Logistics

The logistics industry comprises workers in transport & distribution (via air, road, rail, & water), storage & warehousing, and postal & courier services. Logistics worker safety is traditionally in need of improvement.

Non-fatal injuries to employees in logistics, 2019/2020:

  • Slips, Trips and Falls 32% 32%
  • Lifting and Handling 23% 23%
  • Fall From Height 20% 20%
  • Struck by Moving Object 11% 11%

Other risks include exposure to flammable products, fumes and chemical emissions, fire and explosions, contact with hazardous materials/wastes, working in confined spaces and over long periods of time.

The logistics industry’s health & safety performance is worse than average – the non-fatal injuries rate is almost double the all-industries rate, and the rate of musculoskeletal disorders is 50% higher than the all-industries rate due to poor handling and lifting practices, continued periods of high exertion or the need for long-term repetitive movements.
