Pallet racking systems are an integral part of warehouse operations, but they also pose potential hazards if not properly maintained. Regular racking inspections are essential to ensure warehouse safety and to comply with regulations. However, even experienced inspectors can make mistakes during the inspection process. In this blog post, we’ll discuss common pitfalls during racking inspections and explain how the Econform Inspection App can help you avoid these issues while ensuring the safety and compliance of your pallet racking systems.
- Overlooking Damaged Components
One common mistake during racking inspections is failing to identify damaged components, such as bent uprights, damaged beams, or compromised bracing. Damaged components can compromise the structural integrity of racking systems, posing a risk to warehouse safety. The Econform Inspection App allows inspectors to easily document and report any damage found, ensuring that necessary repairs are made promptly.
- Ignoring Load Capacities
Exceeding the load capacity of pallet racking systems can lead to catastrophic failures and accidents. During inspections, it’s crucial to verify that load capacities are clearly marked and not exceeded. The Econform Inspection App helps you quickly check and document load capacities, making it easier to maintain warehouse safety and prevent overloading.
- Not Checking Connectors and Locking Devices
Connectors and locking devices play a vital role in the stability of racking systems. Failing to inspect these components for wear or damage can result in the collapse of pallet racking. The Econform Inspection App streamlines the process of examining connectors and locking devices, ensuring that any issues are promptly identified and addressed.
- Overlooking Improper Installation or Use
Improper installation or use of pallet racking systems can lead to accidents and non-compliance with safety regulations. Inspectors must check for signs of improper installation, such as unsecured racks, missing components, or incorrect configurations. The Econform Inspection App simplifies this process, helping inspectors identify and document any instances of improper installation or use.
