Wikipedia describes preventative maintenance as: ?The care and servicing by personnel for the purpose of maintaining equipment and facilities in satisfactory operating condition by providing for systematic inspection, detection and correction of incipient failures either before they occur or before they develop into major defects.?… On this occasion we are going to apply this to pallet racking.
As a pallet rack systems distributor, we highly stress to our clients the benefit of running preventative maintenance on their racking systems on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. Of course, you always want to be inspecting your rack for visual dangers as you perform your daily routines. Creating a checklist and setting aside a schedule for these rack inspections is key to maintaining your rack system and increasing your warehouse safety. With so many rack systems available, it?s difficult to make one checklist for all systems so it?s up to you to create your own list, depending on the rack system that you have in your warehouse.
-Inspect all upright frame columns to ensure that none are damaged or dented from forklifts.
-Make sure you inspect all rack crossbeams to ensure that none are damaged, dented or sagging from forklift impact.
-Inspect pallet rack wire decking or cross bars for bends, damage or unwanted movement.
-Review pallet positioning of all product pallets, making sure that all pallets resting on the crossbeams are equally dispersed over the beam levels.
-Inspect all frame anchors, ensuring that they are still connected and free from damage.
-Inspect beam to frame connection, and make sure all beam safety clips are fully engaged.
-List all safety concerns.
To keep your warehouse racking safe you will need to perform preventative maintenance on a weekly basis. If you have questions regarding capacity or replacing shelving components, contact your local material handling company for assistance.
