Think about your warehouse operations and how many times your forklifts are serviced or the fire hydrants inspected. Systems and logs books mean that these types of simple checks are regularly done and the operational benefits are gained.
Yet some businesses seem to “get the small stuff right” while leaving their biggest operational investment – warehouse pallet racking – fall behind in both inspections and maintenance.
The reality is that this is not an option. Regular pallet racking inspections are required as a compliance matter by AS4084-2012.
As mentioned before – these types of regular activities are best maintained with a log system backed up by company process. For details on Dexion Logistics pallet racking safety inspection click here.
What is AS4084-2012?
This Standard sets out minimum requirements for the design, fabrication and erection tolerances, test methods, operation and maintenance of steel storage racking in the limit states method.
You can purchase a copy of Standards Australia’s AS 4084-2012 online, in both hard copy and digital download through SAI Global. Section 8.2 specifically details information on inspections.
Compliance Inspections Drive Investment ROI
Compliance inspections also drive another benefit for your business: the return on your investment (ROI) on your pallet racking investment. After a professionally conducted inspection any identified defects or issues will give opportunities for preventative maintenance which will save your business from possibly more major expenses in the future where pallet racking doesn’t meet compliance requirements.
Regular preventative maintenance will also give your business the peace of mind that worker safety in operational environments is receiving the attention it must have. This continuing focus will support your company’s safety culture overall as well.
