Social Distancing Reminders

On today's Warehouse Safety Tips Wednesday, we'll be covering Social Distancing Reminders - so stay tuned.

Welcome to Warehouse Safety Tips!

You can find the show notes to each episode, links to the information mentioned on the podcast, the social media platforms we're on, and anything else related to the podcast at WarehouseSafetyTips.com.

If you're a seasoned Podcast Listener - this podcast is going to be different from most you listen to.  It's based around exactly what the name implies - Warehouse Safety Tips.  And since the people in that industry are busy - we know time is money, so each episode will be as short and to the point as possible.

And now that all that is out of the way - let's get to the Podcast!

On today's Podcast - we're going to be revisiting Social Distancing Reminders.

When the COVID Lock downs were initially announced - we all "THOUGHT" it was going to be a short time period.

Those couple of weeks extended.  

Then not only did they extend, but the concerns heightened.

Eventually things started to level out a bit.

But now it appears we're in yet another round.

We don't know how long this round will last - and/or if it'll EVER stop.

So here are some tips to get your facility on its way to being successfully Socially Distanced.

  • To get started - know what regulations you’re required to follow - and what you want implemented. (This may vary from facility to facility)
  • Walk your facility and detail how and where you need to implement the wants and regulations of your Social Distancing Plans.  This may include - but is by no means limited to the following:
    • Assure staff are distanced by 6-foot work areas.
    • Staff are wearing masks and/or gloves wherever applicable.
    • Hygiene Procedures such as frequent hand washing, keeping fingers out of eyes and mouth, and covering your mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing is being followed.
    • Install partitions between work areas.
    • Implement one-way traffic flows.
    • Post Social Distancing Safety Signs and Floor Markings.
    • Modify your picking strategy.
    • Integrate tool sanitation stations.
    • Create "touch free" order consolidation.
    • Implement zero-interaction delivery.
    • Consider staggering shifts.
    • Schedule breaks strategically.

We hope these tips assist in helping you, your facility, and your families to be safe!

Before moving on - here's a word from one of our sponsors.
