As you talk with different Houston warehouse companies, you will want to make sure they are guarded against some of the common dangers a warehouse can experience.
What are some of those dangers? Here they are in no particular order:
- Electrical fire. Be sure to ask the company about their electrical wiring. Do they inspect it carefully, or have someone do it for them, on a regular basis? You don’t want your inventory to get incinerated unexpectedly!
- Dock accidents. These are by far the second most common danger. Although one of these accidents won’t result in your company’s inventory getting totally annihilated, if a forklift, truck, or worker is careless or the victim of someone else’s carelessness, not only will he or she get harmed, but your inventory may be damaged as a result.
