Improve racking inspections with new CSA guideline

A new guideline, CSA A344-17 Guideline for Racking Systems replaces and expands on the now retired standard CSA A344.1, published in 2005. The  guideline was produced by WSPS (Workplace Safety & Prevention Services), and is a standalone document for use in conjunction with B335-15 – Safety standard for lift trucks and S16-14 – Design of steel structures.

Chuck Leon, WSPS technical warehouse/material handling specialist, says a new CSA guideline will help supervisors, joint health and safety committees, and maintenance staff become more adept at inspecting racking systems for damage. As chair of the CSA guideline steering committee, Chuck has firsthand knowledge of the tool’s value.
