Safety and Pallet Rack Go Hand in Hand

Hiring for Safety is Easier Said than Done.

Today more than ever, safety is a hot topic in warehouses around the country.  As safety standards and enforcement continue to rise, avoiding OSHA fines, personnel injuries and bad PR are more important than ever. When we add insurance to the mix, the simple goal of creating a safety-driven workplace isn’t so simple anymore.  When you’re hiring a contractor, things can get even more tricky.  How do you know what their safety record looks like?  Have their employees completed the required training and certification programs? You want to hire an established and reliable contractor for your project, but don’t have time to search the web all day.

Making sure the company you’re hiring is safe, credible and experienced can be a hassle, but you don’t have to do it alone.  We understand and have experienced these challenges, which is why we’re an ISN certified pallet rack installer.
