An emphasis on safety can generate cost savings - both direct and indirect. A series of relatively minor incidents can still seriously injure employees and lead to lost productivity, higher insurance bills and government fines. Although not usually severe, warehouse accidents are numerous - the warehousing industry experiences nearly 15,000 injuries and illnesses each year, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Investing in safety in general, is a smart move. The average cost of a recordable injury in the United States is $35,000, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.

Maintaining a robust safety culture is a continuous effort. Southshore understands that safety is not a one-time deal. Emphasizing safety throughout the company continuously has a positive influence on our success.  We stress that safety is not separate from what warehouse employees do every day. Safety is a key aspect of how our employees do their job, and that's the mindset we must have.
