity
