How Frequently Should You Do a Racking Inspection?

Posted on by safety-admin

When you are in charge of a warehouse, a racking inspection is not only highly recommended but also a legal requirement under PUWER and forms part of your health and safety obligations. Inspections such as this should be undertaken weekly or monthly by your own trained staff and at least once a year by an independent specialist inspector Our professional team of SARI inspectors and here at Safety Survey can carry out  sema approved racking inspections and are the ideal choice to ensure your warehouse is as safe as possible and in full compliance of all associated legislation.

We provide regular annual racking inspections to many “Blue Chip” companies throughout the UK in order to reduce the chances of any accidents occurring within premises that house large amounts of goods within storage racking systems.

In addition to enhance safe storage and practices within your business, a regularly carried out racking inspection is highly beneficial when renewing your employers liability insurance as our service may help to lower the premium you pay.

Our safety inspections can be carried out in accordance with the sema code of practice for any new racking system that has been implemented at your warehouse, as well as checking the condition and overall safety of an existing system on either a six monthly or annual basis to ensure initial specifications continue to be met.

As a conscientious owner of a warehouse storage facility, you will undoubtedly have your own internal system that ensures pallet racking safety is never compromised; but if this is not the case, Safety Survey can also organise on-site training for your staff and assist with the setting up of a racking safety regime.

Our trusted team are on hand to compliment this so you can rest assured in-house routines will not be disturbed as a result of our visit.

Statistics state that a racking collapse occurs every week within the UK alone; not only can this compromise the safety of workers and visitors, it could also lead to loss of stock and in turn, loss of earnings.
Ensure this is not a situation you find yourself in by calling our experts today.
