Lighting is Key to On-Site Warehouse Safety in Winter, Says Midland Pallet Trucks

Midland Pallet Trucks has issued a timely reminder that lighting is one of the most important factors when it comes to warehouse safety as the winter period and darker nights draw closer.

As a supplier of quality hand pallet trucksmanual stacker trucks and other specialist truck solutions for the warehouse and logistics industry, Midland Pallet Trucks has deep insight into the sector.

It sees lighting as one area where many warehouse environments fall short when it comes to safety.

The firm, aware of importance of adequate, full-coverage lighting from their experience with their own 60,000 square foot warehouse, is keen to stress the importance of lighting and how it massively affect safety standards. As such, they’ve made some actionable recommendations for the sector.

Midland Pallet Trucks points to the need for organisations to access and appraise the latest lighting systems available to the market. As the usage of a warehouse environment can vary depending on shifts, time and other factors, it’s essential for firms to find the right solution for their particular needs.

The latest anti-glare developments in LED lighting can deliver economical lighting without the risk of accidents due to unexpected glare. But the firm is also at pains to point out that warehouses carry unique challenges when it comes to lighting, with open spaces, narrow access points and elevated working positions all present. What this means is a need for a specialist industrial lighting solution that understands these needs.

One of the main areas of focus, according to Midland Pallet Trucks, should be an in-depth consultation with workers about their issues, needs and requirements. The investment in lighting systems must meet worker needs, the firm cautions, as they are the people most at risk when inadequate or poorly placed lighting is an issue.

Phil Chesworth, Managing Director of Midland Pallet Trucks, said, “We know from experience that getting warehouse lighting right is no easy task. When you have a huge space to light with narrower aisles and other areas to light, plus machinery and equipment running, ensuring the right coverage is very difficult. But, at the same time, it’s a hugely important part of workplace safety.

“In an environment where you have workers moving heavy loads, accessing high shelves and generally doing their jobs, no organisation can afford to have dim or inadequate lighting. And it’s also vital to ensure that lights are blinding workers with glare because that’s just as dangerous. These are all reasons why we advise taking a broad overview at first, consulting with workers and then implementing a well-planned lighting design and layout to ensure goods get from A to B safely and undamaged.”
