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.
EMA 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)
Employees should carry out a regular inspection to identify any obvious defects that could result in collape or prevent its safe use.
Each kit comes in a sturdy highly visible box which is ideal for storing used checkbooks for management records. The kit contains 275 individual (one for each day - working week) pallet inspections relating to the components and functionality of racking. Duplicate carbon copies of the completed inspection 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 racking inspection. The kit also contains 2 status tags which when positioned and attached to the end of each bay of racking is a ideal way to advise employees when racking is "Good to Go" following a pre-use inspection. If a fault is found then the tag can display a "Do Not Use" message to quarantine the equipment until repaired and another inspection deems the racking is safe for use. A useful wallet and pen which securely holds the book and pen to protect it from general wear and tear whilst providing a perfect writing surface whilst on the move. The kit also provides 300 tamper evident seals which provide a visual indicator that the checklist insert is in place and verified.
