Personal presentation is how you portray and present yourself to other people. It includes how you look, what you say, and what you do, and is all about marketing YOU, the brand that is you.

What others see and hear from you will influence their opinion of you. Good personal presentation is therefore about always showing yourself in the best possible light.

We all know that you only get one chance to make a first impression. Most of us are probably also aware that it takes quite a long time to undo that first impression—and that if it is negative, we may never get the chance to do so. This page explains some of the skills involved in making a good first impression—and then continuing to impress over time.

Understanding Personal Presentation

Personal presentation is about you and how you present yourself to others.

This includes both in everyday situations and when under pressure, for example, at job interviews. It is best thought of as a form of communication , because it always involves at least two people—the person presenting themselves (you) and the person seeing and hearing you.

Personal presentation covers what other people both see and hear. It includes how you look, what you say, and what you do. It therefore requires a wide range of skills, from improving your personal appearance to your communication skills.

However, all these aspects start from one place: you.

To present yourself well and confidently, you need to believe in yourself—or at least, be able to act as if you do.

Perception is Truth

People who present themselves as confident will be perceived as such by others.

There is also plenty of evidence that once we start acting as if we are confident, we generally feel more confident too.

Confidence—but not arrogance—is a very attractive trait. Having a justified belief in yourself and your abilities helps other people to be confident in you too.

Good personal presentation therefore requires good self-esteem and self-confidence. It means that you have to learn about yourself, and understand and accept who you are, both your positives and your negatives, and be comfortable with yourself. This does not, however, mean that you believe that there is nothing that you can improve—but that you are confident in your ability to achieve, and know how to overcome your flaws.

Paradoxically, therefore, personal presentation is actually not about being self-conscious or overly concerned with what others think about you. People who present themselves well generally do so because they believe in themselves, rather than because they are worried about what other people think. These concepts are closely related to Personal Empowerment .

A complete picture—and a cycle

Personal presentation is about conveying appropriate signals for the situation and for the other individuals involved.

People who lack self-esteem and confidence may fail to convey their message effectively or fully utilise their skills and abilities because of the way they present themselves. However, by improving your communication skills and reducing barriers to understanding, you may also improve your self-esteem and confidence.

Our pages: Communication Skills , Barriers to Communication and Improving Self-Esteem provide more information.

Areas of Personal Presentation

Improving personal presentation therefore requires a look at several different areas.

These include:

Self-esteem and self-confidence – how you feel about yourself and your abilities

Personal appearance – how you look, and how other people see you

Non-verbal communication – your body language, voice and facial expressions

Verbal communication – how you speak and use your words to make an impression

Behaviour – how you behave more generally, including politeness.

Self-Esteem and Self-Confidence

Self-esteem and self-confidence are closely related, but not quite the same thing.

Self-esteem is how you see and value yourself .

Self-confidence is believing in or having faith in your ability , rather than yourself as a person.

Neither self-esteem nor self-confidence are static. They vary as a result of numerous factors, including different situations and the presence of different people, personal stress levels and the level of change. Low levels of self-esteem are often associated with low levels of confidence, but those with good self-esteem can also suffer from low confidence.

To improve your self-esteem and self-confidence, spend time thinking about how you value yourself. Remind yourself of what is good about you, and learn to manage the highs and lows of self-esteem. In particular, try to avoid being affected too much by others’ opinions about you.

It is also worth practising coming across as confident even when you are not, because those who appear confident are not only perceived as confident, but often actually become more confident.

See our pages on Improving Self-Esteem and Building Confidence for more discussion, tips and advice on this area.

Personal Appearance and Non-Verbal Communication

Personal appearance is the way that you dress and take care of your general appearance.

Much as we may hate the idea that appearances matter, this is an important factor in personal presentation. Whether you like it or not, others will make judgements about you based on how you look, which includes how you dress and your accessories. It is therefore worth taking time to think about what messages you are sending to others in the way that you dress.

Case study: The ‘gravitas bag’

Louise was a young graduate, working in government department. She had been working there about two years, and had just started working for a new boss, a woman just a few years older than her.

One day, on the way to an important meeting, Louise’s carrier bag, in which she was carrying her notebook and pens, broke on the bus. Her boss laughed, but said to her, carefully,

“ You know, you ought to think a bit about how what you wear and carry affects what people think about you. I’m not sure it gives quite the right impression to wander into a meeting with pens and books spilling out of a split carrier bag—that’s why I keep a briefcase in my cupboard for the days when I’ve worn a backpack into work. This may sound stupid, but I always feel that people may be judging me because I’m both female and quite young. I don’t want to give them any reason to doubt my professionalism. ”

Neither did Louise. The next weekend, she went shopping. On the Monday, she proudly showed her boss a new handbag and matching briefcase—her ‘gravitas bag’, as she described it.

Your personal appearance is closely related to the body language, gestures and other non-verbal messages that you use.

Many people are unaware of how they are affected by body language, and also how they are affecting others. By being aware of positive and negative non-verbal signals, you can improve your image and the way people perceive you.

There is more about these ideas in our pages on Personal Appearance and Non-Verbal Communication , including specific pages on Body Language and Face and Voice .

Verbal Communication and Effective Speaking

What you say and how you say it are both important aspects of how you are perceived by others.

Verbal communication is all about the words that you choose. Those who are good at verbal communication understand the impact of their particular choice of words and choose the right words for the situation and the audience. They are skilled at getting their message across to others and ensuring that it has been received.

See our pages on Verbal Communication for more.

Good communicators also use their voices effectively to convey their feelings, and to influence their audience. Your voice says a lot about you and learning how to use it more effectively has many benefits. There are a number of aspects to your voice, including accent, tone, pitch and volume. Some of these are easier to change than others, but it is worth thinking about how each of these affects your audience, so that you can learn to use your voice more effectively. 

See our pages Effective Speaking and Non-Verbal Communication: Face and Voice to learn more.

How you behave, and not just how you speak, will leave a strong impression on others.

For example, if you are habitually late, you may give other people the impression that you do not value their time. Good time management skills can therefore be helpful in giving the right impression—as well as enabling you to work more efficiently.

See our pages Time Management and Avoiding Distractions for some ideas of to improve your time management skills.

More crucially, your general politeness—to everyone, and not just people who ‘matter’—will create an important impression about how you value others.  This is an essential element of personal presentation. It pays to consider your manners.

See our page How to be Polite for more.

And finally…

It is almost certainly impossible to overestimate the importance of personal presentation, especially in creating a good first impression, but also in giving a longer-term view of yourself.

Improving some fairly basic communication skills and increasing your self-awareness will improve your ability to present yourself well. Knowing that you are more likely to say and do the right things, and look the part, will help to increase your confidence. All these will, in turn, help to ensure that you give the right impression.

This is especially true in more formal situations, culminating in improved communication and therefore better understanding.

Learn about the basics of warehouse safety, OSHA warehousing standards, and tips to help ensure health and safety in warehouses.

employee practicing warehouse safety

Published 21 Nov 2022

What is Warehouse Safety?

Warehouse safety is a set of regulatory guidelines and industry best practices to help warehousing personnel ensure a safe work environment and reinforce safe behavior when working in warehouses. For sustainable warehouse operations, health and safety should be prioritized as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) revealed that the fatal injury rate for the warehousing industry is higher than the national average for all industries.

