    The way the shelving failed it seemed it was overloaded. Made me think about how one can stand on an aluminum can with out it crushing but touch the side and wham it is crushed.. Not that he was going to make it by with that load anyhow...

    I kinda wonder about how legit this footage is. The reason is my works warehouse has OSHA and the Fire Department come through on an annual basis and you are required to have your uprights bolted down. Also if your cross bars are over a certain amount of feet off the ground those are also suppose to have a safety bolt keeping them from being accidentally knocked off if hit with a fork or pallet. That bolt is on top of the two pins that clip into the upright and some cross bars have a built in spring loaded type of safety pin that snaps in when the cross bar is locked in. And by looking at the size of this warehouse I am sure the Fire Department and OSHA have come threw and looked it over.

    Also in our warehouse we have had several uprights and cross bars hit and bent over the years. And we have never had even one section come down. A matter of fact we had one guy hit a upright leg square with the front of the fork and he sheared threw about 80% of the leg and nothing happened. We had to tear down a large section to replace it but we did not even have one pallet fall off the pallet racking. And I will say taking sections down is a pain. The dont always come down easy. I just dont see 6 sections folding over like domino's. The way that racking came down you would think they had charges at the legs like you would do to take a building down.

    He clipped the support with what he had on the forks.
