How To Keep Your Warehouse Safe

Warehouses are busy, buzzing hives of activity.  They are the heartbeat and lifeblood of your organization, moving your product quickly from one place to another, or helping to push your items out to customers.  The importance of being efficient can't be understated, but safety is even more pressing.  How to keep your warehouse safe is the question at the top of the mind of any great warehouse manager.

One way to keep your warehouse safe is to use stack racks made with real steel.  It's really important to know that your storage system will be solid for years, and Tier-Rack is the best at it.  Tier-Rack racks are made with the highest-quality steel and are built to last.  We also are the industry leader in rack engineering, and can help you build a safer and more efficient warehouse.
After you get your stackable racks, here are some other ways to maximize your space:
Be methodical when stacking items such that they are always in the same order, in a way that compliments each other. Doing this creates an order that allows easy retrieval, encouraging employees to more easily find items and to find them using the same, repeatable process, which creates efficiency over time. And, you are less likely to lose items and less likely to have spoilage of items that have a shorter shelf life while optimizing space available, which will create more shelf space for inventory storage.
Keep the space clean in your warehouse such that it is free of any unneeded items. If you organize your building in a way that maximises the given area, you can greatly improve the flow and efficiency of movement. More areas can be used when items are set in an area specifically designated for those items. The position and arrangement of the items greatly affects the available space given to you. A metric that is often used to measure this efficiency is “inventory turns.” The greater the number, the more times you are replenishing your inventory and making greater efficiency of your inventory space.
Think carefully and highly value every space used for any warehouse storage needs. If an item isn’t really needed to be stored locally, remove it. Only using space you truly need significantly improves the number of items you can fit in any given building, increasing efficiency and avoiding unnecessary expansion. Doing this can also help lower the cost for the maintenance and security of the facility you maintain.
Knowing your space and using it properly is the key to safe, efficient warehouse usage.
