Trusted and Reliable Racking Inspections in Watford
Cost effective, reliable and highly accurate racking inspections, provided across Watford by the experts at Acorn Storage.
Working across Hertfordshire, including Watford, we provide planned and regular pallet racking inspection services to commercial companies and industrial clients throughout London and the South East. Large scale storage systems can often increase safety concerns and risks if not professionally installed and then maintained, meaning pallet racking inspections should be an essential part of any Watford warehouse health and safety policy.
It is, of course, entirely possible for pallet racking to suffer damage or faults during installation or even suffer damage from a fork lift collision and as you no doubt already know, it is your responsibility to make sure that all your pallet racking is still secure and safe afterwards.
As one of Watford's leading pallet racking companies, we always meet and exceed all SEMA inspection standards in our pallet racking inspections to ensure that your industrial racking is still fit for purpose. We will also advise on reparations or replacement where necessary too.
Periodic racking checks and inspections are vital if you want 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 vehicle or fork lift occurs or if damage is sustained from falling equipment or stock.
So call us today on 01634 296927 to arrange for one of our experienced and dedicated team to visit your Watford premises and carry out a comprehensive pallet racking inspection.
As one of Watford and Hertfordshire's leading suppliers and installers of both used and new pallet racking equipment, we are also able to provide any pallet racking replacements quickly and for very affordable prices too; making sure that your disruption and downtime is kept to an absolute minimum.
Truly Independent Racking Inspections
Due to the very busy nature of any Hertfordshire or Watford warehouse or factory environment, pump trucks and fork lifts can unintentionally cause damage to pallet racking systems at any time. While most bangs and knocks may seem minor, they can sometimes have an additional accumulative effect on the structural integrity of the 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
Planned and 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.
After the undertaking of your pallet racking inspection, we will give you a comprehensive report that details all our findings.
This racking inspection document, provided to all our Watford clients, can be used as an audit to check the condition of all 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 pallet racking inspections is carried out 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 still needed, Acorn Storage 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 Watford premises, please contact us.
