When Working with Used Pallet Racking, Always Utilize Proper Forklift Safety Precautions
Accessing used pallet racking is often performed with a forklift or similar machinery, as the large amounts of product stored there can be too difficult to maneuver otherwise. However, the improper operation of a forklift can easily lead to significant risks, both in terms of damage to your equipment and severe injury to your employees. That’s why it’s important to ensure that your facility adheres to stringent forklift safety precautions.
The most critical element of proper forklift safety precautions is seeing to it that OSHA regulations are being followed. Above and beyond that, it’s helpful to have the right personnel trained to properly load and drive forklifts, as well as ensuring that no untrained or inexperienced employees are trying to operate the forklifts. Plus, enforcing rules for other employees to avoid any forklifts currently being operated can help prevent dangerous collisions.
