Businesses will now need to place an extra onus on workplace safety themselves; with no regular workplace checks by a thorough professional, it is important that they come up with ways in which to maintain the safety of their so-called ‘low risk’ workplace without recommendations from officials every year. One of the key elements to safety in environments such as shops and offices is organisation. Ensuring that efficient organisational systems are in process, with enough storage solutions and no clutter, is vital to the safety of employees. Rapid Racking is one of the UK’s leading providers of shelving and racking solutions for such commercial purposes, and is on hand to assist any businesses who feel they need to overhaul their organisational systems ahead of the proposed inspection cuts.
The stockroom of a shop or an office is traditionally a place where many accidents can happen; reaching up to grab supplies that are out of reach, tripping over goods left strewn in aisles or overloading shelving or racking systems can all be causes of injuries to employees. Rapid Racking can provide heavy-duty shelving for all purposes, as well as budget steel shelving for emergencies and connectable shelving that is ideal for creating sturdy aisles out of these storage solutions. Starting at just £89.00 for two budget bays and with next day delivery available on many products, there is no excuse for businesses not to commence their health and safety overhaul immediately.
As well as shelving and racking solutions Rapid Racking also provides a selection of handling equipment that improves the safety of a working environment. Sack trucks can prevent employees from lifting goods that are too heavy for them, while kick steps and safety ladders put a stop to dangerous falls when undertaking a stocktake on the highest shelves. All of these products are crucial resources in a workplace which won’t have the benefit of an inspector telling them where to improve, and with prices as low as £29.00 for a basic lightweight kick step, it is easier for businesses on budgets to pay the price now, rather than months down the line in the form of costly insurance claims and sick pay.
