Why do you need a Pallet Racking Inspection?

It is a statutory requirement under Health and Safety Legislation

Provision & Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) 1998 state that: “A technically competent person should carry out inspections at intervals of not more than 12 months. A written report should be submitted to the PRRS with observations and proposals for any action necessary”

To help ensure a safer working environment

Any racking damage that has not been seen or dealt with could lead to safety issues. In worst case scenarios pallet racking damage/collapses can cause injuries or worse to any individual. Pallet Racking collapses occur every week in the UK, therefore it is important not to put a workforces safety at risk.

To see a reduction in your insurance premiums

A reduction in your insurance premiums will come from being able to present a certificate stating that the Pallet Racking is safe therefore reducing the risk of injuries to a workforce.

When do I need a Pallet Racking Inspection?

In order to ensure that you are compliant with Health and Safety Regulations you should have your racking inspected:

  • Annually by a technically competent person as a minimum, you may require more regular inspections dependent upon the level of damage identified.
  • Following any significant changes to your warehouse layout or warehouse system.
  • Within 4 to 6 months of any new installation.
