  • The danger of potential collisions between pedestrians and handling equipment: On a day-to-day basis, forklift drivers have to operate their handling equipment in areas of the warehouse where other employees have to walk to carry out various tasks (e.g. order-pickers, who can potentially walk through all the aisles of the warehouse to pick the various goods to be dispatched). However, having handling equipment operating in close proximity to people on foot inevitably creates a risk of collision. A collision between handling equipment and a company employee on foot in the warehouse can occur at any time of the year, and cannot be predicted in advance. However, a number of factors increase the likelihood of such an accident occurring: failure to create a separate traffic zone for handling equipment and another for pedestrians, working in a hurry (e.g. a pedestrian running), pedestrians not wearing fluorescent vests, etc. Collisions between handling equipment and pedestrians can result in the crushing of one or more of the person's limbs: feet (crushed by a wheel), legs (struck by a fork) or even the entire torso (against a rack or warehouse wall). Damage is often severe, with fractures, haemorrhaging and crushed limbs. In the most serious cases, these accidents can lead to the death of the pedestrian.


  • The danger of repetitive movements for order pickers: Order pickers have to perform numerous repetitive movements on a daily basis. These repetitive movements are necessary to pick the various items in the warehouse in preparation for shipment. Indeed, when picking items, the order picker's arms, forearms and wrists are called upon many times to fetch the item (extension gesture) and then to bring the item back to the picker (pulling gesture). Risks linked to repetitive gestures are a daily occurrence for order pickers. Working in cold environments (e.g. warehouses in winter) is an aggravating factor in the damage caused by repetitive movements. Not rotating tasks between colleagues is also an aggravating factor, as the impact of repetitive movements will always be exerted on the same person, rather than being spread over several people. In the short term, repetitive movements cause joint pain, mainly in the shoulders, arms, elbows, forearms, wrists and hands. In the long term, repetitive movements can lead to Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) in the upper limbs: shoulders (tendonitis), elbows (epicondylitis, tendon damage), hands and wrists (carpal tunnel syndrome) and even the back (spine and lumbar region).


  • The danger of cuts when opening cartons for order receivers: Receivers are exposed to the risk of cuts when opening the packaging of delivered goods. As goods arrive on pallets and/or in celled and/or taped cartons, it is necessary to use a blunt object to open them (e.g. traditional cutter, safety cutter with retractable blade, etc.). During this operation, it is possible that the receiver may be injured, sometimes seriously, by the tool used. The risk of cuts is a daily occurrence for receptionists... [End of extract]
