    Particular dangers associated with working in a warehouse


    No matter the industry you work in, there is always a risk of accidents at work occurring. While there are general work-related accidents that occur across most sectors, some industries present higher-risk or sector-specific hazards.

    When working in a warehouse, there are some dangers presented to employees that are especially hazardous, or high risk, due to the nature of the duties involved.

    The dangers of working in a warehouse

    There are a number of standard dangers presented to individuals working in a warehouse. These include, but are not limited to:

    • Falls from height while racking or storing items
    • Manual handling injuries caused by movement of objects, for example from cartons to pallets
    • General slips, trips and falls when working in a warehouse, over debris or due to spillages
    • Head injuries caused when struck by falling objects when racking or moving objects
    • Lift truck related injuries specific to working in a warehouse, such as collisions due to cramped areas

    Who is to blame for my accident when working in a warehouse?

    No matter your line of employment, when you are working in a warehouse, your employer is legally obliged to protect your health and safety by maintaining a safe work environment and monitoring conditions through risk assessments.

    If you feel your accident was caused through no fault of your own but was situational due to inadequate housekeeping or lack of sufficient universal workplace standards, for example, your employer could have failed in their legal obligation to protect your health and safety and could be held liable for the injury and/or illness you have sustained.
