  RACK SAFETY

 
   Rack Safety Issues    

The following rack conditions may lead to potential   unsafe conditions in any warehouse with a rack system:

  • Overloaded rack--any changes made to a rack system must have appropriate engineering supervision and approval drawings verifying the load bearing capacity
  • Damaged rack--any damage to a rack system will reduce the capacity of the system
  • Unsupervised rack repair--any repair or replacement work needs to be performed by qualified professionals working to RMI design codes
  • Mix and match reconfigurations--if product from 2 different suppliers is to be combined, be sure that proper approval is provided from both manufacturers or a qualified engineer
  • Misapplication (pallet and product)--rack systems are designed for specific pallet and load combinations--be sure to have any changes to pallets or load application approved by your supplier
