Conducting a SafeRack Storage System Safety Audit not only helps protect your business and employees, it could assist in demonstrating Due Diligence to defend against or mitigate legal challenges from regulatory bodies should an accident occur.  An internal periodic rack inspection program that monitors unusual behavior / conditions of the rack or shelving system establishes that due diligence was exercised in the maintenance of the storage system.
