Warehouse staff safety is critical, but the development of the Warehouse Staff Safety Guide marks the first time clear guidance on how to secure staff safety in the warehouse became available. Project Concern International (PCI) developed this unique tool to provide international development organizations with information, recommendations, and materials to promote safety in warehouses where food commodities are stored, with the overall objective of reducing staff illness and injury in the warehouse. In addition to staff safety, the guide also helps organizations increase staff capacity and knowledge of proper warehouse management. The process for creating the guide and posters was a true collaboration of the entire commodity management community. In total, over 75 individuals working for various implementers and USAID were involved in the development and review processes of the guide and posters. The guide and posters were launched on November 19, 2014, at a TOPS/FSN Network Commodity Management Task Force meeting at PCI headquarters in Washington, DC.