Warehouses can be dangerous places to work in. It is important to understand common warehouse dangers and hazards because they can cause injuries and in extreme cases death. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics reported an average of 16 fatalities every year in the U.S. warehousing and storage sector and a reported injury and illness rate of 5 out of every 100 warehouse and storage workers.

While there are no explicit OSHA warehousing regulations, warehouse operations fall under the general industry requirements which include the following OSHA standards :

Here are 8 of the most common warehouse safety hazards and safety tips and resources to help you identify and control them:

Materials storage

Manual lifting/handling

Hazardous chemicals

Charging stations.

Energized equipment

Depending on the type of business, there are specific safety rules to be followed due to hazards that are also specific to the type of work people do. However, there are also warehouse safety rules that should be adhered to by workers in any warehouse. Below are a few general tips to follow to ensure warehouse safety, regardless of business or industry.

Setting and maintaining warehouse safety programs is an ongoing process of identifying barriers to safe work and removing them from the warehouse operations. Any warehouse safety program should be tailored to the current condition, needs, and culture of the warehousing workers, but it should at least contain:

Create Your Own Warehouse Safety Checklist

Eliminate manual tasks and streamline your operations.

Improving warehouse safety takes small but consistent actions done by everyone in every area of warehouse operations, not just by safety personnel. Apart from having the required certifications and appropriate training, facilitating regular warehouse safety meetings or toolbox talks can help engage with frontline workers better, foster collaboration, and build a safety culture from the ground up.

Listed below are relevant warehouse topics you can discuss with your team:

If safety procedures and workplace hazards are disregarded in warehouses to cut costs, it exposes workers to serious risks of accidents and injury. Providing workers training on hazard awareness, conducting safety inspections, and implementing warehouse safety measures can help maintain a safe, secure and healthy working environment.

For even more tips on how to make a presentation about yourself, keep reading the tutorial below.

How to Prepare a Good Presentation About Yourself

With proper preparation and planning, you can easily create a great PowerPoint presentation about yourself. Here’s how: 

1. Decide Which Information to Include in the Presentation

Company Profile PowerPoint Template

The first step in creating a presentation about yourself is to decide which information you want to include. While this may be a presentation about you, that doesn’t mean you need to include your whole life story. Only choose to include information that’s relevant to the audience. 

If you’re giving a presentation about yourself in a business conference, focus on your skills and education. Explain how they're relevant to the topic. If you’re giving a who am I presentation in a local community meetup, then it makes more sense to focus on your involvement in the community.

2. Prepare & Design the All About Myself PowerPoint Presentation

Before you create the all about myself PowerPoint presentation, write the contents first. Once you know which information to include, put it in bullet point format to make it easier for your audience to follow.

Once you’ve prepared the content, start designing your about me presentation in PowerPoint. The easiest way to design your presentation is with a premade PowerPoint template. 

Agio PowerPoint Template

3. Create Your Introduction

Your introduction will be the first thing your audience will hear. As such, your introduction slide about yourself needs to pique their interest and make you feel relatable. This will build trust with your audience. It’ll also help you keep the audience engaged throughout the who am I presentation. Plus, it'll make you more memorable long after the presentation is over.  

A great way to kick off the introduction is to tie yourself to the topic and then tie the topic to the audience. Start by stating your name and job title and then share a random or a fun fact about you. Then, transition into the main part of your presentation about yourself. 

4. Sell Yourself & Talk About Your Accomplishments

One of the hardest parts of your all about myself presentation is selling yourself and talking about your accomplishments. An easy way to do this is to highlight the results you’ve gotten for your clients. Accompany them with testimonials on your about me presentation slides. 

You can also share your accomplishments and skills by providing value first. Then, talk about how you got there before transitioning into the actual accomplishment list.  

5. Adapt Your About Me Presentation for Different Lengths

Be sure to tweak and adapt your presentation for different lengths. For example, a one-minute presentation about yourself is enough to state your name and job title and share a relevant fact about yourself. A five-minute presentation allows you to include more information, such as your professional achievements or your related work. 

It’s a good idea to inquire about the length of time you’ll have available. Plan your presentation for that time slot.

6. Engage the Audience Before the Start

People in business meeting audience

Engage your audience before you start the all about myself PowerPoint presentation. You can do this by:

This turns your audience into active participants. They'll be more likely to stay engaged throughout the about me professional presentation.

7. Give the Self Introduction Speech

Once you’ve introduced yourself and gotten your audience engaged, it’s time to give the self-introduction speech. During this part, make eye contact with your audience. Keep the about me presentation informative without bragging.

Refer them back to the introduction slide about yourself or the handout for any extra information. This way you can keep your about me professional presentation succinct. Keep some relevant information for later parts of the presentation. Revealing everything at once will make your presentation less interesting.  

8. Nail the Conclusion

You’ve hooked your audience with a great introduction slide about yourself, you gave the talk and kept your audience engaged. Now is the time to nail the conclusion. Start by asking your audience if they've got any questions and encourage them to start the discussion. 

Once you’ve answered their question, let them know what’s the next step and what they should do. Be sure to include this information on the final slide as well as on the handout. 

9. Establish a Personal Connection With Your Audience

audience listening to a speaker in a meeting

A personal connection with your audience will make them trust you more and remember you and your all about myself PowerPoint presentation. A few ways to establish a personal connection include:

10. Practice With a Friend

To make sure that your who am I presentation goes smoothly, practice it with a friend. Not only will you be able to deliver your presentation without awkward pauses, but your friend or coworker can give you valuable pointers. 

Practice your about me professional presentation well in advance to have plenty of time to prepare. 

11. Make Them Laugh

People laughing

We’ve already mentioned using humor to break the ice and to establish a personal connection with your audience. Humor makes you more relatable and can make any topic more interesting. Use humor sparingly and tastefully, otherwise your jokes will miss the mark.  

12. Keep Your Audience In Mind

Your about me presentation should be tailored to your audience. For example, if you’re delivering your presentation in a formal setting with a corporate audience, keep the tone professional. 

Get familiar with your audience before you start preparing your presentation. This knowledge can serve as your guide. It'll help you decide which information you should include. Plus, you can decide what style and tone of voice to use. Understanding the audience is a must before including humor and cultural references in your all about myself PowerPoint presentation.

13. Show Your Passion

Show your passion. Everyone has a passion for something, whether it’s your job, your hobby or a cause you care about. When you show passion, people see you as more relatable. This helps form that personal connection and establishes trust, especially if they share your passion. 

Think about how your passion relates to your professional achievements as well. This can serve as an unusual but more memorable way to deliver your presentation and talk about yourself.

14. Pay Attention to How the Presentation Looks

Marketplace Business Template

Using a ga-analytics#sendElementsClickEvent">professionally designed template such as this one from Envato Elements can help you make the right impression with your audience.

Sure, the presentation is about you. But that doesn't mean that how it looks is unimportant. You want to make a good impression. The best way to do that is by using a ga-analytics#sendElementsClickEvent">professionally designed template such as those available from Envato Elements.

Now that you know the basics of what should be included in your about me presentation, let’s go through the steps of actually creating it. The easiest way to start is with a premium template. For this tutorial, I’ll use the ga-analytics#sendElementsClickEvent">Amarish Powerpoint Template . 

amarish powerpoint template

It's a modern and clean design with 30 slides and five color variations for a grand total of 150+ slides. 

