Your customers rely on you to ensure that their products are stored and distributed properly. Every day, you manage logistical processes for the safe operation of your warehouse/distribution centre and control the hazards that could put your workers, your customers’ products, and your business at risk.
It’s a logistical balancing act, but you don’t have to do it alone.
According to Statistics, there were 3,515 fatal occupational accidents in the EU in 2012. In 2012, just less than 2.5 million non-fatal occupational accidents in the EU resulted in the employee being absent from work for at least four days. Whether your employees are working in an office environment, in a warehouse, or elsewhere, it is highly important to ensure that their work environment is safe.
