It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

On today's Warehouse Safety Tips Wednesday, we'll be covering why "It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year" - 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!

Yes, the holidays are almost upon us.

And yes, it's a great holiday song.

But the reason why we're saying, "It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year" - is because of the EXTRA time you have to devote to our favorite topic of all.  If you guessed presents - you're wrong.  It's SAFETY!

Along with Summer Shutdowns - this time of the year has a lot of people taking vacations.  And that means Maintenance and Safety Teams can canvas facilities and do what we're always reminding you of - constant and never ending improvement.

It's the time to:

  • Clean, repair, replace, and/or give machinery, vehicles, and tools an extra look.
  • Tidy up and organize all areas.
  • Install new Floor Markings and Signs.
  • Assure all pedestrian and motor traffic are routed the best ways possible.
  • Inspect and test all Fire Extinguishers, Showers, Eye-Wash Stations.
  • Make sure all Exit Signs are in working order.
  • Take down old and/or put up new Guidelines, Policies, and Emergency Info.
  • Take inventory.
  • Assure everyone has all the proper PPE.
  • Walk the facility - and see if there's anything that needs to stop, improved, and/or added for optimum safety, organization, productivity, and efficiency.
  • Assure all licenses and testing are up-to-date.
  • And that's just a few of the things you can do!

The 5th S of The 5S Methodology is SUSTAIN.  Sustaining means creating a culture that follows the other 4 S's - Sort, Set, Shine, and Standardize - on a daily basis.  

Doing this WILL make it THE most wonderful time of year - AND deliver the gift of SAFETY!
Before moving on - here's a word from one of our sponsors.

If you've ever been to or worked in a warehouse - you know just how important safety is to both management and staff.  It's almost impossible to go 10 steps without seeing Safety Tape, Angles, Signs, and/or products.
