Moving goods safely

The primary focus of Moving goods safely is to prevent injuries and ill health to delivery drivers, warehouse staff and others involved in the distribution or receipt of goods. The safe collection and delivery of goods requires the co-operation and exchange of information between everyone involved in the supply chain.

How we work

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) works in partnership with Local Authorities (LAs) to ensure a consistent approach throughout the supply chain.

LAs inspect retail premises, warehouses and wholesale distribution, whilst HSE inspects manufacturers, road haulage, pallet networks and home delivery firms.
