As you go into the new year and start making goals for your business, one of your business goals should center around safety. Make pallet racking safety one of the top priorities for your business this year. Increasing the safety of your pallet racking will help improve the overall flow of your warehouse and will help keep your employees safe and injury free. Both of these will help your business succeed.
#1 Upgrade The Safety Features On Your Pallet Racking System
The first thing that you need to do is upgrade the safety features on your pallet racking system. There are always supportive and additional safety products that you can purchase that are designed to work with your pallet system. These safety products are designed to ensure that any damage that your vehicle sustains is mitigated. For example, there are upright protectors that you can put on your posts that will take the impact of your fork lift bumping into your pallet racking system. To upgrade the safety features on your pallet racking system, talk with your material handling equipment distributor. They should be able to help you figure out exactly which safety features your current system needs. Safety features are generally much less expensive than the pallet racking systems themselves and are a great way to protect the investment that you made into your system.
#2 Inspect Your Pallet Racking System
The second thing you need to make pallet safety a top priority this year is to make sure that you have your pallet racking system inspected and repaired at least once a year. Just like other important components and systems, it is vitally important to have your pallet system inspected on a yearly basis just like you have your air condition system and roof inspected at least once a year.
If any part of your system is damaged, it could cause your entire system to collapse. A professional will be able to spot which areas of your system have become weak and repair them before your product and your employees are injured on the job. This is a great investment to make that will protect both your product and your employees. Your material handling equipment distributor should be able to complete this type of inspection and repair for you.
This year, make safety a top priority in your workplace. Upgrade the safety features on your pallet racking system and have it inspected at least once a year for needed repairs. Additionally, review pallet safety practice and tips with your employees. Taking these steps will increase the safety and productivity of your workplace.
