You might be unaware of, or even simply ignoring, serious rack damage – or perhaps you’re covering up damaged frames with column protectors? Is your maintenance crew currently welding steel plates over damaged column sections? Are your forklift operators driving around on pins and needles?
If so, an independent, professional inspection of your warehouse racking system is the best way to help reduce your legal risks and keep both your industrial space and employees safe in the harsh, often unpredictable environment of most industrial use warehouses.

Without ongoing, independent warehouse racking inspections you are putting yourself – and your employees – in danger
The benefits of having a Warehouse Racking Safety Inspection completed on an ongoing basis cannot be overstated. We perform the following in our multi-step rack audit:
- Visual inspection for dangers and potential rack collapse.
- Inspection of frames for low column damage like bends, crushing, pushing in or busted anchors. Most damage occurs within 24″ from the ground due to fork truck impact.
- Analysis of horizontal and diagonal frame braces to ensure they are not broken, bent or twisted. Ensuring all frames are properly bolted to the floor.
- Checking/inspecting beams for frontal damage or any downward force impacts, beam disengagement, load locks sticking out and missing or loose bolts.
- Ensuring that your beams are not bowing or deflecting, a sure sign you are placing too much weight on that level. Checking to make sure there is no erosion on the beam’s end plate connector welds.
- Examining crossbars to ensure that they are located evenly beneath the pallet load. If you are using flanged crossbars we ensure that they are screwed or bolted in. For roll-in or snap-in style, we ensure they are engaged or locked into the beam slot that keeps them in place.
- Inspecting end-of-aisle barrier rails for any damage.
- Checking capacity issues and if frames and beams are properly labeled per OSHA regulations.
- What sets our Racking Safety Inspections apart?
All of our racking safety inspections come with a complete written assessment and proper documentation of any and all damages – and the delineation of those issues within a framework of importance (immediate replacement vs. standard replacement), as well as a cost and repair timetable and estimate. This gives managers and owners the ability to budget for repairs that will become necessary in the future, and take immediate action to fix imminent threats to warehouse safety.
