Rack Safety Inspections

Will your racking and storage system stand up to inspection?

Pallet Racking can be dangerous - both for workers and for bystanders. The most serious dangers occur when all or part of a rack collapses or when loads fall off a rack or forklift.

These incidents usually happen because:

  • racks are not designed, installed or assembled properly,
  • the wrong kind of equipment is used to load or unload racks,
  • racks are overloaded beyond specifications,
  • a rack has been damaged.

Inspection Program

Employers that use pallet storage racks in the workplace must inspect racks on a regular basis or after any damage has been reported. They must also keep record of each inspection.

The person who does the inspection must have:

  • specific training in inspecting storage racks
  • a plan of the current layout
  • elevation drawings
  • manufacturer's instructions for the racks
