Goods Receiving

Goods receiving requires high impact flooring

Your company’s goods receiving area can be the highest traffic impact area of your facility. Delivery trucks arriving, forklifts unloading, palletising and storage of materials and pedestrian traffic all add to the wear and tear of your floor. Without specialised high impact flooring, surfaces become damaged and uneven.

Injury risk in manufacturing industries

The manufacturing industry has one of the highest rates of injury claims of all industries. Where there is a lot of activity and movement – such as in goods receiving – there is increased risk of injury and fatality. Two of the most common causes of injury claim are:

  • Being hit by moving objects (18%)
  • Falls, trip and slips (15%)

Three of the most common causes of fatality are:

  • Vehicle incidents (21%)
  • Being hit by falling or moving objects (21%)
  • Long term contact with chemicals and substances (20%)
