Question: I was looking at our load notices, I was just wondering how many should be used? Is there a recommendation on how many racking bays the signs should be fitted to?
Answer: There is no formal requirements on this point which depends on the circumstances of your particular application.
The fundamental requirement is that the operative is given the information to allow him/her to use the racking safely. This could be information on a drawing providing the user can prove that this information has been given to all the people that need to know this information. This is difficult so HSE and SEMA recommend a load notice so that anyone who needs this information has access to it.
As an example, if a whole of a block of racking in a single warehouse is services through a single door and is all to the same rack configuration a single sign on entry might be deemed acceptable as all drivers will see if as they enter the warehouse.
If every run of racking has a different configuration then a different sign is required on each run ? and sometimes more than one sign is the racking varies in one type down the run!
As I mentioned, there are no written rules on this, but at the end of the say it is something there to protect you, your staff and your racking!
