Stores attendants are an important part of the supply chain that allows Alberta Health Services to operate effectively. They receive and store supplies, equipment and food. Upon receiving requisitions, they pick, package and ship the items to the appropriate areas. Stores attendants are responsible for tracking orders and maintaining inventory records. Damaged or deficient items are reported to the appropriate vendor. Stores attendants also audit, clean and replenish supply carts on hospital units.
At the stores II level, attendants monitor shelf life, requisition items in low supply and ensure items are used. They audit outgoing orders and report discrepancies to the inventory coordinator or the warehouse manager. If items are damaged or recalled, they arrange for proper disposal or return. The stores II also acts as the liaison between the Contracting, Procurement and Supply Management department and other Alberta Health Services departments.
Stores attendants are located in a number of different facilities including hospitals and other health-care centers. They may work full-time or part-time hours, primarily during business hours, Monday to Friday. Stores attendants should be in good physical condition. They spend a considerable amount of time on their feet, working on loading docks. They work with pallet jacks, tow machines, dollies and supply carts. Crouching and bending may be required.
If working in a warehouse, a valid Transportation of Dangerous Goods Certificate or Forklift/Powered Equipment Certificate may be required.
