A Racking Damage Survey may be a legal requirement – but compliance doesn’t have to be difficult.

Racking Damage Surveys and Safety Assessments in Bradford

It’s time to check your industrial pallet racking?

In 2013, a worker in Dublin died when warehouse pallet racking carrying 40 tons of cheese collapsed on him. What was a personal tragedy for the man and his family also had far reaching implications for the business, with fines amounting to €200,000.

The collapse happened because, the investigation believed, the warehouse racking used was not suitable for the loads involved. Had it been checked, the buckling of the warehouse storage system would likely have been spotted.

That’s the reason the HSE requires business that use pallet racking to check the structure regularly. Any responsible person within your organisation can carry out weekly checks, but every 12 months your industrial storage equipment must be inspected by a “technically competent person” who should also produce a report.
