The Importance of warehouse racking design and repairs

We all know how important it is to provide a safe working environment but how often are measures used that are deemed ‘good enough’ but have the potential to result in tragedy?

This article (via hsssearch.co.uk) highlights the dangers of not using racking in a warehouse and sadly on this occasion the outcome had appalling consequences.

It’s heartbreaking for all those concerned and our thoughts are with the Meese family.

 

The layout design of your warehouse is really important to ensure that the racking used suits the size and weight of the product to be stored, and as the article goes onto state, racking should have been used instead of blocks of wood. We are frequently called to warehouses that have been potential death traps with poor specification of racking or racking/shelving being used outside of its original design remit.

“Storage racking should be used. If this is not possible, safe areas, such as overhead protected walkways, must be provided to allow access. ” HSE inspector Carol Southerd
