OSHA announces national emphasis program for warehouses, distribution centers

July 14, 2023

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration on Thursday launched a national emphasis program to prevent workplace hazards in warehouses, processing facilities, distribution centers and other “high-risk retail” establishments.

OSHA says the program is in response to the growth in warehousing and distribution centers, paralleled by increases in workplace accidents, citing Bureau of Labor Statistics data that show injury and illness rates for these establishments are higher than in private industry overall and, in some sectors, more than twice the rate of private industry.
