What are the safety considerations when implementing partitioning in automated warehouses?

When implementing partitioning in automated warehouses, several safety considerations are crucial to ensure a secure and efficient environment. Firstly, assess the layout and traffic flow to minimise collisions between automated equipment and workers. Implementing designated walkways and implementing proper signage can mitigate such risks. Secondly, ensure adequate fire protection and emergency exits, as partitioning can alter fire dynamics and evacuation routes. Thirdly, consider the stability and durability of partition materials to withstand potential impacts from automation equipment. Lastly, conduct regular maintenance checks to identify and address any structural or operational issues, ensuring the longevity of the partitioning system and overall warehouse safety. By considering these factors, one can create a secure and productive automated warehouse environment.
