Warehouse Organizational Mistakes to Avoid

By Don Amato, Vice President of Sales for Chicago Tag & Label,

Improving safety standards in the workplace means cutting down on unexpected events. When items aren’t properly handled, workers’ routines can be disrupted, and accidents become much more likely. This is especially true in a warehouse, where organization and efficiency are key to employee health.

Perhaps the biggest reason for poor conditions is mishandling storage. Even if managers believe they have a well-ordered facility, make sure everything adheres to the Department of Labor standards. Proper upkeep should always be desired when operating in a warehouse.

Another mistake that often leads to further problems is neglecting staff development. When employees don’t fully understand each safety measure and the proper procedures within the warehouse, they are more likely to accidently engage in unsafe behavior that puts others at risk.

Many managers also fail to utilize automation that can improve efficiency and accuracy in warehouse operations. By removing the potential for human error from certain procedures, the chances that accidents or inefficiencies will happen are reduced. Of course, keeping facilities clean is another key element to maintaining a safe workplace.

Having clear systematic guidelines for employees to follow can keep order and help remove unexpected variables that could lead to potential damage. For more warehouse organization tips, make sure to check out the accompanying infographic below.
