Warehouse Health and safety cartoon – spot the hazards in a warehouse.

How many warehouse hazards can you spot? Train your warehouse staff with this cartoon – a health and safety cartoon can save accidents. Use it as a quiz in your training programs.

Ensure that your team are trained on safety procedures and consistently stick to them. Growing complacent or careless over time can lead to accidents that could have easily been prevented. Health and safety cartoons like the one below can be used as a refresher.

You can purchase a licence to use this cartoon in your training at my sister website: SafetyCartoon.com

This cartoon measures 59.4cm x 42cm (A2 size) and can be printed out poster size for you to educate your staff in your training programmes.

Forklift truck health and safety tips – cartoon whiteboard animation video

Forklift truck safety hazards…

Some things to consider…

Always wear a seat belt – One quarter of all forklift accidents are caused due to a forklift truck tipping over. Make sure that your forklift is well maintained. Each forklift is maintained according to the manufacturer’s specifications. Make sure speed limits are observed and enforced. Reduce speed to walking pace taking into consideration congestion, vision, other vehicles and pedestrians. Obstacles – An untidy warehouse is a nightmare for a forklift truck operator. Obstacles such as pallets, stock or other equipment are common occurrences in busy warehouses. Never use a mobile phone whilst operating a forklift truck – EVER!
