Australian Standard AS4084-2012 requires that all steel pallet racking systems be checked for damage at regular intervals of no less than every 12 months. If rack damage remains undetected and death or injury to workers should result from a racking collapse, your company is liable under the Occupational Health & Safety Act.
Your workers' lives and your company could be at risk, but a simple racking safety audit can allow you to rectify any existing damage before an accident occurs.
Colby Southern's division 'Colby for Service' can provide expert advice and assistance on all safety and maintenance requirements for pallet racking systems and warehouse shelving, to ensure that full compliance with the Australian Standard is met.
The Colby for Service 4-Step Safety Audit will:
ASSESS your existing system for damage and determine if your rack is optimal for your operations and compatible with the pallets and equipment in use
REPORT on any damage that needs to be recified and provide you with a site-specific safety manual giving a full audit trail of the inspection program, damage reports and certificates of clearance once the corrective action is completed
REDUCE the chance of any futher damage by putting systems in place to provide safer operation
PROTECT your rack from damage by installing rack protection equipment and educating your workers on correct usage of equipment and how to recognise potential problems.
