February 2019 Monthly Warehouse Safety Calendar

February 1, 2019



Warehouses are statistically one of the most dangerous places to work, and the added tasks of operating heavy machinery and transporting large objects do not make it safer. In 2017, there were approximately 209,000 non-fatal occupational injuries in the transportation and warehousing industry in the private sector according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor. The even bigger number is the days away from work that still costs company's money when the employee isn't present. In 2017 alone, there were over 20,000 days away from work related to injuries by warehouse workers.

Warehouse injuries are extremely expensive, and needless to say because of this, warehouse safety is extremely important. The even bigger reason to focus on safety is the well-being of your employees - they need to come first. There are many things you can do to avoid workplace accidents and to maintain a safe workplace for your employees and the environment. It is important to establish a proper safety protocol, conduct regular safety training, follow long-term and short-term housekeeping procedures, and have the proper safety products and equipment.

Please use this monthly safety calendar to go over topics with your employees that will allow your managers to establish proper warehouse safety protocol and conduct regular daily and monthly warehouse safety training schedules.

Please use our monthly warehouse safety calendar below as a guide for your safety meetings.
