You?ll only know that for sure if you?re fully up to speed with all the safety procedures put in place to keep people safe in the working environment.
At Advanced Handling and Storage we are resellers of the revolutionary A-Safe product range and know what you need to give you the peace of mind you need. You also need to make sure your racking has been correctly installed, ideally by using a SEMA approved supplier like ourselves. Regular visual inspections of your racking are essential to ensure absolute safety. It?s a good idea to carry out a risk assessment at the start and then decide what is a reasonable frequency for future inspections. Many companies carry out weekly visual inspections to keep on top of damages and to identify any major issues. You also need to ensure that you keep formal records of these inspections.
Ensure all damage is reported as soon as it occurs. It is important that forklift truck drivers and warehouse operatives are aware of their responsibilities too as it?s their safety which could be at risk. Where damage is found, the racking should be quarantined until it has been repaired.
Mark all racking with safe operating loads
Only let suitably trained people operate fork lift trucks
Design your layout and entry points with safety in mind
Use floor guide rails and ensure they are well maintained
Keep all floors clear of rubbish or rogue pallets.
No matter how thorough your own processes, you should arrange to have a detailed inspection of your pallet racking carried out annually by a technically competent team.
There?s so much to consider, but the best way to ensure that your system is safe and meets all the current requirements is to get your racking inspected by a SEMA Approved Racking Inspector.
Who are SEMA? It stands for Storage Equipment Manufacturers? Association and they are the British Trade Association for this Industry. They?re committed to promoting and extending the safe design, installation and use of storage equipment manufactured and supplied by its members.
In fact the very best way is to give us a call and we can organise all of this for you! Whether you have industrial shelving systems, any make of pallet racking or a mezzanine floor used for storage, we can give you peace of mind and ensure everything is safe.
