CSST PREVENTION GUIDE:
SAFETY OF PALLET RACKS
Numerous industrial accidents are caused by installation and use of pallet racks, or pallet racking. In Quebec, the absence of specific regulations or standards has made it necessary to develop this Prevention Guide on the Safety of Pallet Racks.
This Prevention Guide is aimed at inspectors, company managers, occupational health and safety officers, and rack users, including installers, suppliers, distributors and manufacturers. Its goal is to provide companies with information on the preventive measures to be adopted, and to offer them support in the application of these measures.
This Guide is a prevention tool and, as such, has no legal value or regulatory power. It was produced by la Commission des normes, de l'équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (CSST).
