It's often said an organized warehouse is a productive warehouse. Even more, an organized warehouse is a safe warehouse. With the fall season in full-swing and production in routine, our team at T.W. Hicks, Inc. in Lake Dallas and San Antonio, Texas are here to provide you and your business with warehouse organization tips to increase productivity and safety within your commercial warehouse!
Believe it or not, slips, trips and falls account for 25% of all injury claims and 95 million lost work days each year according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. For the overall safety and productivity of your commercial warehouse, follow these warehouse organization tips from T.W. Hicks, Inc. in Texas. First, consider automation. Robot automation not only helps improve warehouse productivity but obviously helps save money on employing workers and any accidents that could occur.
Moreover, our team at T.W. Hicks, Inc. recommends you maximize vertical space. This clears up your production floor resulting in safer working conditions and an increased efficiency in your warehouse. Pallet racking is a common way of storing pallet loads in warehouses, manufacturing facilities and even retail stores. Finally, we recommend you create custom workstations specifically tailored to the work at-hand. Doing so will not only increase ergonomic benefits and reduce musculoskeletal disorders such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis, muscles strains and lower back injuries, but will also lead to greater efficiency and productivity in repetitive, manual tasks.
Contact our team at T.W. Hicks, Inc. with any questions you might have on these warehouse organization tips. We look forward to serving you and your company's operations for a more safe and efficient commercial warehouse space!
