Pallet racking system are common in warehouse racking. When it comes to warehouse storage, pallet racks provide an optimal, easy-to-operate solution. They’re the most common way of storing pallet loads in the world, and they’re used in the vast majority of warehouses, manufacturing facilities, logistics center, and even retail stores. Whether you’re dealing with selective, push-back, drive-in, or other types of racks, the issues are frequently similar.
Here are some tips for you when you are using pallets:
1.Do Not Use a Damaged Pallet
If pallets are damaged, inappropriate for the job, please do not use it for loading. As damaged pallets can be a serious hazard—especially on a high shelf with a heavy load.
2.Do Not Overload 
Knowing your pallet rack’s capacity before you load is essential toward ensuring worker safety. Be certain that your rack can hold your load, particularly in the upper levels (if you don’t see weight capacities posted on your rack, check the manufacturer specs). Even better, store the heaviest loads either in lower bays or on the floor. 

3.Slow down your working action
Slowing down gives forklift operators more time to properly handle pallets and reduce instances of short forking, improper tine spacing and other shortcuts. While using forklift, it should be pay attention to each side that is clear to take out the pallet.
4.Avoid Incorrect or Unsafe Rack Loading

Pallet rack loads aren’t just simple weight versus structure. The dimensions, shape, and size/density of the load as it sits on storage racks is absolutely critical to safe, effective warehouse storage. To avoid incorrect or unsafe rack loading, it’s important to consider not only the weight, but also what type of load will be loading on , how it sits, and how that might affect the capacity.