1. Decide on Your Slides

Delete a slide

As mentioned earlier, the Amarish template comes with 30 slides, but chances are you won’t need all of them. The first thing you should do is delete unnecessary slides. You can easily delete a slide by right-clicking on it and pressing Delete Slide . 

2. Customize the Title Slide

Customizing the title slide

Once you’ve decided on the slides you want to keep, take some time to customize the title slide. You’ll want to include your name and a nice profile photo of you. To customize the text, double-click the title and then enter your name. To add your photo, click on the picture icon and select a photo from your computer. Then, press Insert . 

3. Add Your Content

Adding content to your About Me presentation

The next step is to add your content to the presentation. Similarly to the title slide, all you've got to do is double-click text, press CTRL+A to select all of it, and then enter your text.

As you’re entering the content, you can also customize the fonts used in the presentation about yourself. Simply select a different font from the drop-down menu.

4. Highlight Your Achievements With a Timeline Slide

Use a timeline to highlight your achievements

Make sure to include a timeline slide to highlight your achievements. This is a great way to showcase important dates and milestones in your career.

The Amarish template comes with a stunning timeline slide that’s easy to customize. All you've got to do is edit the text and the years to match your milestones. If you wish, you can customize the color used to represent the milestone by selecting the circle and selecting Format Shape . Then, set the Fill option to your preferred color.

5. Customize the Style

Customize the style and colors of your presentation

The last step is to customize the style of your presentation. The easiest way to do this is to change out the colors used in your presentation about yourself. All you've got to do is right-click on a colored shape and select the Format Shape option. Then, choose your preferred color for the Fill color. 

Or, click on the Design tab and then press the down arrow on the Variants tab and hover over Colors . Choose a different color theme to quickly change colors throughout the presentation. 

How to Start a Presentation About Yourself (5 Quick Design Tips)

One of the best ways to start a presentation about yourself is to start with a premade presentation template designed for PowerPoint. The benefit of working with an about me PowerPoint template is that you don’t have to start from scratch. This means you'll be able to create your about me professional presentation much faster. 

PowerPoint templates come with various slide designs that you can use to share information. Just customize the design with your text and your choice of colors and fonts.  

Akhara PowerPoint Template

Once you've got a PowerPoint template to use as a starting point, there are a few design tips to keep in mind so you can create a good presentation about yourself: 

1. Keep Text Down to a Minimum

Resist the temptation to include all the information on your slides. Not only will this overwhelm your audience, you also run the risk of your audience getting bored as they’ve read what’s on the slide and are now waiting for you to move on to the next one. Share the main idea on the slide and then elaborate in your speech. 

2. Increase the Font Size

Keep in mind that your about me professional presentation will most likely be viewed on a screen or a wall. And not everyone will have a seat that’s front and center. So, you need to increase your font size to at least 28px so even those who are further away can still read what’s on the slide.  

3. Mind Your Photos

Porto Template

Use high-quality photos. You’ll want to make sure that your photos aren’t blurry and are well-lit so everyone can see the subject of your photo. 

4. Ensure There’s Plenty of Contrast

For best practices, make sure there's enough contrast between your slide background and the text. Black text on white background works well and maintains legibility. This will ensure that everyone can read the contents of your presentation. 

5. Be Careful With Colors

Be PowerPoint Presentation Template

Use colors that reflect your personal brand. But don’t go overboard as too much color will distract your audience. Use color as an accent in headings or to add a border around your page instead of as a full slide background.

The Practical Warehouse Safety Guide

Dave Paoletta

Most people don’t think twice about it. They place an order and a package arrives on their doorstep in a day or two, sometimes less; or they head to their local box store and pick up just what they need.

This scenario is becoming so ordinary for consumers that it’s easy to forget the hands that scan, stock, pick, and sort our goods in warehouses across the world. In this new era of immediate product gratification, are warehouse workers able to do their jobs safely? 

About This Guide

Warehouses across the country are facing new and unusual safety challenges — but warehouse safety programs are not keeping up the pace, as indicated by elevated injury and fatality statistics . 

To make matters worse, companies struggling to keep up with e-commerce giants often make sweeping changes and expect safety processes to catch up. But if a company doesn’t have a safe warehouse, they are in danger of losing good-quality workers, facing large lawsuits and fines, and losing their customer base. 

In this guide, we’ll look at practical ways to prioritize and improve your warehouse safety program.

Today’s Warehouse Safety Challenges

The reasons for the drop in safety at warehouses are many, but a low unemployment rate and lack of properly-trained workers are two examples. Other challenges include workflow and workload changes, worker engagement, and injuries and fatalities, whether from unsafe working conditions, human error or other reasons.

Warehouse Injuries and Fatalities

Annual warehouse injury and fatality rates are rising, which is a disturbing trend. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics , over 683,000 employees work in some type of warehouse setting. These roles include everything from truck and tractor operators to material movers to order fillers. In 2015, 11 workers were killed; in 2016, 16 warehouse workers died from injuries sustained on the job.

In 2019, the transportation and warehousing worker injury rate was 4.4 per 100 full-time workers . The sector has the second-highest rate of recordable cases in private industry after agriculture, forestry, fishing and hunting. There were also 914 fatal occupational industries in transportation and warehousing in 2019, and trucking accounted for 617. In 2015, there 765 fatalities in the sector, which presents a worrying trend.

Talent Shortage

While injuries and fatalities can still occur with properly trained and highly qualified workers, they tend to happen in lower numbers. Like many other service and trade industries, warehouse jobs are plentiful but the workforce to fill those spots is slim. The shortage of experienced workers across supply chains leads to higher rates of accidents, injuries, and fatalities.

The talent shortage is the product of several factors. First, Baby Boomers are retiring at high rates, and companies don’t have the managers needed to replace them. Additionally fewer high school graduates and college-educated workers choose warehousing and transportation as a long-term career, which means there are entry-level applicants but a shortage of middle management.

Cost-cutting measures also play a role. The physical demands of warehousing, coupled with relatively low wages and job security at some companies results in higher turnover throughout the year. And due to seasonal changes in workload, warehousing employs more temporary, contract, and aging workers than industries like manufacturing. Plus, companies reduce headcount and cut training programs during times of downturn, which further shrinks their talent pools.

The e-Commerce Boom

The talent shortage is a crucial problem that grows year on year. The growth of e-commerce saw a request for an additional 452,000 warehouse workers in 2018-19 . And it’s likely the COVID-19 pandemic and the shift in online shopping trends will mean even bigger numbers for 2021-22.

As e-commerce continues to explode, business slowdowns and lay-offs at brick and mortar retailers impact worker safety. As more and more people turn to the Internet for their shopping needs, brick and mortar stores struggle to keep up. These businesses often have to lay off workers in all shifts, which can be an especially dangerous proposition when it comes to backroom, stock, and warehouse workers.

Pile of cardboard boxes illustrating unsafe warehouse conditions

Without enough stock and warehouse workers, backrooms and warehouses fill up with boxes of merchandise, creating hazardous working conditions ripe for injuries.

In a 2019 article , Business Insider explored the numerous overnight stock and backroom shift cuts at Target stores across the United States. Target employees expressed concerns that these cuts have led to more injuries for workers on the job.

In Idaho, OSHA cited four Dollar Tree Stores for storage and walkway violations leading to over $800,000 in fines. Brick and mortar stores aren’t the only ones facing possible fines and allegedly exposing employees to dangerous conditions.

