This Risk Assessment is for guidance only – Warehouse Operators should carry out their own specific Risk Assessment for their site.
Due to the range of loading weights and pallet dimensions and types in use, it is not possible to retain or contain all pallets/objects that are subject to the most severe mishandling. There is a fundamantal trade off between the extent of fall protection and object containment that can be provided and the loads imposed on the racking structure by any system.
All fall protection systems should always be employed as part of an adequate Safe System of Work.
