Inspections

Our inspector will arrive on site at the agreed time and bring with them the report from the previous year (providing we have a copy). They will discuss with the PRRS any issues they are having on site and any areas of high frequency damage.

Our inspector will then walk the site thoroughly investigating the racking and making note of any damage and general housekeeping. Before leaving site, the inspector will make the PRRS aware of any concerns that need to be addressed ASAP and will ensure they are complete before leaving.

Once the inspection is complete, our inspector will complete the report and send to the PRRS within 1-2 days.

It’s an HSE recommendation that racking should be inspected once a year by a SEMA qualified racking inspector and once a month throughout the year by the PRRS (Person Responsible for Racking Safety) within your business.

Any damage that occurs should be identified when it occurs, the rack unloaded, and the damage remedied.

Although it is not a legal requirement to have a yearly racking inspection HSE recommend that a yearly racking inspection by a SEMA approved inspector is carried out.

Though the term “recommendation” may not seem as strong a term as “requirement,” don’t let that fool you into thinking you’re less at risk if you’re found not to follow them.

If someone is injured due to poor racking safety, a claimant could prove that the warehouse didn’t follow HSE recommendations and, if convinced, you could be held legally responsible. These recommendations have to be followed to a degree that’s considered “reasonably practicable”.

Yes. Although it is not a legal requirement in the event of an accident you must show proof that recommendations by HSE have been followed to a degree that’s considered “reasonably practicable”.

Taken from ‘Warehousing and storage, A guide to health and safety’ produced by HSE ‘to ensure that a racking installation continues to be serviceable and safe, the storage equipment should be inspected on a regular basis.

The frequency of inspections depends on a variety of factors that are particular to the site concerned and should be determined by a nominated ‘person responsible for racking safety’ (PRRS) to suit the operating conditions of the warehouse. This will take into account the frequency and method of operation together with the dimensions of the warehouse, the equipment used and personnel involved, all of which could damage the structure.