According to a 2018 article on, Amazon warehouses are fraught with unsafe conditions, including grueling schedules, unrealistic goals, and dangerous procedures.

Constant Workflow and Workload Changes

Even under safe conditions, working in a warehouse can still be hard work. Workers are constantly on their feet, walking, bending, lifting and working; making it a physically demanding job. The workload needs in a warehouse are also dynamic, changing from day-to-day and even from hour-to-hour.

Environmental factors such as high or low temperatures, noise levels, and poor lighting also affect workers’ health and safety in warehouses. These ever-changing conditions, if not properly managed, can have a negative impact on safety.  

2020 OSHA Warehouse Citations

In the last few years, OSHA has seen an uptick in violations, especially those violations that incur six-figure fines . In 2020, general warehousing and storage facilities received 300 federal OSHA citations for:

View the complete list of 2019-2020 citations for NAICS CODE 493110 General Warehousing and Storage .

Companies that received citations failed to maintain OSHA compliance in one or more of the above areas. The resulting unsafe conditions led to harm or unnecessary risk to employees. 

Warehouse Safety Standards

Setting common warehouse safety standards that can be applied across the board is one way to improve working conditions. Currently, a patchwork of  General Industry Standards  governs safety in the warehouse environment, but not all hazards, such as Heat Illness and Ergonomic hazards are contained in a current standard that is enforceable in the Warehouse industry.

OSHA’s Role in Warehouse Safety

To help facilitate worker safety in warehouses, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration offers a brochure on safety,  Worker Safety Series: Warehousing . This publication covers the most common hazards in a warehouse setting. It covers specific areas of the warehouse, from the docks to the conveyors, providing tips on reducing hazards in those areas. The brochure also contains Think Safety Checklists covering:

Other helpful resources on safety from OSHA include:

OSHA Warehouse Standards

OSHA recognizes 10 warehouse standards when assessing properties and companies for safety. These safety standards include:

PPE Required in a Warehouse

OSHA  requires employers to provide all employees in a warehouse with the appropriate PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). Employers looking for a comprehensive guide to PPE can utilize OSHA’s Personal Protective Equipment  brochure . OSHA requires employers to perform continuous hazard assessments to determine what types of PPE is needed. Each employer is also responsible for:

The onus for proper PPE use doesn’t just fall on the employer. Employees must properly wear PPE, attend training sessions, care for, clean and properly store PPE and inform supervisors when PPE needs to be replaced or repaired. Common types of PPE used in a warehouse include:

Mandatory Safety Signage

Each warehouse is also required to post  mandatory safety signage . All of OSHA’s signage guidelines are found in  29 CFR 1910.145 . The signage guidelines tell employers what types of signage is needed, where it should be placed and exactly what it should look like.

Safety signs in warehouses fall into several different categories: notice, general safety, admittance, fire safety, and non-hazard. Within these categories, signs should have one of three levels of classification.

Danger signs alert to the most serious of hazards. Warning signs show areas that could be hazardous but do not need as much caution as danger areas. Finally, caution signs highlight areas that could cause minor injuries or damage but should still be taken seriously.

Here are some helpful resources to help determine what signage is needed for your warehouses:

Required Training for Warehouse Workers

Other OSHA requirements include mandatory training for employees. Training requirements for general industry, maritime, construction, agriculture and federal employee programs are laid out in OSHA’s  Training Requirements in OSHA Standards  booklet. Companies should consult the booklet to see which requirements apply to their warehouses and overall business. For additional training, employers can utilize OTI Education Centers. These nonprofit organizations are authorized by OSHA to provide occupational safety and health training to workers, supervisors and employers. OSHA also offers educational materials to supplement training, including:

Warehouse Safety Management

Warehouse safety starts with a solid management plan that includes training, regular meetings with employees and strategies for safety.

How to Train Employees in Warehouse Safety

As mentioned before, well-trained and qualified workers are safer workers. While an employer cannot control the type of training an employee brings to the job, they can be sure that any continuing training is applicable, useful and comprehensive. It’s particularly important with today’s multi-ethnic workforce to provide training in the primary languages spoken by the workers.

When evaluating and considering which training programs to offer employees, look for programs that apply to all workers, as well as those that will help more specific warehouse roles. Everyone should learn proper procedures for hazardous material spills, while only certain workers who operate the forklift would need detailed forklift operation training.

OSHA’s Hazard Identification Training Tool helps companies identify hazards in their own warehouses. Using this information, employers can then develop and find training programs to match where it is most needed.

Test employees with pop quizzes to see what information the employees have mastered and what needs more review.

Warehouse Safety Meeting Topics

An extension of training, regularly scheduled meetings are integral to keeping safety at the forefront of employees’ minds.

Warehouse safety topics to cover:

The above safety meetings are available as free templates in Safesite . To access them, create a free account or download the Safesite app on Android or iOS . Then, search the meeting template library to find the one you want. Next, edit it to fit the needs of your organization. Finally, conduct your meeting, take attendance, and log your meeting — all using your mobile device.

Warehouse Safety Checklists

Keeping all the safety requirements straight can be a daunting task. Use checklists to ensure nothing slips through the cracks. Here are a few examples from our article on essential warehouse checklists:

Each of these checklists is available as a template in Safesite . To access them, create a free account or download the Safesite app on Android or iOS . Then, search the template library to find the checklist you want. Next, edit it to fit the needs of your organization or use the checklist as-is and immediately conduct an inspection with your mobile device.

Standard Operating Procedures

Every warehouse safety plan should also include Standard Operating Procedures. These SOPs outline in detail how to perform various warehouse jobs and duties, so that everyone who needs to do those can follow the same protocols. SOPs should incorporate safety checklists, everything covered in training and emergency procedures.

Safety Observations, Inspections, and Audits

With over 7 million workplaces under its jurisdiction, OSHA does not have the capacity to inspect all workplaces unless a report of unsafe conditions or illness/injury occurs.

Avoid OSHA inspections by remaining in compliance. Warehouse owners and managers should conduct their own audits and inspections. Basic high-level inspections should be done daily or weekly, while a detailed audit should be done at least once a year.

Warehouse Safety Rules and Tips

Below are warehouse safety tips covering different areas that can help get you started as you put together your own safety management plan.

Cold Storage

Signage and Tape

Ergonomics/Lifting Tips

Warehouse Management Solutions for Safety Challenges

All these tips and resources are helpful for general safety concerns in a warehouse. What do you do with special situations or when especially tough problems arise?

Behavior-Based Warehouse Safety Program

A relatively new concept in the safety and risk management sphere, Behavior-Based Safety programs start by changing behaviors to increase safety. These programs are a collaboration between employer and employee and require cooperation on both sides.

With BBS , employees are observed in various work situations. Employers then use that data to determine ways they should train employees to react, behave or act differently in a safety situation.

Work with HR to Develop Safety-Related Policies

Work with your human resources department to develop policies, expectations, and accountability plans related to safety behavior. Work safe behavior into your job descriptions and leadership development plans.

Create a Positive Safety Culture

Safety in the workplace should also be part of the company’s culture. From the top managers down to the employees, everyone needs to buy into an atmosphere of safety. Here are several ways companies can create a positive safety culture:

Communicate, Communicate, Communicate

Always keep the lines of communication open between management and employees, among co-workers and from the company to the public. This transparent atmosphere assures that everyone is on the same page safety-wise and can move toward common goals. Open communication also assures that when problems do arise, they can be solved quickly and efficiently.

