Call us to ask whether a PSR is required and to request a quote or site visit.
Workplaces with racking and storage facilities may contain potentially serious hazards. The improper use, selection and installation, or maintenance of racking and storage systems may put workers at risk of injury.
The Ministry of Labour inspects racking and storage facilities used by workers at industrial workplaces across Ontario. The stepped-up enforcement is part of the ministry's Safe At Work Ontario strategy, launched in June 2008.
Ministry of Labour inspectors will check whether the required precautions are being met by all who work in and around racking systems, as specified in the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) and the Regulations for Industrial Establishments (R.R.O. 1990, Reg. 851).
