American Compliance Regulations

Companies have a responsibility to ensure that employees working around pallet racking and other types of racking systems are safe. Regular maintenance, rack inspections, and PSR Capacity Reports are necessary for compliance.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidelines state that all facilities must have a program for “systematic identification of workplace hazards”.
