At Fair Food, on Rosebank Road, Avondale, the warehouse has been equipped with stainless-steel sorting tables, nonslip mats and colourful plastic tubs for kitchen sorting and compost.
“I’d like to thank all three local boards for their support, which allowed us to improve the health and safety of our warehouse work environment,” says Fair Food General Manager, Michelle Blau.
“This included making all the stainless-steel sorting tables the same to streamline the experience and reduce risk through consistency. We also added nonslip mats, so the floor surfaces are even, and people aren’t standing on the hard concrete for hours.
“More plastic tubs were added for kitchen sorting and compost, so volunteers don’t overfill them, making the tubs too heavy to safely lift.
