MARCOM's Video On Demand (VOD) program on Warehouse Safety helps employees to stay safe by identifying the specific hazards they can encounter while working in a warehouse, and providing them with the practical procedures that they can use to avoid them. Warehouses are very busy places… and that can give rise to a lot of hazardous situations.
