This latest news post by the team at Safety Survey…more »
As the owner of a warehouse-based business, you will know that the risk of serious accidents is ever present and one of the biggest risks to the health and safety of your team is the collapse of poorly installed or damaged racking. This can be avoided by ensuring professional racking inspections are used.
Should racking within your warehouse suddenly collapse, your company will suffer major business disruption, lose a great deal of stock but more importantly, lives could be at risk so the consequences of huge amounts of stock crashing to the floor is simply unthinkable in a busy warehouse.
Here at Safety Survey we can carry out racking inspections that enable you to meet your obligations under HSE and are designed to give you peace of mind that the racking within your warehouse is secure and not at risk of collapse.
Whilst ensuring the safety of your team is important, it is also a legal obligation under PUWER* regulations. With this in mind, you should ensure that your workplace is entirely safe for use by seeking health and safety inspections which will comply with the latest governmental legislation.
Whilst there are many companies that can provide you with a racking inspection service, using an unapproved inspector could invalidate your insurance.
Knowing which company you can trust to provide a completely professional service can be difficult to determine. When seeking the services of a team of racking inspectors, you should consider whether they can provide you with the following:
• Highly experienced and industry-approved inspectors (sema** approved)
• Professional Indemnity Insurance
• A prompt, personal and professional service
• A totally independent and impartial service
• A fully illustrated report upon completion of your inspection
Should you seek the assistance of our team here at Safety Survey, you can expect to benefit from a truly unbeatable service that combines a wealth of experience and expert knowledge on racking safety, with a commitment to providing excellent customer service.