Workers Walking In Storage And Pointing At Boxes. In Hands Folder And Tablet, On Heads Helmets.

Talk about safety at every company meeting, mention it in employee newsletters and other publications and provide plenty of opportunities for training. When communication is encouraged and expected, it allows for better accountability across the board.

Care About Worker Wellbeing

Developing safe workers and a safe work environment starts with management and top leaders caring for their workers and their wellbeing. This begins from the time a manager hires an employee and continues throughout that employee’s time with the company.

When an employee feels like those in management roles actually care about them, they often perform better with better output. Employees who feel valued at work also tend to remain loyal to that employer.

Pay Attention to Risky Behaviors

Even if it’s done in jest or a joking manner, risky behaviors are a red flag for other unsafe actions. If an employer sees workers engaging in horseplay, pranking, teasing and/or bullying, they should address the situation. These types of actions can lead to more serious unsafe behaviors and disregard your culture of safety.

Reward Safety

Positive reinforcement is another effective way to encourage safety in the workplace. Industry Week offers several easy ways to reward safety including:

Invest in Leadership Development

A company can assure their culture of safety continues by raising up leaders well versed in those ideas and beliefs. Company leaders should invest in leadership development programs to raise up the next generation of leaders in the company.

Even if those workers don’t move into higher roles in the company, leadership development gives them a sense of ownership in the company, making them more likely to work hard and be loyal. When company leaders lead by example, this helps employees understand the importance of safety and why the company places it in such a high category.

Creating a safe and productive warehouse setting starts with a culture of safety. This culture should be reinforced by the managers at all levels, especially executives and owners.

Creating a safe working environment begins with a safety plan that covers all parts of the warehouse and applies to all employees. Owners and managers should expect to put resources of time and money toward safety and willingly build these costs into the overall budget. Employers should always remember that safe employees are more productive and more likely to remain loyal to the company. If employers take care of their employees, their employees will take care of their jobs.

Warehousing Management • Primary purpose of a warehousing management is to control the movement and storage of materials within an operation and process the associated transactions. • Warehousing is viewed as a place to store inventory as well as a facility for switching the inventory. • Need for warehousing management: • Reduce inventory • Reduce labor cost • Increase storage capacity • Increase customer service • Increase inventory accuracy

Warehouse Management Primary Functions of Warehousing • Trans-Shipment Point • A facility where products are received, sorted, sequenced and selected into loads consistent with the customers’ needs • Stockpiling • The storage of inventories in warehouses to protect against seasonality either in supply or demand • Production Support • A warehouse dedicated to storing parts and components needed to support a plant’s operations

Warehouse Management • Break-Bulk • Splitting a large shipment into individual orders and arranging for local delivery to customers • Warehouse Consolidation • Combining shipments from a number of sources into one larger shipment going to a single location • Cross-Docking • Combines break-bulk and consolidation warehouse activities

Warehouse Management

Warehouse Management • Reverse Logistics Support • The logistics needed to send products or packaging materials back to disassembly, reclamation or disposal sites • Returned products can be remanufactured or updated for resale • Value-Added Services • Any work that creates greater value for customers • Services may change the physical features or configuration of products so they are presented to customers in a unique or customized manner

Warehouse Management Warehouse Functions • Receiving and Unloading • Inbound shipments must be received and unloaded from the transportation vehicles • Part of this activity may also involve checking the shipment for the correct quantities and for potential damage to products • In-Storage Handling • Once unloaded the goods must be moved to the desired destination within the facility, whether this is an actual storage location or a shipping area in the case of a cross-dock facility

Warehouse Management • Storage • Products are held, even if for only a few minutes in a storage area • Order-Picking • The products are removed from storage and assembled into appropriate quantities and assortments to fill customer orders • Staging • The assembled orders are moved to an area in the warehouse in readiness for loading into a transportation vehicle bound for customer locations • Shipping • Involves verifying that the assembled orders are correct and the actual loading of the transportation vehicles

Warehouse Management Types of Warehouse • Private Warehouse • Facility that is owned and operated by the firm that own the products • Public Warehouse • A firm that offers warehouse services to the public for a fee based on the amount of spaced used and the number of shipments into or out of the facility • Contract Warehouse • Companies offer to build, own and operate warehouse facilities for the benefit of clients who do not want to undertake those responsibilities themselves

Warehouse Strategies • A private or contract facility may be used to cover basic year round requirements • Public facilities are used to handle peak seasons • Public and contract warehouse have demonstrated more responsiveness as they offer location flexibility • Public and contract warehousing increases the potential for industry synergy • Public and contract warehouses are able to design operations and facilities to meet higher volumes of multiple clients • Public warehousing facility can provide complete logistical support ......

Summary • Warehouse are more properly viewed as places where products may be stored and assortments of products created in accordance with customer requirements • Warehouses perform several functions over and above storage. It also provide benefits through consolidation, break-bulk, cross-docking and assortment activities

A warehousing is a location where goods can be stored. Goods could be stored for several reasons, such as for storage, distribution, manufacturing, assembly or testing. Warehousing has become a popular career choice for those who are interested in industrial careers. The profession of warehousing is still a small part of the global industrial sector, but the need for warehouses will grow exponentially in the future. One of the main reasons why warehousing is important to modern industry is because companies need a way to store their finished goods and their raw materials. The storage facilities can range from small units to massive facilities that take up large tracts of land. Warehouses can be used for either commercial or non-commercial purposes. In recent years there has been an increased focus on lean manufacturing which requires that materials and finished goods are stored in a central location so that they can be moved into production as needed. In order to accomplish this process efficiently, companies have invested heavily in warehouse management systems (WMS) which allows them to optimize their warehouse operations by tracking all of the inventory and monitoring shipments as they leave the warehouse. A warehouse is a structure that is specifically designed to store goods and materials. Warehouses are usually owned by business organizations that are engaged in manufacturing, wholesaling, retailing or importing. These warehouses are typically storage locations for items that have been purchased by a customer or client and will eventually be sold to another customer or client. It is very common for these warehouses to have multiple levels or rooms where the different items are stored. To prevent theft and other criminal activities it is very common for the warehouse to have surveillance equipment as well as a security guard on duty at all times when the warehouse is open. It is also common for these warehouses to have special air conditioning and fire suppression systems in place to protect against any potential damage from extreme temperatures or fires. The most common form of warehousing involves storage space located within a structure with a forklift inside of it to transport items from one side of the warehouse to another side of the warehouse as needed. However there are also times when a forklift will not be necessary and it will just be possible to drive around the warehouse and load items directly into a truck without any assistance from forklifts or other similar equipment. These warehouses can come in many different sizes and shapes depending on what type of items they will be storing. It is also common for these warehouses to be divided into different areas that will hold certain types of items while keeping other types of items separate from each other within the same warehouse structure. This separation of certain types of items within a single warehouse structure is most commonly done by using shelving units with barcodes on them where each different type of item has its own designated spot on the shelving unit where it belongs according to the barcode associated with it.

WMS Features & Requirements Checklist

Think about warehouse management software as tools that provide an overarching “facility, packages and people” approach to warehouse operations. These software platforms manage several steps of the supply chain management process, including everything from shipping to employee scheduling.

