Warehouse managerWarehouse orders are up all over the country. And now more than ever, safe workspaces are essential to keeping employees and staying in business. Take these 3 steps today to keep your personnel safe, and your orders speedily filled.

Your warehouse has specific needs. Are you sure you’re using the best equipment to meet those needs? Because no matter your industry, as you prep orders and store products, taking these 3 Steps puts you in position to succeed, safely.

Invest in High-Quality Order Pickers

Stock Pickers, also known as Order Pickers have rapidly increased in popularity lately. This is due largely to warehouse orders being up significantly, but customers ordering in smaller quantities. As a result, warehouses must have a safe, effective process for employees to pick stock from high elevations.

The right Order Picker changes the time spent moving through the warehouse and fulfilling orders, and it reduces the safety risk of your company’s most valuable resource- its employees.

In addition, Stock Pickers can be used for any repetitive action in the warehouse – such as navigation, or cleaning. Koke Inc. can customize Stock Pickers and Order Picker Platforms for your warehouse size and specific needs. If you don’t see what you are looking for – ask. Remember, our team of engineers is committed to solving problems and finding answers for the movement, protection and storage of your warehouse materials.

Purchase the Right Safety Baskets

Your warehouse needs Man Baskets known for their quality and long service life. Unlike products sold by internet companies that are not built to code and fail audits, Koke Inc. safety baskets meet the highest OSHA safety regulations. Be sure to research before you buy! Koke Inc. ships each safety basket already assembled and ready to use. Man Baskets are painted yellow for high visibility.

Construction Man Baskets lift workers in the air using a telehandler and require the use. Forklift Man Baskets lift workers in the air using a forklift, attached to the basket by a safety chain. Each safety basket, regardless of type, is painted yellow and requires the use of a safety harness with lanyard.
