Buying Guide: Office and Warehouse Health and Safety

Owning a warehouse or office comes with a specific set of rules to follow. It's essential to create a safe and comfortable environment for your employees while complying with all necessary health and safety laws.

If you are an employee, it is equally crucial for you to understand if your work environment is safe.

This buying guide will take you through the equipment you need to invest in and where to find it. Never underestimate the importance of warehouse and office safety.

Warehouse Safety Equipment

Before allowing your team to enter the warehouse, you must check if the equipment meets safety standards.

It is best to buy personal protective equipment, such as safety vests, protective glasses and gloves, in bulk. Keep in mind that different jobs require particular types of warehouse safety equipment. For example, workers operating in a more exposed environment would need a different class of high visibility vests compared to those working in a calmer area. We recommend having a variety available to increase the efficiency of work and avoid unnecessary disruptions.

Clothing and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Before starting a job in a warehouse, it's best to inquire about the type of clothes you are expected to wear. Some require you to wear a uniform, while others can be done in regular loose-fitting clothes made of durable materials.

It is a boss' job to make sure that rules and warehouse security are being followed. Ensure any newly hired staff understand the safety requirements of their role.

Personal protective equipment includes protective eyewear, gloves, clothing, respiratory equipment and more. It is a good idea to have a variety of equipment in common sizes available on hand. Ordering in bulk will help!

You must also have first aid equipment available to deal with emergencies that may happen.

Office safety

An office environment is certainly less prone to accidents than a warehouse. It's still equally important to create a safe place for your employees to work.

Make sure that all furniture is placed in appropriate places. Following are a few tips to ensure your office safety.

  • Replace broken pieces immediately
  • Anything hazardous must be marked
  • Put up safety signs where necessary

Taking all these preventive measures mean dealing with fewer emergencies.

First Aid kits should be kept at various accessible spots. Check routinely if anything needs to be replaced, such as band-aids and expired medicine.
