One of the hardest parts of running a warehouse is keeping good employees. The high turnover in the field can never be reduced below a certain point, but every effort that a company makes to keep good workers means that fewer new workers have to be trained and coached through the learning curve of the job. Beyond money and benefits, employees look for a workplace that is safe and one that is comfortable, and the proper supplies can make sure a warehouse is as close to both as possible.
Compliance with OSHA regulations goes a long way towards making sure employees are safe, but managers should keep their eyes open for situations that the regs have yet to address. At a minimum, employees doing heavy lifting in a warehouse environment should have steel toed boots, back support belts and hard hats. The need for eye and ear protection will vary with the installation, but if the equipment might be needed, it should be available. Masks and respirators provide protection from inhaled particulates, and mats help prevent foot and back fatigue.
