Accessing Used Warehouse Shelving with Proper Forklift Safety Precautions
Adding used warehouse shelving is an easy way to save money on storage equipment in your facility without missing out on quality. Of course, when your employees need to access items that are heavy or on high shelves with forklifts, it’s important to ensure that they follow proper operational safety precautions. Otherwise, there’s a high risk that they may cause significant damage to the equipment or even hurt themselves.
First and foremost, you should ensure that all regulations under the provisions of OSHA are being upheld, including posting OSHA guidelines somewhere easily accessible and noticeable for your employees. Above and beyond that, basic safety training goes a long way towards ensuring that nobody is using machinery improperly, and you’ll want to make it clear that only those employees who are properly trained and experienced should operate forklifts.
