In every warehouse, processes are carried out that have a static and dynamic character. They take place in a variable environment, which is planned and random, caused by various threats. A helpful tool that allows you to effectively manage warehouse management in a safe way is the analysis of everything that is related to the processes carried out in crisis situations. Previous analyzes conducted in Poland suggested that this area requires further research, which was presented in four sub-chapters: three theoretical and one practical. The aim of the work was to identify and evaluate tools and practices that positively influence safety in warehouses in Poland, in the years 2019-2022. The publication posed: − a research problem in the form of a question: to what extent do the functioning technical and non-technical systems affect warehouse management in emergency situations? − two research gaps, the first manifests itself in the lack of studies on identifying threats affecting warehouse security, and the second practical, related to the lack of such research; − hypothesis - identification of threats and technical factors affects warehouse security. The research was conducted using a questionnaire, in which threats and factors affecting safety in warehouses were analyzed. The presented results allowed to specify the threats that may appear in warehouse management, assess them and propose technical solutions that affect warehouse security.
