New Safety & Compliance Course Now Available in the WERC Distribution Logistics Leader Program

Wednesday, January 3, 2024

The Warehousing Education & Research Council (WERC) is pleased to announce the release of an online Safety & Compliance course. This course follows the successful launch of the Distribution Logistics Fundamentals and Equipment modules earlier this year. These three courses are part of a series of six that lead to a WERC certificate for warehousing education.

The new Safety & Compliance course is tailored to train employees on distribution logistics regulations and US compliance, along with an overview of important compliance requirements from OSHA, EPA, DOT, and FDA. Participants will gain a deep understanding of how different types of compliance are required in warehouses and distribution centers, which contribute to the overall safety of distribution logistics operations.

Key topics covered in the Safety & Compliance course include:

• Overview of fire safety programs, HAZMAT safety training, personnel safety training, and other safety measures
• Requirements and standards for good housekeeping practices, accident responses, risk assessments, and regular self-audits

The content of this virtual course includes interactive activities and learning content for review. It also builds on valuable insights from the previous courses, Distribution Logistics Fundamentals and Distribution Logistics Equipment.

Upon completing this Safety & Compliance course, participants will earn a certificate and a digital badge to display on their LinkedIn profiles and email signatures. The six-part series culminates in a WERC certificate for education.
