Why gamble with warehouse safety? SCMDOJO’s Warehouse Safety Audit Tool offers a comprehensive solution to mitigate risks, fostering employee involvement and accountability for a safer workplace. Take control of safety today.

Why is a Warehouse Safety Audit Important?


According to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), warehouses in America possess a disproportionately high accident rate compared to other sectors. OSHA also notes that the fatal injury rate exceeds the national average for workplaces across the nation.


A closer examination of reports from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) offers deeper insights into the challenges confronting warehouses. Their findings corroborate OSHA’s observations about warehouses experiencing more severe accidents and higher injury rates. The BLS also underscores these four notable points from their reports:


  1. The annual warehouse injury rate in the U.S. is 5 cases per 100 full-time employees.
  2. The rate of severe injuries is 3.7 cases per 100 employees.
  3. Cases classified as less severe amount to 1.7% for warehouse employees.
  4. Almost all recorded injuries are notably preventable.


The fourth point emphasizes the significance of Warehouse Safety Audits. Workplaces that implement effective safety programs are not only more efficient but also witness fewer injuries and experience less productivity loss.


The financial importance of the Warehouse Safety Audit is underscored by the fact that most businesses are unable to bear the costs associated with an unsafe workplace.


With this significance in mind, SCMDOJO has meticulously crafted a comprehensive Warehouse Safety Audit Tool. This tool can serve as a valuable resource for consultants within your company, helping you identify areas for improvement and ensuring a safer working environment.
