  4. Have records to demonstrate that your staff know how to safely work around racking via IRIA's online training packages.
  5. Make sure that there is a system in place to report building and racking damage. IRIA provides hard copy and online systems to manage racking safety effectively.
  6. Document actioned racking repairs to reported damage via iRAT
  7. Ensure that your staff know what the capacity is for the racking system/building. Safe Work Load’s provide this information and can be discussed at time of IRIA's inspection.
  8. Is all safety signage is in place including loading capacity signage?
  9. Make sure that you can demonstrate a repair program for the building and racking system. IRAT’s online reports provide this information.
