We deal everyday with uncertainties. When you wake up every morning you are uncertain if you can live through the day. When you go to work or just sit in front of the television, you are at risk of breathing your last breath. Death stalks us and it is important that in every aspect of our lives, we should double check in order to ensure our safety.
At home, you surely have lots of materials and tools. It is important to stack these things neatly in a corner of your room using racks. When purchasing these racks, you also need to make sure that the manufacturer has undergone a racking inspection and has passed all of the standards of the state. You can ask the retailer or manufacturer if they are certified in this aspect.
What do inspectors look for?
- Damages. People who are given the authority to give approval for racking inspection would always look for any signs of damages in the rack. This includes malfunctioning parts which will defeat the purpose of the rack and make it a dangerous storage place for your things at home. Moreover, corrosion is also one of the things that inspectors look for when inspecting racks. This is a sign that the material used is of low quality and that the material is handled incompetently.
- Unrealistic. There are some manufacturers who build racks that cannot actually hold the expected number of things that will be placed on it. Some make stacks of racks that are not advisable and cannot hold the specific weight in the product label.
- Connections. Aside from the stacks of racks that will be checked during a racking inspection, the functionality of the connection in every level will also be scrutinized. It is very important that the lines are safely and tightly packed up to avoid any kind of tragedy. Inspectors must see to it that all the clips and other materials that are responsible for the attachment of each level are holding each line tightly.
