Implement Your Warehouse Safety Program with the PROs
Warehouse safety will always be a concern, but with the Apex PROs Rack Repair & Safety Program, we can supply some much needed peace of mind. The Apex PROs are certified pallet rack auditors. Each PRO is thoroughly trained through a proprietary Apex training program. Our program is approved by SEIZMIC Engineering, a professional engineering firm that specializes in material handling system safety. SEIZMIC ensures that each certified PRO meets all requirements and provides a certificate of acceptance for Pallet Rack Audit & Safety Inspections.
Your dedicated Apex PRO safety specialist will conduct routine audits of your racking system to ensure compliance with OSHA safety regulations and the Rack Manufacturer Institute’s (RMI) design guidelines. Using the new Apex Rack Repair App, your Apex PRO will identify damage and safety concerns plus capture all the specs necessary for ordering any needed repairs. You will receive a comprehensive rack inspection report detailing recommended steps for system repairs and maintenance based upon the audit findings.
Because most of the system damage consists over time vs. a single event, the PROs keep detailed records of all damage and subsequent repairs to help identify any problem areas (areas that see repeated damage) and to be able to offer procedural or design improvements to improve safety and minimize maintenance costs.
