To ensure your business is following health and safety best practice guidelines, it is important to consider what safety systems you have in place when it comes to warehouse and workplace safety surrounding your racking or storage systems.
With this in mind, we have developed a wide selection of racking protection products to help you comply. From essential pot protectors that are required at the end of pallet racking runs, to frame protectors that provide full width protection of your pallet racking frames where forklift are turning, it is essential these racking protection products are in place in order to avoid potential rack collapse.
Rack collapse can be caused by impact from forklifts hitting racking posts that do not have racking protection, or by bad racking design or installation. To ensure your racking is safe, Rapid Racking offer annual Rack inspections for your peace of mind – call us for more details.
An often neglected element of an effective health and safety system is sufficient racking labelling or signage. Not only can racking identification enhance your picking efficiencies, but also general warehouse signage can help to guide forklift traffic around your workplace safely.
Racking labels and label holders are perfect for efficient picking and identification and are available with a self-adhesive of magnetic backing. Alternatively, magnetic letters and numbers are suitable for steel surfaces such as racking beams, so that they can easily be changed when your inventory changes.
For safety, weight loading notices are crucial when using a pallet racking or shelving system in your warehouse as it indicated the maximum shelf capacity and loading safety of each rack.
