Key items to consider in the use of wooden pallets.

1 Safety:

Whether you are considering reusing a used pallet within your business or using a system pallet for continuous reuse, consider these key points in your decision to ensure the pallet is safe and meets the required tolerances.

No broken, loose, or severely cracked boards – Depending on your environment, broken boards and wooden splinters can be a risk for safety or product damage. This can also cause automated lines to shut down where pallet tolerances are not met.

No damaged stringers with large cracks or missing pieces from the ends – Pallets with stringer damage should not be considered structurally sound in any situation. These components form the main structure of the pallet and will not support product applications, or proper handling if severely damaged.

It is not weathered from the elements to a point of warping or weakness – Wood will oxidize over time exposed to the elements. Understanding the integrity of the pallet at this stage would be difficult for the average person. Do not consider reusing.

Has no visible protruding nails – exposed nail tips, and nail heads can cause product damage, and safety risks in the manual handling process.

Is reasonably clean especially in sensitive environments – Pallets should have no loose dirt or debris or foreign matter present. Contaminated pallets should be diguarded to ensure there is no product contamination.
