Don’t ignore your warehouse floor!

September 20, 2021

Neglected Warehouse Floor JointWhy damaged joints, cracks and surface defects in your concrete warehouse floor could cost you money.

So, you’ve invested in technology and management systems to improve your levels of efficiency, customer service, and overall performance. But what about your warehouse floor?

Too often our customer’s warehouse floors are overlooked, yet without a well-maintained concrete floor your Materials Handling Equipment (MHE) performance will take a dive and your staff performance may also be affected.

Too often we see that damaged floor joints, cracks and surface defects are left untreated for as long as possible, until they can no longer be ignored. This always leads to more expensive repairs being required, not to mention the cost of increased forklift truck maintenance and the risk of personal injury to staff.

What could be the true cost of ignoring your warehouse floor?

  1. Operational Performance – Damaged floors will result in the MHE
    operating at slower speeds, ultimately impacting on warehouse efficiency.
  2. Equipment Damage – Your forklift trucks can suffer wheel, bearing and
    suspension damage.
  3. Health & Safety – Driver fatigue and the risk of injury to staff, customers
    and visitors.
  4. Tenancy Issues – If leasing or renting your premises, it is likely you have a
    maintenance clause included in your lease contract. Your business could be
    liable for any damage.
  5. Quality Assurance (QA) Audits – In some industries, for instance food,
    pharmaceutical and chemical, damaged flooring may be viewed as a negative,
    and result in you failing a QA Audit.
