The introduction of racking inspections that follow SEMA guidelines for racking inspections enable asset owners to manage and maintain the condition and safety of racking systems.
This has led to the need for organisations to improve their practices to ensure that they remain compliant with the regulations and keep their employees safe. One of the most effective ways of ensuring compliance with the SEMA guidelines is to utilise QR codes and RFID chips to track warehouse inspections.
By tagging each individual racking bay with a unique identifying code, inspections can be recorded with a greater degree of accuracy and speed, helping to reduce the risk of accidents due to unseen faults.
Assetagged.com is a mobile application that allows warehouse operators to use QR codes and RFID chips to maintain legal compliance under PuWER (Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations). Operators can use the app to record any damage to the racking systems and report any defects.
The monitoring of daily, weekly and monthly inspections can be conducted and the results recorded, stored and managed via the Assetagged app and software.
In addition to providing a safer working environment and reducing the risk of accidents, RFID and QR codes can also be used to streamline warehouse operations. By having a detailed and up-to-date inventory of all products and equipment, better stock rotations and ordering can be implemented, resulting in more efficient and cost-effective management of warehouse resources.
In conclusion, by utilising QR codes and RFID chips in the warehouse environment, warehouse operators can conduct safety checks with ease and stay compliant and safe.