They also integrate various types of analytics and business intelligence . Company leaders can use this valuable data to help fine-tune or revamp their warehouse operations (or even their entire supply chain). Data visibility is key to achieving a fully optimized warehousing operation; make sure these tools are part of your warehouse management system requirements!

What This Article Covers:

Warehousing Functions

Inventory Management

Best Practices

Warehousing is a critical aspect of a profitable and efficient business. It allows you to manage your inventory while maintaining and controlling items before they ship. Here’s a list of warehouse management functions that will not only solve your business challenges but give you a systematic process to follow:

Warehousing Functions

You need to have a clear objective about your warehouse’s purpose, inventory, lifespan and storage space before starting. Items you don’t need right away can be kept in storage and removed as needed. This strategy reduces stock wastage while ensuring that items are safe.

Storage plays a critical role part of warehouse management functions. For example, you’ll probably require additional storage during the holiday season and when goods sell at lower rates. You can remove these items from storage when prices increase or demand is high.

Minimize Risks

Items stored in warehouses are most likely insured from theft, fire or damage. Although most warehouses minimize risks, it is still advisable to install surveillance systems to capture criminal activity and avoid product loss. Such systems can boost warehouse security by allowing managers to remotely monitor every activity in and around the warehouse.

Installing alarm systems and placing sensors in locations that need close monitoring will automatically send signals and notifications about potential break-ins.

Value-added Services

Packing and grading are value-added services warehouses offer on behalf of the manufacturer of goods or wholesalers. They also include customization, re-packaging, re-branding, bundling and processing. Such services provide efficient product delivery, generate higher value and optimize the supply chain.

Barcode printing, stamping, labeling, invoice printing, order fulfillment, goods disposal and quality checks are other value-added services provided by warehouses.

Price Stability

Maintaining a stabilized pricing option is another important aspect that warehouses control. They help manage price fluctuations by storing goods when there is excess demand in the market while releasing goods when the demand is under control. This strategy lets warehouses make sure there’s enough inventory/goods to match supply and demand, leading to price stability.

Goods Movement

Upgraded infrastructure and robust warehouse management system features are key to moving goods smoothly in and around your warehouse. The movement of goods includes inbound and outbound activity, order selection and storage transfer. These activities involve unloading goods, transferring them to the storage area and choosing items for shipping.

Thus, WMS software helps you solve challenges that are likely to happen in day-to-day operations.

Easy movement of goods includes inbound and outbound activity, order selection and transfer to storage. This function is one major reason you should regularly use upgraded infrastructure and warehouse management system features.

Similarly, to run a successful business, you must consider choosing WMS software with features and requirements that best suit your needs.

Features and Requirements

Some warehouse management software solutions look a lot like inventory management software , but most are oriented more toward warehouse management’s physical and logistical aspects. When considering a WMS, keep your business’s unique warehouse management system functional requirements in mind and include the features you need.

Keeping your WMS requirements and functionality checklist on hand when selecting a solution can also help keep must-have features from being forgotten. Here are some warehouse management software features to consider:

1. Inventory Management

Inventory management is one of the most significant warehouse management system features. This WMS feature is a must-have if you want to maintain your inventory levels. Some major components of robust inventory management include inventory visibility, forecasting, purchasing history, tracking, analysis and accounting.

At some point in time, handling your inventory manually isn’t going to work. Some operations can get out of control while processing multiple orders from different sales channels and checking stocks across different platforms.

For warehouses handling specialized types of products and materials, warehouse management solutions often include specific inventory management tools such as perishable goods tracking and FIFO/LIFO protocols . These protocols, properly backed up by digital planning tools, keep products fresh and decrease waste.

Having a good inventory management system benefits a warehouse in many ways. It improves customer experiences and cash flow, optimizes fulfillment and prevents shrinkage. Make sure to watch out for these warehouse management software features:

2. Cartonization

This feature evaluates items based on the number and size of cartons. You can select standalone applications or modules that are part of an enterprise resource planning (ERP) or warehouse management system to manage cartonization. It’s best used in warehouses that involve multiple distribution operations.

Algorithms analyze the best way to pack cartons and minimize labor costs. These algorithms select items according to weight, height, width and length to pack them as efficiently as possible. Besides analysis, this feature also improves traditional shipping methods via automation.

With cartonization, warehouses can run their distribution operations efficiently while reducing overall shipping costs. However, there are certain factors to watch out for when choosing containers or cartons before shipping.

Make sure you select a WMS that includes these features as well:

3. Warehouse Automation

One of the key factors fueling significant industry growth is warehouse automation . It offers a wide range of benefits, including enhanced productivity, minimized labor risks, reduced human error, increased efficiency and better accuracy.

As automation integration continues to rise in popularity, warehouse managers can do away with time-intensive manual tasks. Speaking of automation, incorporating robotics, AI and machine learning into warehouse management systems can drastically increase efficiency and speed. Picking robots can find and transport materials without requiring employees to run back and forth from products to shipping areas.

With autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) taking over non-productive walking times, automation significantly improves efficiency and productivity. AMRs aren’t just for large organizations, even smaller companies can deploy them for scalability and flexibility.

Implementing AMRs or automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRs) with an automated warehouse system can significantly improve overall processes. These modern technologies facilitate accuracy and safer operations, from tripling order fulfillment productivity to faster deployment and improved picking accuracy.

An automated warehouse system can automate multiple repetitive tasks like inventory management, picking and packing, back-office management and more. Although most WMSs offer basic features, you’ll need to dive deep into solutions that comply with your warehouse management system requirements to ensure they offer the right tools, like:

According to Acumen Research and Consulting, the global warehouse automation market could reach a value of $64,639 million by 2030. Integrating the right warehouse management system requirements and innovative technologies can solidify a competitive edge.

4. Labor Management

Apart from the many unique features that identify and monitor physical materials and packages, other warehouse management software features include labor management. Proper labor management can keep employees on task and discover processes that waste valuable resources. Employees can maintain online attendance using QR or pin codes to track timing.

These features also give employees a way to track hours, look at paid time off and see how much overtime they have.

Workforce planning software has come a long way in just a few years. Most companies use enterprise automation as part of their warehousing solution by integrating labor management systems with robust WMS platforms. Labor management tools can identify staff and maintain schedules while matching individual staff members to tasks.

The labor side of the equation is critically important in ensuring vital warehouse management functions happen as planned. Make sure some of these features are present in the warehouse management system you choose:

5. Order Picking

Order picking is time-consuming and takes up over half of picking operation costs. While warehouse order picking is crucial for smooth order-fulfillment processes, selecting the right picking method is a must-have.

Picking isn’t something you can manage through purely manual means. There’s a lot of activity involved, like receiving and storing inventory, moving items across the warehouse and picking orders for shipments. All of these operations are important. If one falters, the entire supply chain can suffer.

The benefits of obtaining the right warehouse order picking system include reduced warehouse costs, improved customer satisfaction and better accuracy.

Selecting the right warehouse management software features can be challenging without guidance. Check out popular vendors like Manhattan Supply Chain , SAP Warehouse Management and Logiwa when looking for:

Most warehouse managers define putaway as an inefficient warehouse process. However, this isn’t true. Strong putaway is necessary to increase efficiency and optimize warehouse operations. This process starts when the warehouse receives and stores items in the right location.

Proper putaway reduces the chances of misplaced items, speeds up picking processes and leads pickers to exactly where an item is stored.

