The manufacturing industry plays an important role in the Australian economy, being Australia’s seventh largest industry for employment in 2019. The transport, postal, and warehousing industry employs approximately 642,600 individuals, accounting for 4.9% of the total workforce. With such high volumes of personnel seen in warehouse and industrial facilities daily, the safety of this segment is fundamental.
The industrial warehouse safety product market holds a range of warehouse safety items, all with their own benefits and best practices when applied and installed correctly within the workplace. Area Safe has recently introduced a new range of industrial safety products that have been designed and manufactured specifically for warehouse/industrial facilities. One of the newly introduced products is the Area Safe ‘Recessed Rail’. The major differentiating factor of this rail that makes it superior to others on the market is that is has been designed to recess into the post of the barrier. This strengthens the railing, making it more rigid, where other alternatives have just been bolted to the front of the post
Along with all of Area Safe’s Industrial products, there has been a thorough design process that has been comprehensively considered and extensive research has been conducted to ensure the highest level of safety and protection can be achieved in a range of warehouse/industrial environments. The result of being hit my moving objects in an industrial environment saw 35 fatalities in 2017, with 11% being from machines, predominantly forklifts. This is why it is crucial to ensure that all the appropriate safety measures and precautions are taken to provide a safe environment for workers in the industrial/warehousing industry.
Another key industrial safety product that should be installed in the appropriate locations of all warehouse/industrial facilities includes the range of Area Safe Industrial Gates. It is important to create safe work environments which means assessing the workplace and being able to clearly identify areas where there is potential for hazardous situations to arise. Industrial gates include swing gates and boom gates which are typically used where mezzanines, loading docks, and mezzanine pallet receiving bays are present. In order for potential hazards to be controlled, the correct boom gates must be installed to provide the correct level of protection and safety. If a high quality barrier/gate isn’t used, it can contribute to serious safety incidents/injury.
Hazard identification is crucial to ensure injury and fatality numbers are significantly reduced, and that all workplaces provide a safe workplace environment. Area Safe offers the highest quality industrial safety products to protect at all safety levels, in a wide variety of warehouse facility situations. It is important to be educated on the appropriate safety instructions and product specifications to ensure the correct safety products are chosen and correctly installed.
