Why racking audits are important

pallet racking audits

 

Racking is easily suspectable to damage, with a simple bump possibly leading to unstable racking, which increases the risk of injury and product damage. While a minor knock to your racking may not look too hazardous if that spot is continuously bumped it can easily get way worse and cause serious harm. This is why it’s important that your racking is inspected yearly by a professional.

Ensures that you complies to the Australian Standards

All pallet racking must comply with the Australian Standards AS/NZS 0484:2012 to ensure that you have a safe working environment. A racking audit must be conducted by a professional at least once a year to ensure that you remain compliant with the standards. If you fail to have your racking audited at least once a year, your working environment can become unsafe, putting your staff at risk of serious harm.

Makes you aware of any minor damage

Conducting regular racking audits can allow you to catch any minor damage that has occurred before it becomes a big problem. Regular audits can end up being more cost-effective as it is easier to fix any minor damage than it is to replace your whole racking system.

Any damage that your racking has sustained, whether it’s minor or major, can result in your racking failing. If your racking fails, it can cause injury to your staff and damage your stock which can severely impact your bottom line. So it’s important that this damage is fixed as soon as possible to avoid unwanted injuries.

Ensures your racking is efficient

Not only can a racking audit identify any safety concerns with your racking, but it can also help you evaluate the efficiency of your racking. Just like damaged racking, if your racking doesn’t allow you to be as efficient as possible, it can hurt your bottom line. So it’s important to evaluate how well your racking is working along with any damage to ensure your racking allows your business to run at its full potential.
