Safety and Racking Audits

AS4084-2023 - Pallet Racking Standards

According to the latest standards in pallet racking, AS4084: 2012 Steel Storage Racking, your warehouse requires an audit every 12 months. This is to confirm the racking is maintained in an acceptable state and any damage to the racking system is repaired, reducing the risk to both the staff and product. Arnott’s has MACRACK perform yearly audits on their steel storage systems as part of their workplace health and safety operations.

These audits ensure the personal safety of the workers as well as saving beloved pallets of Tim Tams from accidental disaster!

Racking in Food Preparation Areas

Being in an industry that provides human consumables and is strictly controlled by standards, every effort is made to safeguard health and cleanliness. MACRACK worked with Arnott’s to develop a variation on drive in racking to reduce area for food stuffs to be caught.

By blocking off all potential crevasses and holes, and ensuring that if a component wasn’t completely sealed it was easy to clean with flat surfaces, we helped to reduce potential build-up over time and allow for a cleaner environment with a decrease in contaminates.
