Why do Warehouse Workers need CPD?

CPD Guide for Warehouse Workers

A warehouse worker is an individual who is responsible for receiving, storing and distributing materials and products within a warehouse setting. They can work internally for a single company, or work in partnership with many other companies as a courier to help ensure the safe delivery of products to customers and businesses. This may involve tasks such as loading and unloading trucks, organising and inventorying stock, and operating machinery and equipment. You might load and pack a variety of materials including boxes, pallets, containers and equipment, but the specific types of materials will depend on the type of warehouse and products being stored. The work setting can vary in size vastly, from working in large import and export warehouses on airport facilities, to small businesses picking and packing products for customer sales.

I learnt a lot and the course opened my eyes to the kind of companies I use to work for and how hazardous they really were.

Great course. Really informative. A VERY useful tool to enhance the theoretical side of my extensive practical knowledge and thus meet LOLER/PUWER AND HSE regulations, in my job.

James Moore

It was worth it and I’m appreciative of online courses like these. Totally worth it.

A guide to CPD for Warehouse Workers

There is a strong sense of teamwork in the role of a warehouse worker. This is because each person plays an important part in a team to get the job completed. If only one person were to complete each task, the job would take an extremely long time to complete and be more physically demanding. Having a team to work in a warehouse allows tasks to be separated and work to be completed more efficiently.

A variety of tasks are required for a warehouse to run successfully such as:

  • Receiving and processing the goods that are to enter the warehouse. In this role the worker must check that the materials being delivered are the same as the materials that were expected.
  • Keeping a clean and safe working environment to ensure that space is maximised.
  • Completing stock checks and ensuring that the inventory is controlled and audited.
  • Operating and maintaining warehouse machinery and equipment. This often requires additional training and licences.
  • Picking and packing to prepare for distribution.
  • Following quality service standards and complying with rules and regulations.

 

Specific training requirements for warehouse workers may vary depending on the employer and the specific warehouse task. However, common training that may be required includes manual handling, health and safety, and forklift operation. It is best to check with your specific employer for their training requirements.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) can help warehouse workers to improve their skills so that they can work their way up to different tasks in the warehouse. It is a form of continuous learning that you can do whilst you are already working in the job, and there are many different types of training activities that you can do to count towards your CPD.

Some different types of CPD training include:

  • Completing a CPD course.
  • Attending a CPD workshop.
  • Job shadowing another colleague.
  • Conducting your own research.
  • Listening to a podcast.
  • Attending a conference.

 

CPD certificates

All of our CPD courses are accredited with the relevant regulatory body which means that your course content will contain accurate, up-to-date information on your topic area in line with true industry guidelines. As you work through your CPD course, you will cover various sections split into different topics before coming to an end of course quiz. Upon completing the quiz successfully, you will get immediate access to your CPD certificate. This certifies that you have successfully completed the course and are viewed as more competent in your chosen subject area. You should keep your CPD certificate safe to refer back to in future and to show as evidence to employers and industry regulators.

Logging CPD hours 

Whenever you work on your CPD course you should note down the time that you spend on it. This can then form part of a log of your CPD hours. Keeping a log of CPD hours can be used as evidence of the CPD training that you have completed. Some industries require a certain number of hours to be spent on CPD training each year, so by keeping a running log you can easily keep organised with this.

Keeping evidence 

Your CPD certificate and your log of CPD hours form part of your CPD evidence. Keeping evidence of your CPD proves what training you have completed. We advise you to keep a hard copy of your evidence or an electronic copy and form a CPD portfolio which will be a complete record of all of your CPD training.

Renewing CPD certificates

Once you have completed your CPD course and obtained your certificate, this will be valid for a couple of years. There can be many changes and updates to health and safety and working practices which means that you may have to complete a refresher of your CPD course so that you can show that your knowledge in the subject area is up to date. We advise you to renew your CPD certificate every two years by simply completing an updated version of the course.
