New storage rack regulations now in effect

Published on: January 02, 2018

The new B.C. storage rack regulations related to occupational health and safety came into effect as of January 1, 2018.

Moving materials on and off storage racks, either manually or using mobile equipment, puts workers at greater risk of injury due to slips, trips, and falls; overexertion; and being struck by falling objects. There are additional risks if the racks are not properly installed, inspected, used, or maintained.
