Trusted Racking Inspection in Chislehurst
Working across Kent and the South East, including Chislehurst, we specialise in offering planned regular pallet racking inspection services to industrial and commercial clients. Large scale storage systems increase safety risks if not professionally installed and maintained, making pallet racking inspections a hugely important part of any Chislehurst warehouse health and safety policy.
It is entirely possible for pallet racking to suffer faults during installation or damage from a forklift collision and as you are no doubt aware, it is your responsibility to ensure that your pallet racking is still safe and secure afterwards.
As one of Kent and Chislehurst's leading pallet racking companies, we meet all SEMA inspection standards in our checks to make sure that the industrial pallet racking is still fit for purpose. We will also advise you on replacement or reparations where necessary too.
Periodic racking checks are absolutely 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 falling stock or equipment.
So call us today on 01634 296927 to arrange for one of our experienced and dedicated team to visit your Chislehurst premises and carry out a comprehensive pallet racking inspection.
As one of Kent and Chislehurst's leading installers and suppliers of new pallet racking equipment, we are also able to provide those replacements quickly and at very affordable prices, ensuring that your downtime and disruption to kept to an absolute minimum.
Independent Pallet Racking Inspections
Due to the busy nature of any Chislehurst warehouse environment, forklifts and pump trucks can at times unintentionally cause damage to pallet racking.
While most knocks and bangs may seem relatively minor, they can often have an additional cumulative effect on the structural integrity of the pallet racking, especially 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 through regular inspection by an experienced and 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, which can be used as an audit to check the condition of equipment for health and safety purposes too.
By following the report's recommendations and suggestions, you will be able to keep your pallet racking to a legally acceptable standard. For some Chislehurst and Kent companies, an annual racking inspection report by a suitably qualified and experienced inspector will be needed in order to comply with insurance demands.
All our pallet racking inspections are undertaken in accordance with the Storage Equipment Manufacturers Association (SEMA) Code of Practice. These can be undertaken by an external racking inspector, who will be able to give an independent assessment of the racking. If repairs are needed, Acorn Storage Equipment are able to supply new replacement items and offer a full repair service from our team of SEIRS 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 Chislehurst or Kent premises, please contact us.
