The management of any warehouse or stores needs an effective labelling and identification system. Stock needs to be identified and in its rightful place in order to maximise order picking and minimise costly errors. Workplace Equipment Store offer a wide range of warehouse identification products and labelling solutions from the BEAVERSWOOD brand - a one stop shop for all your warehouse labelling and identification needs.

It is understood that many picker and packer workers working in an environment where an ineffective system operates, waste a large proportion of their time trying to pick goods that are not in their rightful place. This also leads to an increase in picking errors. These errors hurt every aspect of the business as not only does it lead to having to reprocess the order, sometimes involving credits, re-invoicing and re-despatch, taking up lots of precious time it could also lower customer retention.

For many SME’s having a full blown barcoded order picking system isn’t feasible due to the costs and as a result most business retain their existing systems which often become antiquated as a result of changes in product, market fluctuations and warehouses practices. A small outlay to produce a labelling system can help in achieving lower picking times, lower errors and often help in increasing customer satisfaction and retention.

Legislation states that, as well as having an effective labelling system, you must warn staff and visitors of hazards within the premises. According to statistics, deaths at work are on the rise, one worker is killed every six weeks and many more are injured as a direct result of forklift accidents. Having set pedestrianised routes/areas and visible forklift warning signs will help reduce the likelihood of any incidents occurring. See our range of handy  FLOOR MARKERS.

To further aid demarcation, products such as floor signalling can be used which help highlight walkways, traffic flow, pallet positions and general marking on the warehouse floor. Available in a choice of 6 colours, these floor labels are a simple but effective solution for floor marking.

Over the last few years there has been a significant growth in companies adopting 5S and LEAN manufacturing policies. The 5S focus is on Sort, Set in order, Shine, Standardise and Sustain. Companies adopting these policies achieve higher operational results by sustaining a productive work environment, reducing waste, helping reduce accidents and lowering unplanned downtime.

To manage warehouse waste and maintain 5S standards adding RACKSACKS to the end of racking help waste segregation, promotes a cleaner green environment with less clutter/waste products being on the floor possibly leading to lower accidents. RACKSACK waste recycling sacks are available in 14 standard designs and can also be produced with special prints/logos/design.
