Home Isn't An Option
 
On today's podcast - we're going to be talking about Working From Home. So stay tuned.

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!

I just received a notification from LinkedIn about a post entitled "Workplace Re-Entry:  When Is It Happening?"

For those individuals considered non-essential, I think restrictions are here to stay for a while.  And if you haven't been released from distanced duties yet - I wouldn't hold your breath.  So my answer to the LinkedIn Post would be, "Not Soon!"  Of course - I'm not in charge of and/or privileged to any information to make accurate predictions on the matter.   

In my opinion, a better question would be, "What do you do when you're essential and working from home isn't an option?"  Like it or not - warehouses HAVE to keep working or almost EVERYTHING comes to a stop.

We spoke about this on a recent podcast - but it's worth mentioning again.

Although this is a high-level list of things to do - they're MUSTS for being allowed to keep working in a Distanced Culture.

  • By now, your facility should have measures in place for Social Distancing.  This will include an action plan - and in most cases, signs and/or floor markings reminding you of those plans in reference to where you are at the time.  Knowing and even more importantly, following those plans, signs, and/or floor markings will be half the battle.  
  • Wearing appropriate PPE - ESPECIALLY masks and gloves.
  • Following your Kindergarten Rules.  Wash and keep your hands to yourself - and cover your mouth by coughing and/or sneezing into your elbow.
  • Stand apart - generally 6 ft - from fellow staff whenever possible.  And stagger breaks and lunches to limit the number of people together in the same space.
  • If possible - implement one-way traffic flows.
  • Sanitize whenever appropriate.

Most of these things have become second nature - but if we can just continue doing them hopefully, our warehouses will stay on the Essential List!

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. 

It's these items that show us how to be safe and avoid danger in the workplace.  And if you're looking for the best products to make this happen - look no further than Mighty Line!
