Industrial Warehouse Racking Compliance

The consequences of failure of an industrial pallet racking system can be dramatic and costly. From damaged goods and racking to reputational harm and even worker injury or death, as recent examples have shown, a racking collapse is not something to take lightly.

The HSE doesn’t take it lightly either, which is why it polices two pieces of legislation aimed at ensuring industrial warehouse storage systems in Doncaster are installed and maintained by qualified experts.

Construction Compliance

The law doesn’t expect you to be an expert in industrial storage or warehouse racking systems. But it does expect you to ensure that the people you commission to do the job are qualified to do so.

The HSE’s Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 require you (amongst other things) to appoint the right people at the right time, and ensure arrangements are put in place for managing and organising the project.

Effectively, the regulation makes the choice of contractor a potentially critical one in determining whether, in the event of an industrial racking collapse, the fault lies with the contractor, or with you for choosing a contractor unsuitable for the job.

Racking Safety

Once installed and in use, the industrial racking system in your Doncaster warehouse must be regularly inspected by a “responsible person” for signs of damage. This can be carried out internally but, once a year, the HSE’s warehousing guide states that your Doncaster warehouse storage must also be checked by a “technically competent person” who should produce a written report with observations and proposals.

Rack-Master's specialists are qualified to carry out pallet racking inspections in Doncaster. You can find out more here.
