Warehouses and powered industrial equipment
With a rise in online shopping, our society has become increasingly dependent upon warehouse workers to fulfill order. Many of these hardworking warehouse employees using powered industrial equipment to move and fulfill products. Warehouses are full of forklifts that are busily racing around the facility, cherry pickers that are moving products up high, and much more industrial power equipment that pose constant risks to operators and other warehouse workers.
Common injuries for warehouse workers
Consider the frantic pace of stocking and fulfillment in warehouses. It can be quite frantic at times, and this creates potential danger throughout the day. Injuries from powered industrial equipment such as forklifts and cherry pickers can include:
- Head injuries, including traumatic brain injuries
