A recent report from the UK Warehouse Association (UKWA) has raised concerns for workers in factories and warehouses stockpiling in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
Some businesses are panicking and ordering goods from overseas in larger numbers to safeguard against shortages after the departure date on 31st October.

With record demand for warehousing space and a dramatic spike in consignments needing to be processed every day, there is an increased risk of musculoskeletal injuries in the workforce.
Without the appropriate lifting and moving equipment, these repetitive tasks can lead to strains and injuries which will put more strain on workforces.
