Fast and Accurate Racking Inspection Across Ashford
We make pallet racking inspection made simple
Working across Ashford, Kent and the South East, we offer planned regular pallet racking inspection services to companies and industrial clients. Large scale storage systems increase safety risks if not professionally installed and maintained, making pallet racking inspections an essential part of your Ashford warehouse health and safety policy.
It's entirely possible for pallet racking to suffer damage from a fork lift collision or faults during installation and as you are no doubt aware, it is your responsibility to ensure that your racking is still secure and safe afterwards.
As one of Ashford's leading pallet racking companies, we meet all SEMA inspection standards in our checks to ensure that the industrial pallet racking is still fit for purpose. We'll also advise on reparations or replacement where necessary too.
Periodic racking checks are essential 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 forklift occurs or other damage is sustained from equipment or falling stock.
So call us today on 01634 296927 to arrange for one of our experienced and dedicated team to visit your Ashford premises and carry out a comprehensive pallet racking inspection.
As one of Ashford and Kent's leading suppliers and installers of both used and new pallet racking equipment, we are also able to provide those replacements quickly and at very affordable prices, ensuring that your disruption and downtime is kept as minimal as possible.
Independent Racking Inspections
Due to the busy nature of any Ashford warehouse environment, pump trucks and forklifts can at times unintentionally cause damage to pallet racking.
While most bangs and knocks may seem minor, they can have an additional cumulative effect on the structural integrity of the racking, particularly if the racking has become overloaded. In order to maintain the safety of your employees and avoid potential expensive damage to stock, pallet racking needs to be monitored with regular inspection 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 and the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998.
Following your racking inspection you will receive a comprehensive report.
This racking inspection report, provided to all Ashford 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 by a suitably qualified inspector will be required in order to comply with insurance demands.
All our inspections are 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 needed, Acorn Storage Equipment are able to supply new or used 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 Ashford premises, please contact us.
