MGT496 week 3 paper

Chapter 7 provides a detailed discussion of warehouse health and safety risks. These include risks associated with layout, floors, heating, noise, housekeeping and fire. Review these risks, and in a two- to three-page paper (not including the title and reference pages), present a risk assessment of a warehouse. If you do not have access to a local warehouse, you can use a buyers’ club (i.e., Costco or Sam’s Club) as a substitute. In addition, for each risk identified, present at least one recommendation on how to mitigate that risk.Your paper must be formatted according to APA style as outlined in the approved APA style guide and should cite at least two scholarly sources in addition to the textbook.
