One poor decision can bring warehousing operations to a screeching halt. Graphic Products, a global leader in visual communication solutions for compliance and safety, has a new resource to limit supply chain disruption. The Guide to Warehouse Efficiency has helpful solutions for worker safety and lean practices to enhance optimum productivity. Using this resource’s simple checklist, facility managers can determine the best course for operational needs and harness practical solutions.
“It’s up to warehouse managers to stay ahead of the logistics game to remain relevant in the rapid e-commerce market,” said Nicole Noble, a product manager at Graphic Products. “Our new guide provides a benchmark to increase productivity and save costs while accomplishing company goals.”
This new 16-page guide offers warehouse improvement ideas that address common inefficiencies such as work hazards and common injuries. In 2017, warehousing and transportation were among the industry sectors experiencing the largest number of preventable fatal injuries. Falls, machine guarding injuries, and forklift accidents are among the top causes according to OSHA and the Bureau of Labor and Statistics.
“A safety-first culture helps to avoid costly consequences like product or equipment damage, injuries and increased worker’s compensation insurance,” according to supply chain management firm Fidelitone. “Don’t forget about the intangible consequences like the rework or decreased morale resulting from accidents. Make safety a priority for continued operational health.”
Warehouse managers will be able to utilize the guide to mitigate compliance and other information gaps, hazards, and areas for lean improvement. It even provides practical suggestions for warehouse-specific supply needs. Get started by downloading this free resource today.
