Industrial Racking Damage Surveys & Safety Assessments

Make sure your pallet racking systems and industrial shelving are HSE compliant.

Warehouse storage systems are safe, secure ways of storing high volume, high density goods. But over time, industrial racking systems can be weakened by forklift collisions and knocks whilst unloading and unloading.

Failures are thankfully rare, but when an industrial storage system does fail, it can set up a chain reaction that can see the entire structure collapse, damaging stored goods and potentially killing anyone in the vicinity.

In 2013, for example, a Northamptonshire paper company was fined £70,000 when a racking system collapsed, causing fatal injuries to the worker nearby.

To avoid such incidents, the Health & Safety Executive requires warehouse storage systems to be checked weekly by “a responsible person”. Then, every 12 months (minimum), your racking system must be inspected by a “technically competent person”.

Rack-Master Storage Systems inspects racking systems in Wakefield, and ensures your business is compliant.

How much does a Racking Damage Survey cost?

Our Wakefield Racking Damage Surveys typically cost £250.00 per day + VAT. The written report which includes a full site layout plan, costs £150.00 + VAT.

Your Racking Damage Survey will include:

  • A detailed visual inspection of your industrial storage system, carried out on site, with damage (and its location) identified on inspection sheets.
  • A written report detailing the racking inspection, the damage found and its location. In addition to being an HSE requirement, the report will also enable you to check the damage for yourself, and obtain quotes for repair.
  • A competitive quote for any repair work identified in the report (although you are under no obligation to accept it).

How long will my Racking Damage Survey take?

Usually one day. Occasionally, the scale of industrial racking or the level of damage can require longer.
