Are your Cranes and Pallet Racking an OSHA Violation?

Does OSHA require crane and rack safety inspections and how often are safety inspections to be conducted?

Crane Systems:

OSHA requires that all active cranes must be inspected once a year at the minimum. However, depending on the cranes usage, additional inspections will be required.

Reference OSHA Standard 1910.179 – Overhead and gantry cranes:


Pallet Racking:

Some of the more common citations OSHA has cited s companies for pallet racking has to do with basic installation, maintenance, and repair issues. While there are no specific guidelines for racking safety by OSHA, there is a general clause of the Occupational Safety Health Act that states employers shall provide a workplace that is free from recognized hazards. Reference OSHA ACT of 1970:


Your organization is required to ensure your pallet racking is  installed correctly  and does not pose an obvious hazard.  You may be in violation of OSHA regulations and fined if your racking does pose any obvious threat.  Some of the following are OSHA violations businesses have been fined with regards to their pallet racks:

-Racking was not installed properly.

-Damaged racking not replaced

-Not labeling capacities of racking and overloading

-Modifications that are not approved by manufacturer and unsafe.
