First Class Racking Inspections Across Croydon
Accurate, reliable and cost effective racking inspections across Croydon
Working across Croydon and London, we offer planned regular pallet racking inspection services to industrial clients and commercial companies throughout the South East. Large scale storage systems can potentially increase safety risks and concerns if not professionally installed and then maintained, meaning pallet racking inspections should be an essential part of your Croydon warehouse health and safety policy.
It's entirely possible for pallet racking to suffer faults or damage during installation or even suffer damage from a fork lift collision and as you are surely aware, it is your responsibility to make sure that all your racking is still safe and secure afterwards.
As one of Croydon's leading pallet racking companies, we meet and exceed all SEMA inspection standards in our checks to ensure that your industrial pallet racking is still fit for purpose. We will also advise on replacement or reparations where necessary too.
Periodic racking inspections and checks are essential for you to comply with the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) 1998 and should not be limited to six month periods if a collision with a fork lift or other vehicle occurs or if damage is sustained from falling stock or equipment.
So call us today on 01634 296927 to arrange for one of our experienced and dedicated team to visit your Croydon premises and carry out a comprehensive pallet racking inspection.
As one of Croydon and South London's leading suppliers and installers of both new and used pallet racking equipment, we are also able to provide any racking replacements quickly and for very affordable prices too; ensuring that your downtime and disruption is kept to an absolute minimum.
Truly Independent Racking Inspections
Due to the busy nature of any Croydon or South London warehouse environment, fork lifts and pump trucks can at any time unintentionally cause damage to pallet racking systems. While most knocks and bangs may seem minor, they can sometimes have an additional accumulative effect on the structural integrity of the pallet racking, especially if the racking has become overloaded. In order to maintain the safety of your staff and avoid potential damage to stock, pallet racking needs to be regularly monitored and inspected by a technically competent person.
A safety inspection of your adjustable pallet racking is required under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974
Regular racking inspection also fulfils your obligations under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, alongside the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998.
Following the undertaking of your pallet racking inspection, you will be given a comprehensive report.
This racking inspection document, provided to all Croydon clients, can be used as an audit to check the condition of equipment for health and safety purposes.
By following the report's suggestions, you will be able to keep your pallet racking to a legally acceptable standard. For some companies, an annual racking inspection report given by a suitably qualified inspector will be required in order to comply with extensive insurance demands.
Every single one of our racking inspections is carried out in accordance with the Storage Equipment Manufacturers Association (SEMA) Code of Practice. These can be carried out by an external racking inspector who is able to give an independent assessment of the racking. If repairs are still needed, Acorn Storage are able to supply used or new replacement items and offer a full repair service from our team of SIERS registered installers.
We offer one off racking inspections or regular planned inspections as required. For costs and a visit from one of our inspectors to your Croydon premises, please contact us.
