Installing and Maintaining Warehouse Shelving to Ensure Safe Operations
Maintaining safe operations in a warehouse requires carefully managing everything from ongoing employee training to equipment maintenance. Perhaps no element of warehouse safety is more important than ensuring warehouse shelving is properly installed, arranged, and maintained. This will help prevent your shelving from failing, which is a leading cause of injuries in the warehouse, as well as damaged inventory.
Before having your shelving installed, it is best to carefully consider the ideal warehouse layout. Many businesses utilize the fishbone aisle design, as it makes it safe and efficient for employees to navigate the aisles. Also, no matter what type of shelving you’re utilizing in your warehouse, it is best to have them professionally installed to ensure they can handle maximum recommended weights. And, of course, employees should always adhere to manufacturer guidelines when it comes to the capacity and storage distribution of the shelving.
