Here are some recommendations to ensure you manage steel storage racking effectively

 

  1. Have your racking inspected at least annually.
  2. Ensure you have online access to your racking inspection report/s - IRIA can provide this via our online reporting tool - iRAT
  3. Have all of your racking related documentation within easy access - IRIA can provide you with an onsite racking safety manual. Verify you have a copy and keep it in a prominent location.
  4. Have documentation to demonstrate that your staff have been trained to use the equipment on site.
  5. Have records to demonstrate that your staff know how to safely work around racking via IRIA's online training packages.
  6. Document actioned racking repairs to reported damage - with our iRAT system you can tick off repairs as complete.
  7. Have a racking repair program in place
  8. Have Safe Work Load Charts prominently displayed. In most cases IRIA can assist with replacement charts if they are missing.
  9. Ensure that your staff know what the load capacity is for the racking system. 
  10. Ensure there is a system in place to report racking damage. IRIA provides hard copy and online systems to manage racking safety effectively.
