Warehouse Risk Assessments, Inspections and Audits

Keeping track of how well your warehouse processes and machinery are running is so important to ensure health and safety.  A warehouse and equipment inspection check is a good way to document how your warehouse handles equipment and situations safely. Employers have a legal obligation to protect their Health and Safety and that of their workforce.

Warehousing and storage can cover a wide range of activities that can result in various hazards and risks. Effective health and safety management involves you, the employer, looking at the risks that arise in the workplace and then putting sensible health and safety measures in place to control them. By doing this you can protect your most valuable asset, your employees, as well as members of the public from harm.

With all accidents, injuries and ill-health being reported to the health and safety enforcing authorities under the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995 (RIDDOR).
