QUESTION FOR YOURSELF

Warehouse safety has always been an important consideration in managing and operating a warehouse, regardless of its size or its inventory nature. Safety inspections must be put in place especially if you have increased shipments, heavy equipment handling and storages of hazardous items or even fast moving products, it is essential to provide a safety protocol and conduct regular trainings for the employees. While racks and shelving form the foundation of a warehouse, not many are familiar with the process of inspection and the intricate process/details it might entail. 

IS YOUR WAREHOUSE AND THE STORAGE SYSTEMS SAFE ENOUGH?
Your warehouse and the shelving and racking are highly exposed to potential hazards every day, by spotting them early will help your employee reduce the danger and risks of working in the environment. 
Some of the common potential causes of shelving and racking damages can include but not limited to the following: 

  • Unqualified or inexperienced forklift truck drivers.

  • Not using the right type of truck for installations (multi-purpose mentality).

  • Poor vehicle access within racking system aisles

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

  • Locating where sketched damages are which can result in 30% to 40% reduction in load carrying capacity
