WAREHOUSING AND LOGISTICS: MINIMIZING THE RISK OF EXPOSURE TO COVID-19

 

MANAGING THE RISKS OF EXPOSURE TO COVID-19

 

PHYSICAL DISTANCING

 

Physical distancing – keeping everyone at the workplace at least 1.5 metres physically apart – will be challenging in some warehouses and logistics activities, but it is a key measure to minimise the spread of COVID-19.
 
 
• Limit physical interactions between workers and other persons
 
 
 
• Workers who can work from home (e.g. office staff) should work from home
 
 
• Review tasks and processes that usually require close interaction and identify ways to modify these to increase physical distancing between workers where practical and safe to do so
 
 
• Postpone non-essential gatherings or training
 
 
• For essential gatherings, conduct in spaces that enable workers to keep the required physical distance of at least 1.5 metres, ideally outdoor spaces
 
 
• Split workers’ shifts to reduce the number of workers onsite at any given time
 
 
• Allow additional time between shifts to limit staff interaction and enable time for cleaning and disinfecting
 
 
• Use methods such as mobile phone or radio to communicate
 
 
• Reduce the number of workers utilising common areas at a given time (e.g. by staggering meal breaks and start times and encouraging workers to eat and take breaks outside where possible).
 
 
• Spread out furniture in common areas
 
 
• Put policies in place to eliminate close contact between delivery workers, customers and warehouse and logistics (e.g. contactless collections and deliveries, using email or photographs instead of requiring signatures for acceptance of collections and delivery)
 
 
• Eliminate or limit visitors to warehouses. Conduct meetings by photo or video conference where required
 
 
• Limit worker numbers
 
 
• Reduce the number of tasks to be completed each day
 
 
• Postpone non-essential work
 
 
• Place signage about physical distancing around the workplace
 
 
• Consider if plant can be used to reduce the number of workers interacting
 
 
Nominate responsible persons to make sure your workers are following the rules for physical distancing.
 
 
If physical distancing measures introduce new health and safety risks (e.g. because they impact communication), you need to manage those risks too.
