There are thousands of recorded accidents in the storage and warehousing industry each year. The most common are slips and trips, manual handling, falls from height, and moving vehicle impacts.

Slips and trips are the most common of all workplace hazards, more than 10,000 workers suffered serious injury this way in 2010 [1]. There are a variety of causes, either individually or combined including:

  • Suitability of flooring: texture, dry/wet, maintenance, changes in level, etc
  • Obstacles: clear walkways, trailing wires and hoses, tidiness, overspill from storage
  • Cleaning: dealing with spillages, damp floors after cleaning, trailing wires,
  • Contamination
  • Footwear
  • People
