A nationwide records storage company conducts internal, routine field audits for each of their locations. To ensure they comply with safety standards, they needed a company that could implement both formal inspections and remediation services.
Upon the conclusion of an internal audit, the company contacts REB to perform a formal rack safety inspection. REB will conduct a formal safety inspection on-site following ANSI/RMI safety standards and provide a report identifying the location and severity of any damage found.
These safety inspections identify any damage or deficiencies within their facility.
Notable Damage Concerns to Identify:
– Column damage
– Horizontal and Diagonal Strut Damage
– Footplate Damage
– Overloaded Beams or Frames
– Beam Damage
– Decking Damage
REB will create a proposal that outlines remediation and protection options for the inspected areas. A dedicated project manager is assigned to the project to manage all sub-contractors. The project manager is the point of contact for the company and oversees all material, freight and rack repair or protection installations to completion.
In addition to acting as the main point of contact, the project manager evaluates bids from all sub-contractors to receive the best pricing and lead times for the company. This allows the damage to be repaired as quickly as possible, minimizing any potential danger to the company’s employees or inventory.
REB’s capability of leveraging our expansive network of vendors and manufacturers has significantly reduced the company’s costs for inspection and repair services. Since 2010, REB has provided inspection and remediation services to 37 states and Puerto Rico.
