1. Check load capacity.
It is important to ensure the racking is not overloaded, so it should be regularly checked for any signs of damage or strain on the system.
2. Structural integrity.
Regular inspections should be carried out to check the structural stability and condition of racks, such as the beams, frames, and connections.
Racks need to be easily accessible for employees who may want to access products stored in them. Poor accessibility can lead to accidents caused by reaching into spaces that are too small or difficult to reach safely.
4. Rack labeling.
All racks should have proper labeling that indicates what type of items they contain and their weight capacities so that workers know how much weight the racking can safely hold.
5. Check for spills.
A regular check for any spills or debris should be conducted to ensure that products stored on racks are not contaminated and that workers do not slip or fall from wet surfaces.
Ensure that the aisles between racks are kept clear and well-lit so that workers can easily spot potential hazards.
7. Proper installation.
Make sure that all racks were properly installed according to the manufacturer’s instructions, as poor installation may lead to instability and other accidents in the workplace.
8. Check for damage.
Inspect racks at regular intervals to ensure that they are not damaged and that any repairs needed are carried out immediately.
