Safety, Sanitation and Housekeeping

  • Kenneth B. Ackerman


In 1970, a law that became known at the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) cleared Congress. This piece of legislation had a substantial effect on the warehousing industry, as well as on many other industries where accidents are a serious risk. For their first decade, the OSHA laws were enforced stringently, with the warehousing industry frequently found to be in violation. In one survey, nearly one-third of responding public warehouse operators indicated that they had received recent OSHA inspections, while more than half of those inspected received some sort of citation for a safety violation. Although no figures are available on private warehouses alone, it is doubtful if their safety procedures were any better.
