Safety Audits Pallet Racking All About Racking And Shelving Australia provides a swift and cost-effective Safety report service to maintain your pallet racking systems within the statutory safety requirements for you within the framework of The Australian standards and work place health and safety requirements. Racking systems often fail or collapse, in part or in whole. The forklifts that load the racks often collide with them, causing material to be displaced or damaging the racking itself. Material sometimes falls through the back of the racks. In addition, facilities with floor vibration are at risk of loads crawling and eventually falling off the rack. These incidents happen when racks are improperly designed, installed or assembled, when they're being loaded or unloaded with the wrong kind of material handling equipment, or when they're damaged. Other causes of failure of pallet rack systems: Overloaded or misused racks. Unstable concrete floors. Cracks in concrete floors around the anchors (from repeated hitting of the pallet racking). Products pushed through the back of the rack or no back rest where required. Operator error, often because the person driving the material handling equipment (forklift, reach truck etc.), isn't properly trained regarding pallet racking structures and their use. After a forklift collision with a rack, employees fail to report the incident to management, or fail to assess damage and to organise the appropriate maintenance or repairs. Using racks and shelving to store goods/products they were not originally designed for. Bracing is damaged, removed or not installed. Anchor bolts are damaged or not installed. Lack of regular inspections and a maintenance program. Nil or incorrect Safe work load and maintenance signs. It is important to consult with the manufacturer and or supplier of your racking and or shelving system before any alterations to the layout configuration and or level changes are considered to be undertaken on any racking and or shelving units as alterations may change the weight loading capacity of your racking and shelving systems.
