MANUAL HANDLING & ERGONOMICS


an attempt to straighten bent components.


Similar to racking, SEMA quantifies damage to frame uprights and bracing as green, amber or red risk. These rules only apply to damage that produces an overall bend in a component, and do not apply to highly localised damage such as dents, buckles, tears and splits. Bends are judged against a 1,000mm straight edge. Localised bends over a shorter length should be judged pro-rata and racks subjected to tears and splits should be replaced.


With back strains and injuries being common concerns in warehousing, shelving and storage solutions can be installed which allow access and retrieval of stock at a comfortable, ergonomic height. Products such as vertical storage machines or pallet pull out units are ideal for this, as they are designed to present stock at an optimal height and allow stock to be reached without straining.


Integrating best practice and partaking in regular inspections keeps staff safe in the workplace, reduces downtime lost to accidents and faulty equipment, and eliminates the risk of fines for non- compliance, improving business operations, growing profitability and increasing your competitive edge.
