To help understand the current state of the temperature-controlled warehouse industry with regard to safety culture, awareness of available safety resources, ongoing safety training, and resulting impact of safety activities and programs, the Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA) conducted a survey between January and March 2020. Overall, survey respondents had a very positive perception of the safety of their workplace environments and current level of safety training.
Dominic DiCarlo the VP of Safety & Compliance at Lineage Logistics and the GCCA Safety and Compliance Committee Chair commented, "Our team members are our greatest assets and it is our duty as leaders to protect those assets to the greatest extent possible. This is one reason why a strong safety culture is an extremely value added component to any company. There are no shortages of workplace hazards in the global food supply chain; whether it be anhydrous ammonia, food safety, or operating material handling equipment, there are plenty of opportunity to expose our employees and customers to risk. The good news is with the proper processes, tools, checks and balances, we can mitigate these hazards."
DiCarlo comment about the report, "In an effort to provide the most value added services to the GCCA’s member organizations, the GCCA Safety and Compliance Committee sent out a Workplace Safety Survey during the first quarter of 2020 to identify what our employees feel we’re all doing well and more importantly what we can do to improve our safety culture. The GCCA Safety and Compliance Committee is committed to taking the survey results and work together as a team to identify and share best practices so that we can all have world class safety performance. Please do not hesitate to reach out to the committee for any support. After all, when it comes to safety, we’re all on the same team."
