Questions To Ask Yourself

Safety has always been an important consideration in managing and operating a warehouse, regardless of its size or the nature of its inventory. Safety inspections must be enacted, especially if you have increased shipments, handle heavy equipment , store hazardous items or even handle fast moving products.  It is essential to provide a safety protocol and conduct regular employee training. While racks and shelving form the foundation of a warehouse, not many include the process of inspection, and the intricate details inspections might entail, in this foundation. 

Your warehouse, the shelving and racking are exposed to potential hazards every day.  Identifying them early will help your employees reduce the danger and risks of working in the warehouse environment. Some of the common potential causes of shelving and racking damages can include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Unqualified or inexperienced forklift truck drivers.

  • Incorrect type of forklift used for installations

  • Poor vehicle access within racking aisles

  • Employees unfamiliar with the safety protocols involved in managing racking systems in the warehouse

  • Inability to identify and located damage, which can result in 30% to 40% reduction in load carrying capacity
