Health and Safety in Removals, Warehousing and Logistics

Mar 1, 2015

Warehousing and road haulage industries are accountable for thousands of health and safety incidents each year. Many of these incidents are major injuries such as fractures and broken bones. Other accidents in the sector include from slips and trips; contact with workplace vehicles, trucks and vans; manual handling related injuries; falls such as from ladders and steps but also from the back of HGV’s; and falling object strike when retrieving/handling stored stock.

Effective health and safety management for removals, warehousing and logistics involves looking at the risks that arise from your warehouse and logistics activities and then putting sensible health and safety measures in place to suitably control them.
