Warehouses are notorious for their lack of protection from the weather and it's elements. Because of it's simple design, when it's hot outside, it's hot inside your warehouse. Likewise, when it's cold outside, it's cold inside. This is especially true and is even escalated when it comes time to load up cargo. Your warehouse cargo doors are constantly being opened and closed, and as a result, weather and the elements bring an added level of danger and complications to warehouse safety and efficiency. Not to mention, your employees run the risk of getting sick from the temperature changes or slipping on winter rain or snow that might enter your warehouse.
There are several steps you can take to keep cold weather out of your warehouse that minimize the associated risks.
- Prepare your equipment with thermal insulating material.
- Educate your employees with proper work attire and practices
- Pace yourselves with necessary breaks within heated areas of your workplace.
These simple steps will go a long way in warehouse safety and efficiency this winter season. For more tips to keep cold weather out of your warehouse this winter season, do not hesitate to contact our team at T.W. Hicks, Inc.!
