Common Risks and Hazards of Installation
Are you looking to install pallet racking yourself? Macrack has created a comprehensive guide to selective racking installation.
Listed below are some of the common risks and hazards you may encounter while installing selective pallet racking.
Manual Handling – Before you begin the installation, make sure that you are familiar with the legislation on safe work practices in your area. It is important to conduct a risk assessment before any work begins. This will help to ensure the safety of you and anyone else involved in the racking installations.
Materials – As pallet racking is built with metal, it is important to be aware that sharp edges and steel splinters are a possible risk. Other material risks include any harmful residual products from the manufacturing process.
Installation Area – The area chosen for installation should be free of obstacles, vehicles and other workers. This includes any area that could be affected by fallen frames or beams. A full hazard check of the area should be conducted to ensure there are no existing hazards before installation begins.
Note: Frame materials should be placed as close as possible to where they will be assembled to reduce risks through manual handling.
Power Tools – If power tools are used during the assembly process, electrocution is a possible risk to be aware of. A residual current device should always be used alongside the use of power tools to reduce the risk of electrocution.
Assembly – Falling or collapsing frames are a possible hazard during assembly if the frames are not properly secured. Other hazards during assembly include working at heights and working with and around vehicles. It is important to be aware of the legislation of your local operational health and safety body regarding fall protection when working at heights. Any equipment or vehicles used to assist during the assembly process should have their own risk assessments before use.
Fixing Down – A pallet racking installation will require holes to be drilled into the concrete where it is being installed. This can be achieved using a rotary hammer drill, bearing in mind that this
equipment has its own noise and eye hazards to be aware of.
Personal Protective Equipment – After all of the above hazards have been addressed, ensure personal protective equipment is used at all times during the installation.
