During the rebuilding process the client also decided to review their entire storage needs and decided to opt for a large bulk storage area for larger palletised items and low level shelving for small handloaded components. This has since dramatically improved their original operations, increasing storage and reduced handling.
Our expert inspection immediately identified and prevented a possible collapse of a very unsafe racking structure, of which the client and warehouse operatives were unaware of.
Although remedial works were unexpected and a significant high cost for the client, they were grateful and very relieved to have prevented a dangerous incident and serious injury to their staff.
Unfortunately, bespoke and unapproved racking structures are still today installed by ‘untrained persons’ looking to make a quick profit with a total disregard of the consequences of their poor workmanship by cutting corners and taking risks, without thought of those that may be affected.
