National Safety Month Blog

Each year, June is designated as National Safety Month®, an observation of safety and injury prevention across all industries in the United States. Administered by the National Safety Council (NSC), the month is a reminder to examine processes and procedures within your organization.

This year, the NSC is focusing on four topics throughout the month, putting a spotlight on mental health, ergonomics, building a safety culture, and driving. Through their website and social media, they will also produce materials including educational articles, infographics, videos, and more, along with posting free collateral on their website.

Storage Solutions will also be participating with a focus on safety in warehouses and distribution centers. That increased awareness of safety products and procedures will include both for your workers, but for your equipment too.

We will also feature information on products and services offered through our partners that serve to increase safety by reducing opportunities for accidents and injuries within a warehouse setting. Some of the products and features will also help adjust to a post-COVID-19 working environment.

As you continue to read and interact with stories this month, we encourage you to adopt a “safety-first” mindset throughout the year. Whether you need safety supply or service, we are here to help you make your facility not only move product as quickly as possible, but as safely too.

The final time-lapse video for our project in Dallas is live!  This video chronicles the installation of 598 pallet rack bays, 810 single-level rack bins, and 300′ of guardrail in a 160,000 sq. ft. facility.

 

It’s amazing what you can do with an open space and a skilled installation crew! If you’re looking for someone to design, install and buy back your old equipment, contact us! We’d love your feedback on this project and the Project Spotlight Series in general, so be sure to let us know what you think in the comments section!

We are excited to introduce our first guest blogger, Kelly Kamlager, with Wildeck!  We are always looking to bring fresh and informative content to our blog, so our eyes and ears are always open for new writers and posts!  Without further delay…

Storage Solutions has asked that Wildeck prepare a guest post for their blog regarding warehouse safety.

Where to start with warehouse safety? That is a big topic. So I started where I always do, with a quick Google search for “warehouse safety.” Quality information popped up from OSHA, HSE, several .gov sites, and many major industry publications. Really, there is endless documented information valuating the importance of site safety.

Pallet Rack ProtectorsSo with the amount of information available, solutions from suppliers like Storage Solutions, and quality products from manufacturers such as Wildeck, why is the fatal injury rate for the warehousing industry higher than the national average for all industries?

If you are an existing or future customer of Storage Solutions, many of the most common OSHA citation areas are in your facility. Are you doing all you can to keep your operations productive, safe, and citation free?

Make sure that your facility is a safe environment. Protect your people, your product, your equipment and your bottom line. Wildeck has prepared a Facility Site Survey for Storage Solutions to conduct a walkthrough of your facility.  Storage Solutions professionals are able to talk you about your concerns and assess the safety protection for personnel, equipment, and facility infrastructure. It could be beneficial to have an extra set of eyes examine your facility for safety concerns before OSHA brings in their extra set of eyes!

Contact Storage Solutions to talk with a material handling professional and have a conversation about your facility and what efforts will have a positive impact at your facility.
