How tall exactly is that 8th tier in the DCs? Training to pick and that's got my nerves on edge a bit. Not so much the height but how the whole equipment kinda moves and rocks a bit.

Around 30ft... It's scary for people at first but you'll get used to it. The main thing to always remember is that the equipment has fail safes in them so you're safe as long as you remember to connect your harness and make a habit of just tilting your head back to touch it so you know it's connected. Always step on platform and grab the SRL (self retracting lanyard) to attach it first thing ALWAYS. Once you get used to the rocking & can predict the movements you'll forget you're in the air.

You're pretty high up there. Forgot my tape measure the last time I got an aisle with an 8th tier 😉 But as Frank said, you'll get used to it. As long as you keep an eye out for unsafe pallet placement and report them, always wear your safety harness, and are aware of your foot placement, you'll be fine. I actually quite enjoy it. Don't forget to use your Shepherd's hook, too! ☺️

I tell new hires to try and focus on the work they are doing right in front of them vs going up high and then just standing at the edge and looking down to frighten themselves out of making money.

Even bridges sway but you'll never cross that bridge if you focus on the sway vs the task right in front of you which is getting to where you want to go.
