What You Will Learn

Racks are highly efficient and optimized structures that require all components to be free from damage to fully bear the load placed on them. Damage reduces the capacity of the pallet racks, but it's difficult to establish by how much, prompting engineers to recommend certified replacements or repairs to restore the full capacity of the systems. Additionally, the consequences associated with cumulative damage to pallet racking are numerous. In case of an accident, managers who have not taken action, expose themselves to serious liabilities. When workers and rack owners understand the potential safety hazards and know the proper course of action when an event occurs, safety is drastically improved. This seminar aims to help warehouse owners and operators understand and identify hazards related to pallet rack safety. It highlights the importance of prevention measures such as employee training, the use of protection and guarding solutions against damage, and conducting regular inspections of all racking systems. Learn how you can limit liability and reduce the risk of accidents or collapse by implementing an effective pallet rack safety and maintenance program. The following topics will be covered: • Conducting regular rack inspections and damage assessments • Proper training of employees • Review of documentation that should keep be kept on hand • Addressing rack damage and when to unload • Strategies for protecting racks against future damage
 

Key Takeaways

• Understanding and identifying hazards related to pallet racks systems
• The role of an engineer with regards to racking systems
• Review of LARCS and rated load capacity
• The importance of prevention (training, protection, and regular inspections)
