How Do I Ensure My Warehouse Racking Is Compliant?

If your Warrington business uses industrial warehouse storage systems, then the key piece of legislation that affects you is the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015.

This legislation lays out the requirements for choosing your warehouse racking installation partner, while the HSE’s warehousing guide provides more information about your responsibilities for checking and maintaining an existing industrial shelving system.

Construction Compliance

The HSE’s Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 relates to all workplace construction, but includes design and installation of industrial racking in Warrington. The regulations place a legal obligation on every business to appoint the right people at the right time, and ensure arrangements are put in place for managing and organising the project.

Complete the due diligence process effectively when choosing a contractor, and any failure of the system during installation will be the responsibility of the contractor. Fail in the due diligence process, and the responsibility could lie with you for selecting an installation company unsuited to the task.

Racking Safety

The HSE’s warehousing guide explores your responsibilities for checking the ongoing state of repair of your Warrington warehouse storage system. The guide requires you to regularly check the racking and, once a year, to have the system reviewed by a “technically competent person” who should produce a written report with observations and proposals.
