When to Inspect Your Pallet Racking System

When is there a need for pallet racking inspection? The following is a list of instances in which pallet racking warehouse inspection services are mandatory by law in Ontario.

New Pallet Rack Installation

All new pallet rack installations in Ontario must undergo thorough health and safety inspections by a licensed engineer prior to use. Comprehensive post-installation inspections and reviews give you and your workers peace of mind. Defects, missing components, and system deficiencies can be identified prior to use to safeguard you and your crew and prevent potential operational delays and injuries down the line. New pallet rack installation inspections can also give you the tools, information, and recommendations you need to correct these issues and save you money.

Corporate Safety Initiative

Scheduling routine warehouse racking inspections shows your workers that you care about their health and safety. It also gives you the opportunity to educate workers on proper workplace safety etiquette and how to use the warehouse equipment correctly, so they can maximize productivity and adhere to safety standards.

Perform Timely Reassessments to Keep Racks Up to Code

While performing timely reassessments of your pallet racking systems aren’t necessarily mandatory by law, they are highly recommended and beneficial for maintaining the safe operations of your business. Equipment assessments should be performed on a regular basis by a licensed engineer to ensure that all of your material handling equipment and pallet racking systems are in excellent working condition at all times.

Repairs, Replacements, and Modifications

Warehouse pallet racking inspection services are required by law any time you make system reconfigurations or modifications. Repairs, maintenance, and part or system replacements are included in this category. Inspections guarantee that all modifications and reconfigurations are in full compliance with the MOL health and safety codes. They also reduce the risk of operational delays as a result of pallet racking system malfunctions and help keep your warehouse incident-free for as long as possible.

Regulatory Compliance and Reconfiguration Review

The province of Ontario requires routine pallet racking system inspections complete with safety ratings to ascertain that your pallet racking systems are in excellent working condition. As mentioned, employers are legally liable to ensure the overall health and safety of all workers while on the jobsite and this includes guaranteeing safe operation of all onsite equipment. To reduce the risk of injury, make sure your employees are fully educated about health and safety standards in your warehouse and how to safely operate the equipment including pallet racking systems.

Ongoing safety and equipment operation training is highly recommended.

Pre-Purchase Inspections

Whether you’re purchasing a brand new or used pallet racking system, it’s important to carefully review and test every component to identify potential defects ahead of time. Only licensed engineers and pallet racking specialists are legally authorized to inspect new pallet racking systems in Ontario prior to purchase and installation. The professionals have the proper expertise to comprehensively review pallet racking equipment.

At Canadian Rack Technologies Inc., we use extensive pallet racking checklists to confirm that the equipment is completely safe to use and up to code.
