When storing your goods on pallet racking in a warehouse there is never a guarantee that they are safe and secure from being knocked or damaged.
With the day-to-day tasks of moving, picking, and restocking goods and the use of machinery, accidental damage can happen, which inevitably costs your business money. Below are some tips on how to help prevent this from happening:
Overloading your warehouse racking not only can damage your goods, but it can also be a great safety risk. Making sure the correct load notices are displayed clearly for workers to see, will ensure no pallets or goods are stored unsafely on your racking.
This is a standard requirement for any warehouse, however ensuring all the staff are aware and educated on what the information on the load notice means can have a great impact.
Enforcing a tidy and organised warehouse can ensure clutter never escalates in the workplace. Having a labelling system will ensure goods are always stored in the correct place, avoiding stock being misplaced or stored unsafely.
