HSG76 – Warehousing and storage: A guide to health and safety added to our Download Page
Date of publication: 2007
Series code: HSG76
Written in conjunction with the Warehousing Health and Safety Forum – a joint committee with representation from trade unions, trade associations and employer bodies. Though in parts specific to specialist sites (eg temperature-controlled or dangerous substance storage) the majority of the book’s focus applies right across the sector regardless of facility or size.
Many special attention topics, such as manual handling, musculoskeletal awareness, mechanical handling, site transport and working at height plus more, are covered in detail but the broader emphasis is on responsible warehouse practices, general prevention of avoidable risks and hazards and attendant information of accident and emergency procedures.
