Workers have been killed and injured when heavy cases of glass or marble have fallen on
them. Most of these heavy cases are unstable because of their weight and shape. When
stored on the worksite they are sometimes stacked on a sloping, uneven surface. Also, they
are often left free standing, instead of being stored and racked properly.
- Stack and store materials so that they will not be a hazard to workers.
- Stabilize heavy cases and containers by proper racking, interlocking, strapping, or other
- Store on a stable, even surface.
