Warehousing Safety

Course Description

This course is designed for warehouse workers and will highlight many of the hazards and injuries that workers are potentially exposed to in warehouse operations.

Injuries are likely to occur from forklifts; material handling and lifting; exposure to hazardous substances; poor housekeeping and slips, trips and falls. This course will discuss: powered industrial trucks, material handling/lifting, ergonomics, hazard communication; walking and working surfaces, exit routes, fire protection and site-specific regulations.
