When Adding Used Flow Rack Storage to Your Facility, Forklift Safety Precautions Are Important
Many facilities add used flow rack systems to help improve the efficiency of their organization processes without having to stretch their budgets to buy new storage. The efficient usage of flow racks can further be improved by accessing product with forklifts, but this does mean that the proper safety precautions must be followed, especially when working with used equipment.
The best safety precautions to start with are those outlined by OSHA. These guidelines are in place to help minimize hazards in forklift usage, and they can also help to improve the ease with which your employees can access inventory stored on flow racks and other shelving and racking systems. Additionally, it helps to only allow those trained in forklift usage to operate forklifts, and ensure that those who are untrained know the importance of keeping a safe distance from equipment currently in use.
