The Real Mess at Russian Super Mart

mess in Russian super mart 1

When the workers of this mart came in the morning they found the warehouse being in a big mess. As a short investigation has discovered that there was a crash in the night. A guy driving the electric loader crashed the shelves stand and five stores of good were ruined. He was not injured by a big luck and when he ran away from the falling stuff he even lost one of his snickers inside the car.

  1. Glad that no one was injured. What a mess. The rack equipment can be made more stable by connecting the back-to-back racks together. Racks that tall also need to have front horizontal supports installed all along the bottom locations. If material needs to be assessible by floor jacks, rack height should be reduced. Good employee Health and Safety practices saves lives and money.

      • Yes. We had similar rack equipment. They do have rails on the ends tying sections together at the bottom, and there are shields around the legs, which is good. The damage was relatively isolated to a few sections which is also good. I have heard of an accident in another warehouse where they had single rows of racks. A fork lift driver somehow managed to knock down an entire row over into the next row. Six rows went down like dominos with the last row going through the wall. The driver was not hurt and no one else was in the area at the time.

      • More than likely. He’s outlining standard storage rack construction for proper load bearing and safety.

        In an earthquake, this place will be a mess with total loss on a pretty high percentage of the goods.

  2. Thank goodness the first rack collapsing didn’t cause the next one to fall starting a chain reaction and so on…

    I’m gonna think twice before going to costco next time

  3. I see a lot of Dutch brand names. Cup-a-soup, Libero, Kitekat, Whiskas, Evian… isn’t it Dutch supermarket ? Or is Holland the biggest supplier of Russian supermarkets ?

  4. why didnt they let the russians in? the place would have been cleaned in no time, remember what did they do with nuts?
    think of what would happen if it wasn’t for nuts, if it was for kitekat.

    • Great idea 😉 The majority of the stuff is probably thrown away anyways, so why not let the average russians loot the area.

      But seriously, I wonder if the racks are installed properly on the ground and to eachothers, because I have worked with forklifts like the one found in the mess and they arent very powerful. So I guess the quilty person must have initiated some kind of a domino-effect, meaning that the rack must have had some fishy business before the collapse.

      • As far as I can see the shelves are quite “top heavy” loaded. I don’t know how it is done in a warehouse but at home I try to stack heavy objects lower in my bookshelves.

        Those steel bars both bent and snapped right of as in the photos. Maybe it was overloaded?

  5. So Estonia is not Russia!

    It’s in Estonian warehouse and nobody was not drunk. It was loader driver error in vorkhouers not in the night.
