Building a new extension

We loved our house from the first time we went through, but it really didn't have enough living space. We have worked on improving the layout of the home and increasing the living area of the home to create a modern and more pleasant layout to the home. We are really proud of how the job has turned out and we wanted to share some of the details of how the extension and layout changes where designed and constructed. This blog has some of the photos of our extension as well as tips that we have learnt along the journey,.

Why Use a Hiring Company for Warehouse Labour?

Construction & Contractors Blog

Warehouse labour may not seem very specialised to you; company owners may assume that working in a warehouse simply means stocking shelves and pulling inventory when needed. However, jobs found in the warehousing industry are often more complicated than that, and hiring warehouse labour on your own can also be more complicated than you realise. There are some very good reasons why you should leave this to a hiring company.

Specialised work

A warehouse worker usually does more than just stock shelves and pull items; you may need forklift drivers, those who can perform inventory, and those who can work a counter at a warehouse. These are all specialised tasks that take certain skills and experience. Additionally, forklift drivers and those who work other such equipment usually need special licenses. Inventory management usually involves using certain software programs that are meant for inventory in particular, along with the devices used for counting and maintaining inventory.

Trying to hire the right staff for these various positions can be a challenge, especially if you don't realise the skills needed. A labour hire company can ensure that you are sent staff with experience in each of these areas and individuals who can manage them properly and be properly licensed and trained for operating the equipment found in most warehouses.

Safety procedures

Even warehouses need to consider certain safety procedures, whether or not they're connected to production facilities. Trying to hire and then train staff on the procedures they will need to follow to stay safe in a warehouse, including being mindful of traffic lanes for forklifts and proper procedures for using personnel lifts to access higher shelving, can take time. A warehouse labour company usually will have these training classes included as part of their hiring process, so you know your staff will always be safe and also keep everyone else safe on the warehouse floor.

Immediate staff

Unfortunately, industries like warehousing often see a high turnover in staff, and this can mean a slowdown in your order fulfilment. Using a warehousing labour hire company can mean having replacement staff available at a moment's notice. Such a company will have already screened their potential employees and have tested and trained them, so you can have someone on the warehouse floor to replace your staff or fill out your current staff at a moment's notice, without having to take the time to handle all these processes on your own.
