Technology Drives Efficiency but Can Pose Risks

With e-commerce on the rise, the logistics sector is in high demand and facilities are feeling the pressure to keep up.

To remain competitive, warehouses and distribution centers are faced with growing pressure to improve utilization and increase throughput, efficiency, and profitability at their facilities. While the introduction of smart technology and automation has allowed for greater operational efficiencies, it has also resulted in a fast-paced work environment where safety becomes secondary.

This fast-paced environment can quickly become hazardous for facility personnel. The loading dock is an especially dangerous area, accounting for 25% of all industrial accidents. Additionally, 600 near misses are estimated to occur for every accident at the loading dock.
