Rack Safety Inspections

Why do I need a rack safety inspection?

The short answer is “health and safety”. As a responsible employer, you want to ensure that your working environment is as safe as possible. The Health & Safety Executive recommend that annual inspections are undertaken by a “Technically competent person” on at least an annual basis. There is also legislation to consider and by having a rack safety inspection carried out you are demonstrating compliance with the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER 1998).

Additionally, there may be commercial implications as a thorough inspection of your racking might identify specific reasons for the damage, or identify an on-going efficiency or cost issue on which we can offer advice or guidance.