There are four putaway methods to choose from according to the product type, SKUs, purchase order and storage location. Selecting a system that supports different kinds of putaway is a game changer. Look out for a system that offers:

7. Reports and Analytics

Many of the best warehouse management solutions provide features that aggregate business intelligence from warehouse operations. Real-time tracking is a major asset, particularly in maintaining inventory. It lets you view your inventory levels in real time, so you always know when you’re low on certain items or if you have more stock than necessary.

Other tools may filter data for KPI analysis and highlight improvement areas. Workflow management tools identify what’s happening within a warehouse and where attention is needed. Collecting high-quality data helps decision-makers change key business processes while also helping them prepare for the future.

In addition, many of the premier warehouse management software vendors offer multi-location tracking to work with multiple warehouses. Language, tax and multi-currency features are important for businesses that operate globally.

Keep an eye out for these helpful features:

8. Returns Management

Managing product returns is something every warehouse wants to avoid. Though it’s a lengthy process, prioritizing returns management eventually boosts customer satisfaction and is integral to maintaining a healthy supply chain.

Most companies prefer to partner with a third-party logistics provider (3PL) to manage and handle product returns. The only downside of partnering with 3PLs is the upfront costs. Another option could be using robust warehouse management systems to control your supply chain and handle fulfillment processes, including returns.

With WMS, you can automate and streamline these processes at every step: creating returns, updating stocks, generating reports, or issuing partial and full refunds. Check out the below warehouse management software features:

9. Order and Billing Management

A WMS can enhance order management by controlling the flow of products through your warehouse. Re-order features allow you to order parts or products that routinely need re-supply automatically.

Fishbowl WMS Cycle Count

An example of cycle counting in Fishbowl WMS. Source

Billing management tracks and captures client metrics like costs and billable services across multiple levels. This information includes cost data across activities such as inbound and outbound logistics, receiving, distribution and warehousing.

Look for some of these key features when selecting a warehouse management system:

10. Shipping

Shipping is a core function that all WMSs must support. You’ll also find specific features, like transportation management systems (TMS), that optimize shipments, handle planning and strengthen execution to improve shipping efficiency.

A broader goal of efficient shipping management is to boost customer satisfaction, reduce costs and gain real-time visibility. While most systems support multimodal and intermodal transportation, others focus on a single mode of transportation.

However, for a TMS to work efficiently, users need to integrate it with a WMS. TMS software can directly affect and improve warehouse management as an integral part of supply chain management. It helps manage multiple tasks simultaneously, including labor scheduling, load building, cross-docking and goods palletization.

If you’re looking for transport management functionalities in-built into a WMS solution, here are a few to keep in mind:

With a host of warehouse management tasks to keep track of, it can be easy to lose your way. Now that we’ve covered some vital warehouse management system requirements let’s go over some best practices. Even if you already have a running warehouse system, see if you can implement a few. The savings in time, work and money are well worth it.

WMS Best Practices

Organize, Organize, Organize

An unorganized warehouse costs your company extra time and money when picking and shipping orders. Do you have a strategy for goods placement? Are multiple SKUs separated or in bins with one another? Another thing you can do to improve organization is to look at the warehouse’s floor plan and draw out common paths workers take when loading, picking or packing.

Do they end up retracing their steps? Are commonly picked items nearby, or do they have to walk the length of the warehouse? If you can eliminate some of that extra time finding items, that alone will improve your warehouse’s efficiency.

Avoid Manual Data Entry

Are you still writing SKUs on a notepad or entering them manually into a computer? The potential to mistype and the time needed to write or type each number by hand adds up to a lot of extra overhead.

Many products have barcodes or SKUs that a scanner can pick up. Scanning a barcode and having it automatically entered into the system is a lot more reliable than doing it by hand, and it will get products off the dock and into your system quicker.

This idea goes for accounting tasks as well. Manually entering numerical data and doing calculations by hand is a recipe for disaster and a frustrated accounting team.

Prioritize Safety

Safety is of the utmost importance to anyone in warehouse operations management. Why? Aside from the obvious impact an injured employee faces, an accident on the job site can drastically harm an operation’s bottom line and affect your workplace’s reputation. A safe warehouse is an efficient warehouse, so make sure you are following these guidelines laid out by Camcode , a leading barcode provider:

Train Employees

Employee training goes hand in hand with workplace safety. Injuries are more likely to occur if your employees aren’t up to date with warehouse procedures. To mitigate this risk, ensure only trained employees operate machines like forklifts or cranes. It’s also important for employees to renew necessary credentials ASAP.

Choose the Right Software

At the end of the day, your team is only as good as its software. Make sure you do the proper research and take time to evaluate vendors and your own WMS requirements before implementing a warehouse operations management solution. Finding the best-fit software for your business can turn headaches into an efficient and optimized warehouse.

What Are Chef Presentation & Uniform Requirements?

Pastry vs. Savory Chef

Job duties of a cook in a health care facility, job interview attire for restaurants.

The excellence of a kitchen demands perfection not only in the food, but attention to sanitation and hygiene issues from those preparing it. Chefs working in a food establishment – whether it's fast food or fine dining – face specific requirements for uniforms and presentation. These requirements might vary depending on the establishment, type of food and state health department requirements. Regardless, following general guidelines showcases professionalism from the individual doing so.

Chef's Coat

A traditional, white chef’s coat is recognizable and lets customers and other employees know who belongs in the kitchen. It also serves as an important tool. Chef’s coats are made from heavy cotton, which protects the chef from the heat of kitchen appliances, such as ovens and stoves. The knotted buttons slip off easily, but do not melt or potentially pop off and land in food. White is the preferred color because it may be bleached if it gets stained by food, typically a daily occurrence.

Chef Uniform

In addition to a chef's coat, a kitchen uniform typically consists of pants and a hat, according to Corbara . Pants should have a straight leg, be hemmed to the top of the shoe and made from cotton. Shoes must be fully enclosed and skid-resistant, because kitchen spills are common. For the same reason, fabric or open-toed shoes are never permitted in the kitchen. While working, chefs must wear an apron – these may be waist or full bib style, depending on the kitchen’s requirements. Chef’s hats may be paper or cloth-style. Fine dining establishments may require their chefs to wear a neckerchief.

Personal Hygiene

Chefs come into direct contact with raw and prepared foods that are served to patrons, which requires them to maintain good personal hygiene at all times. Good hygiene habits include frequently washing hands – especially after exiting and entering the kitchen; brushing teeth; bathing daily; and ensuring that you're in good health before going to work. Cover cuts, sores and wounds with waterproof bandages and single-use, food-safe gloves. Chefs with stomach flu-like symptoms – vomiting, diarrhea or high fever – are not permitted to work.

Personal Appearance

Personal appearance guidelines vary depending on an establishment's policies. To stay in accordance with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration 's Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points – or HACCP – food-serving establishments must follow certain regulations. Jewelry – including tongue piercings and earrings – is typically not acceptable in the kitchen because it might fall into food or contribute to cross-contamination, according to the FDA.

Plain, smooth-banded rings may be worn if covered with an intact, single-use glove. Fingernail polish is prohibited because polish can easily flake off into food and result in food contamination. Hair must be pulled back and kept under a chef’s hat or hair net. In some establishments, beards must be trimmed to short stubble and covered with a beard net.

personal presentation requirements for warehouse

Here are 10 important factors to take into account regarding whether a potential warehouse will work for your company.

