Safety should always be held as a top priority.
The safety of your employees, inventory, equipment, and overall warehouse is extremely crucial. An unsafe warehouse storage system can cause damage to your warehouse and the contents within, resulting in downtime and costly repairs.
You should always provide your employees with a safe workplace, to ensure their best health and quality of life.
Let’s look at how you can ensure that your warehouse storage system is both safe and effective.
How To Ensure Safe And Effective Warehouse Storage System – 4 Best Tips
Here are the 4 essential tips on how to ensure your warehouse storage system is effective and safe:
- Layout design of your facility
- Building permits
- Pre-Start Health and Safety Reviews (PSR)
- Inspections and repairs
Let’s discuss each one of them in detail.
1. LAYOUT DESIGN
The layout of your facility is the foundation of your warehouse. The layout can help ensure that your employees have a work area that is geared towards both safety and efficiency.
Concept Storage Solutions uses the latest software to design storage solutions for clients.
These plans and elevations are detailed and provide each client with a solution that achieves safety, efficiency, and inventory control.
2. BUILDING PERMITS
Building permits may be required prior to installing your storage system. Our team at Concept Storage is extremely familiar with this process.
Years of experience have left us in great standing with many city officials. This partnership allows us to acquire building permits seamlessly and effectively.
3. PRE-START HEALTH & SAFETY REVIEWS
Pre-Start Health and Safety Reviews (PSR) are a Ministry of Labour requirement. Essentially, this regulation requires the owner, lessee, or employer to obtain proper documentation for new and/or used storage equipment.
Ensuring that your storage system complies with the Ontario Health & Safety Act is extremely important. You should always ensure that your warehouse has all proper documentation and is up to standards.
You should always take every measure possible to ensure that your warehouse is a safe place to work. Our team at Concept Storage Solutions is more than happy to help you obtain PSRs for your storage system.
4. INSPECTIONS & REPAIRS
You wouldn’t drive a car without having it inspected regularly. The same can be said for your storage system. The condition of your racking can greatly impact the safety of your warehouse – and everyone inside.
Having your racking inspected regularly can bring any Ministry of Labour non-compliance issues to light. Once the issue is determined, you can take the necessary steps to have your racking repaired.
Concept Storage Solutions has a quick and efficient rack repair service. Our team can help ensure a safe and properly working storage system, providing you and your workers with a safe environment, while saving you both money and downtime.
