- And of course, proper follow-up should occur to ensure you keep the level of safety up using good MRO methodology

For example, if you’re looking to boost the security of your flue space and the backs of your racks, you should opt for either our affordable Rack Safety Straps ,or the Fixed Rack Safety Net made with high-visibility yellow netting. On the other hand, if you’re looking to protect the areas in front of your racks or if your racks are in a single line configuration and not back-to-back, opt for Modular Safety Netting, which keeps loose cartons or objects from falling into a workspace, aisleway, or onto equipment.
