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 PRRS (Person Responsible for Racking Safety) 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.
