Safety Consideration In Pallet Racking

Description:

Pallet racking is of course, a kind of material handling storage system. It is very common nowadays. It is also virtually everywhere. Be it in retail systems, or manufacturing plants, or even in those impressionable high end upscale warehouses. Definitions aside, the next most important thing to be considered as far as pallet racking is concerned are the safety factors. Although this is purely a material storage system, as in most cases; people are definitely involved. And after having the system all figured out and planned out down to a T, the next most important thing to be taken to attention of course is safety. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

  • Safety Consideration In Pallet Racking

  • Pallet racking is of course, a kind of material
    handling storage system. It is
  • very common nowadays. It is also virtually
    everywhere. Be it in retail
  • systems, or manufacturing plants, or even in
    those impressionable high end
  • upscale warehouses. Definitions aside, the next
    most important thing to be
  • considered as far as pallet racking is concerned
    are the safety factors.
  • Although this is purely a material storage
    system, as in most cases people
  • are definitely involved. And after having the
    system all figured out and
  • planned out down to a T, the next most important
    thing to be taken to
  • attention of course is safety.
  •  
  • Close and meticulous attention should always be
    focused on the loose
  • components of any pallet racking system. In
    essence the presence of any
  • parts or components that are loose should be
    removed. If any, they should
  • be rectified right away and sorted out and
    eliminated for good. Time should
  • always be taken to report any damages, regardless
    of how minimal it is to
  • the pallet rack system. Logically, any damage in
    the pallet rack system could
  • definitely cause the pallets to fall - and that
    is the last thing anyone could
  • ever want.

  • The next safety measure should be ensured by the
    owner at all
  • times. Clear communication between all the people
    that are
  • present arounf the system is necessary. The
    ideology is simple.
  • Climbing on storage racks is a recipe for
    disaster. Doing such
  • might lead to serious unwarranted accidents like
    slips and falls.
  • Not only that particularly moment right after
    assembly it
  • should never be climbed on - at any cost
    whatsoever.

  • Always ensure that quality plates are being used.
    Using damaged pallet
  • plates are absolutely out of the question. There
    are instances wherein some
  • management entities may decide to use pallets
    that have a tendency to
  • become faulty or just downright dangerous so that
    they can scrimp out on
  • small amounts to be saved or sometimes it may be
    in certain instances that
  • the management's concern over health and safety
    is limited. The pallets
  • should be inspected regularly for any fractured
    or broken planks, or even for
  • stringers. It should also always be checked for
    any possibly risky little details
  • like nails protruding from somewhere or worse,
    missing support blocks. It is
  • also very important to always ensure that only
    properly motorised
  • equipment are being used for the application. If
    not, there is always the
  • grave tendency that it would not be adequate and
    accidents may happen.
  • Not only may that, using inappropriate equipment
    that results in not getting
  • the job done with the efficacy and speediness
    that usually comes with the
  • pallet racking system.

  • And more importantly, the end of aisles should
    never be
  • blocked at any instance and at all times. Thus,
    staging pallet
  • racks in these areas is just unacceptable and
    should never be
  • practiced at all, by all means. If this occurs
    the high of severe
  • injury or a fatality is extremely high. Quite
    clearly the health
  • and safety of emplyees should be maintained -
    most especially
  • when it comes to weight requirements. Overloading
    is a no-no.
