The ability to work at height is important in warehouses where space is at a premium but, despite strict health and safety legislation, falls from height are the main cause of deaths or serious injury in the workplace. In 2018-19, over 44,000 workers were injured, and an average of three people died every month because of falls. Perhaps understandably, warehouse operatives under time pressure may be tempted to take shortcuts when accessing heights, especially if they fail to appreciate the risks involved. However, most of the severe working at height injuries are sustained after falls of less than 2 metres.

When you’re working at height, you’ll want the reassurance that you’re fully protected against the risk of an accident. In the UK, thousands of workers are injured, some seriously, every year due to falls from height while, on average, several people die every month from injuries sustained in this type of tragic accident. As an employer or warehouse manager, you have ultimate responsibility for ensuring that your business complies with Work at Height Regulations, and for safeguarding your colleagues from one of the most common, but preventable, accidents in the workplace.

The timely removal of waste is an important part of day to day operations for many businesses, as its accumulation can pose health and safety hazards for employees and damage productivity in the workplace. Constantly ferrying waste from the production line to a central collection point is not an effective use of staff time and can also affect your business’s ability to dispose of waste in an environmentally friendly manner.

Waste is unavoidable in most businesses but, without a plan for its removal with the right equipment, clearing it can be a time-consuming chore that causes more problems than solutions. Fast-paced environments, such as warehouses, production lines and industrial plants, rely on highly orchestrated and organised work practices, so waste removal must support and boost productivity rather than hindering it.

In fact, due to the serious risk of injury or death if an accident was to occur, working at height is governed by the law, with the Work at Height Regulations (2005) placing a legal responsibility on employers to make sure that appropriate steps are taken to protect the safety of their workforce.
