Warehouse Worker Safety Training

Warehouses that store and distribute large amounts of materials can be excellent opportunities for employment, but the physical nature of the work and use of large, complex machinery means a higher risk of injury for workers. Material handlers and order pickers are confronted with hazardous materials and strenuous labor all day long. Below, you’ll find a list of warehouse safety training topics that are required for most Warehouse Workers.
