In 2021, the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) published a proposed rule for heat injury and prevention in both outdoor and indoor workplaces.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has announced a national program geared towards warehouses, processing facilities, distribution centers, and high-risk retail establishments.
With more than 26 million electric vehicles (EVs) expected on U.S. roads by 2030, now’s the time to start planning for EV chargers at your facility. For commercial applications — including powering a fleet of work vehicles and EV charging for customers — Level 2 chargers are often the most cost-effective choice.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is undertaking a proposed rulemaking process that may lead to new standards for workplace heat stress.
Scissor lifts are frequently used as work platforms — and anytime you’re asking workers to use heavy equipment, you need to think about compliance with relevant standards from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
Operating forklifts — or even working around them — can be dangerous. In 2021, 70 workers lost their lives in forklift accidents. The previous year, more than 7,000 people were injured. According to the National Safety Council, more than half of these forklift injuries were the result of “transportation incidents.”
Typical loading docks have a 4-foot drop-off, which can be dangerous to workers and equipment. This is not hypothetical: Forklift operators have been fatally injured by falls from loading docks, and it’s difficult to overstate the hazard posed by an open dock door.
Custom industrial equipment can optimize space, improve throughput, and save money — but to enjoy the benefits, you’ll need to work with an experienced partner that understands how your facility works.
When material handling professionals need new equipment, it’s easy to miss the forest for the trees. Challenges tend to show up in specific ways, which encourages us to reach for specific solutions: A new Conveyor here, a replacement Lift Table there.
These days, many types of organizations may invest in electric vehicle (EV) charging stations. Utility companies operate public EV charging stations. Fleet owners may install a whole system to keep their EVs ready to roll. But increasingly, owners of commercial properties — and the businesses they rent to — are installing EV charging stations, too.
