Pallet Racking Safety Inspection: Health and Safety in your work place is of paramount importance to the operation of your business. An Annual Rack Safety Inspection forms part of your safety at work strategy. All Work Equipment must comply with both the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 and PUWER – the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998.
Regular inspections of your storage equipment will help you ensure your warehouse is a safe place in which to work. A 2h Rack Safety Inspection is carried out in accordance with the Storage Equipment Manufacturers Association (SEMA) Guideline No. 6 – Guide to the Conduct of Pallet Racking and Shelving Surveys. The frequency of your inspections depends on a wide variety of factors that are particular to your site, but the first inspection is normally carried out within 6 months of the installation becoming operational and thereafter at a maximum of 12 month intervals, depending on the amount of damage sustained.
Regular Rack Inspections help your business:
- Comply with the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974
- Comply with Work Equipment Regulations 5 & 6 1998
- Investigate the causes of damage and improved operating methods
- Identify essential repairs
- Reduce damage and maintenance costs in the future.
- Document inspections and maintenance of your ‘Work Equipment’
