Improve safety in your warehouse and reduce maintenance costs on your equipment by carrying out pallet racking safety checks. Incidents involving pallet racking collapses often happen due to two reasons: 1. Products not being properly stacked / stored in a safe and orderly manner. 2. Collisions and unseen damage which weakens the rackings structural integrity. Using our racking inspections regularly will ensure that potential faults and dangers can be identified as quickly as possible which will help to prevent costly accidents.
SEMA recommend that racking operators are the first line of defence and should always be encouraged to report damage as it occurs. The second line of defence should be a supervisors weekly patrol inspection carried out with the express purpose of checking the racking. This should be done at weekly intervals normally at a standard walking pace keeping documented records of the inspection and action points resulting from the inspection. The final level of protection is the formal inspection that should be carried out every 6 or 12 months depending on the level of activity in the warehouse Ref: Storage Equipment Manufacturers Association (SEMA)
The Good to Go Safety racking inspection system allows you to complete and record your regular inspections (between your formal thorough examinations). Each check book contains 25 individual checklists relating to components and structural checks to be completed before the racking is used. In addition to the racking structure itself our check sheet includes the surrounding area and the loads/pallets to help maximise the ability to spot potential concerns. Duplicate carbon copies of the completed checklists are retained in the book for management records. The book also includes useful guidance notes to remind operatives what to look for during their inspection.
