Regular rack safety inspection can reduce risk factors and avoid serious damage.
(1) Whether the lighting is adequate: Adequate lighting can help forklift operators to see shelf columns and other obstacles that may be blocking their path.
(2) Whether the aisle is clean: Keeping the traffic area free of obstacles allows your vehicle operators to take the safest path and keep a safe distance between the forklift and the rack structure.
(3) Whether the rack protection is in place: The rack foot protector is relatively cheap, which can extend the shelf life and safety.
(1) Whether the rack is vertical and horizontal: the rack should be properly added spacers and installed with pipes.
(2) Whether the parts are rusty or corroded: If the paint is scratched, it may be a collision of the rack. If rust or corrosion has formed and is allowed to develop, it may weaken the carrying capacity of the shelf.
(3) Whether the rack is overloaded: When the load is equal, each pair of beams has a rated capacity, and the bearing capacity of the column depends largely on the spacing of the beams.
(4) Whether the rated load of the rack is posted: If the rated load is not posted, the rack capacity may be difficult to assess.
(1) Whether the column is bent or damaged: Check whether the horizontal support has any bent, twisted or damaged welds. Are there serious paint scratches? Even minor damage will reduce the ability to stand upright, and these uprights need to be replaced or repaired immediately.
(2) Check the footboard : Are they properly attached to the floor? Is the gasket set directly nested under the footboard ?