1. SKU and Sales Growth

One of the first questions that should be asked is what will happen with SKU growth. Companies often think about where they are currently, and how many SKU’s they have added recently. But you must take into account changes in the business and answer some of the following questions:

All of these factors figure into warehouse planning, specifically calculating the number of pallet positions and forward pick locations. It’s key to collaborate with the merchants to plan this accurately.

2. Inventory Turnover

Better management of inventory is critical so to not continually require more storage space to house dead inventory. This is an area that can be a challenge to many businesses as they may not have sufficient KPIs and analytics to support aged inventory reporting or excess stock on hand. Typically, we find that efficient businesses run around a 5% to 7% of inventory dollars that are deemed excess or aged – anything above 8% to 10% begins to lead to inefficiencies in the warehouse etc. Here are some of the questions that must be asked as part of this process:

If you remove excess and aged inventory from the inventory, how will that affect storage requirements if it is managed better?

Inventory turnover ratio has a huge effect on how much space you need. It’s important to understand the turnover by product and category. The merchants again need to be brought into the planning process so that excess and slow moving stock can be liquidated.

3. Think “cubic feet of the space” rather than just the building’s footprint

It’s surprising how many times management looks at space first in terms of its cost rather than the potential capacity in terms of cubic feet. Will your clear stack height be different in a new building? If so, how much vertical storage will this give you? Going from a building that’s 20’ clear stack height to 26’ is substantial in that you will be able to store an additional level of pallets. But translating how much space you currently have and what it equates to in a new facility with a higher clear stack is often times miscalculated. Think in terms of how many pallet locations are required and the other DC functions required.

4. Warehouse shape matters

We have consulted with clients on multi-floor facilities; a V shaped building; a building 1,000 ft. long and 200 ft. wide with expansion that would make the space 400 feet longer. All buildings can work but they may have serious efficiency downsides. Additionally, in vacant warehouses without racking, column positions can break up the pallet rack configuration and sprinkler systems have to be installed too. My point here is to consider doing the layout for the product workflow and the racking before committing to the building. Oddities can add costs, especially for picking.

5. Number and position of dock doors

Especially in a smaller distribution center, there often aren’t enough dock doors. How many do you need? Adding them later is generally prohibitive. Will you be loading outbound trailers while receiving inbound shipments? The number of doors and how the space is configured for inbound and outbound is key.

6. Material Handling Solutions and Automation

In the new building what types of material handling solutions and automation can your business afford to invest in and get a reasonable ROI? Will you go from a wider racking aisle to narrow aisle? Considering the automation aspects being considered and how does the footprint of the potential building measure up?

7. Warehouse Layout and Processes

All of this leads to the warehouse layout for the new space in terms of work and product flow, MHE use and automation to be employed. Three areas that typically need more consideration are: inbound receiving, QA and staging; returns processing and refurbishment; and forward pick configuration for the shortest pick path. Will you support new functions in the warehouse such as kitting or value added services? As you review your warehouse layout and process, how flexible is this warehouse to changes in size of products, their conveyability, growth, etc,?

8. Expansion of the building for growth

As your business grows, how can the new facility be expanded to meet your needs? How many years does this space have to last? Collaborate with the merchants on growth of the business in terms of sales and SKUs.

9. Some key metrics you’ll need for warehouse planning

To calculate bulk and forward picking storage locations: the number of SKUs, dollar inventory average and peak, inventory turnover ratio, planned SKU growth and obsolescence;

All of these will help you plan the new distribution center accordingly.

10. Consider professional warehouse planning assistance

Selecting the right warehouse has long term consequences in terms of efficiency and service to the customers. Many require 10 year leases or are purchase decisions. Consider hiring a consultant that can guide your decision and help you with these critical decisions. Many of these are critical calculations of space that are dependent on good planning by merchants and other senior management. Another set of eyes can help make a difference. These are just a few of the items that companies overlook when trying to estimate the required distribution center space. Be sure to spend the upfront time analyzing all facets of the business before buying or leasing a new building.

Safe Stacking Guidelines for Warehouses

Vector Facebook

February 20, 2018

Resource : blog industry : all industries tags : packaging and converting , vector ehs management.

Some of the most overlooked hazards in the workplace are caused by improper storage of materials. While the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) does not have a standard dedicated to the handling and storage of materials, they have a pamphlet for warehouses to follow.

This article highlights some of the most important guidelines in OSHA’s pamphlet for safe stacking and storage of materials. You'll also want to follow some essential warehouse safety tips to better improve workplace safety.

Safe Stacking Height

It should be no surprise that there are height limitations for stacking and storing materials in a warehouse. When a stack of pallets becomes too tall, it has less stability and is more likely to cause an injury when it falls.

The answer to “how high can you stack pallets in a warehouse?” is no more than 16 feet high if you are piling each piece on top of the other without the help of a machine. If you are using equipment such as a forklift truck, that number increases to 20 feet.

When it comes to the safety stacking height for boxes, a lot depends on different variables such as the contents of the box, its weight and size. Each warehouse will have its own height restrictions, which should be posted clearly and visibly around the warehouse.

As a general rule, all materials stored in tiers shall be stacked in blocks, interlocked and secured to prevent sliding or falling. Remember the higher items are stored, the more dangerous they become, so it’s always best to keep stacks short whenever possible.

Safe Stacking Techniques

There are a multitude of storage methods and techniques to safely stack materials in a warehouse.

Using block storage for warehouses tends to result in the safest stacks, provided weight and height limits are followed. This means stacking items in “blocks” using wood or plastic pallets one on top of each other.

Other safety tips may differ depending on the stacking method; whether you are stacking manually or with a forklift.

Manual Stacking

Items should be handled manually whenever possible in order to avoid the greater risk of injury that can come with powered industrial trucks. However, that doesn’t mean handling materials manually is free of hazards.

Workers should ensure that they have the proper training on safe lifting techniques and training on personal protective equipment (PPE) prior to moving materials manually. The age old “life with your legs, not your back” cannot be stressed enough. Proper warehouse safety training will help workers understand the dangers of improper lifting.

Employees should also be equipped with the right tools and PPE for manually lifting materials. This may include handles that attach to loads, and forearm protection, such as gloves, for loads with sharp or rough edges.

Forklift Stacking

Forklifts are an excellent way to avoid the potential injuries from manual stacking, but of course introduce their own (more dangerous) hazards. Much like manual stacking, it is critical forklift operators are properly trained. Only certified employees are allowed to operate forklifts.

Through training employees will know to place the load on the forklift as close to the mast as possible. This will help reduce the likelihood that the equipment will tip over and the items will fall off.

Employees will also have to meet OSHA's forklift inspection requirements before operating a forklift. Once in moving anywhere, such as across the warehouse floor, it’s important the load is adjusted to the lowest position possible.

Track Safe Stacking Progress

Warehouse safety goes beyond stacking and storage hazards. It’s important to track the successes, as well as the hazards, to get the full picture. It should be clear that multiple factors, particularly training, play an important role in the safety of employees.

It’s best to track the progress of employee safety through different safety metrics, such as number of training sessions, hazards reported, and incidents. This may seem like an overwhelming task, but safety management software is available to assist. When you’re able to see the full picture, you may notice safe stacking become a regular occurrence on the floor!
