Regular safety inspections are extremely important – OSHA does have regulations for a reason. Periodic safety audits of your racking system will help prevent future accidents, damage and business disruptions. Often times, disasters can be avoided when equipment is regularly and properly maintained.
Why It Matters: Rack System Failures
One of the main reasons rack system failures occur is due to improper lift truck use. OSHA regulations require that each operator work their way through a Comprehensive Equipment Safety Training Program before and during their time operating the machinery. Knowing the proper safety precautions to take and the correct way to use and maintain the equipment is the best way to ensure that you don’t run into huge conflicts down the road.
