How weight load notices improve your warehouse safety [BLOG]

Weight load notices are a significant piece of signage which is secured onto your racking, designed to keep your workforce safe. The notices provide key information on the safety and maintenance advice for the racking structure. Employees should always be trained on how to safely use the racking system however the notices provide guidance when required.

The notices provide important safety information using text, pictograms, colours and diagrams, making it easy for warehouse operatives to read safety messages whilst carrying out their daily tasks. The clear labelling provides important details of the weight that structures they are working with can bear. It is vital that these safety limits are obeyed to prevent accidents and to stay safe. The labels also include clear warnings, instructions and prohibitions to highlight general safe use and maintenance of the racking structure.

Here is an example of a racking weight load notice:
