Who should carry out Warehouse Racking Inspections?

According to HSE publication "Warehousing and Storage – A guide to health and safety" (HSG76);

A technically competent person should carry out inspections at intervals of not more than 12 months. A written report should be submitted to the PRRS with observations and proposals for any action necessary
A technically competent person might be a trained specialist within an organization, a specialist from the rack supplier, or an independent qualified rack inspector.

            Once the inspection has been done, the next process would be to repair the damaged racking and get it back to a fit for purpose condition, and ensuring that operations can safely be carried out.

            Every Warehouse is subject to Racking Repairs!

                            In any warehouse damage to pallet racking has become somewhat inevitable. Pallet racking is a very interactive product that gets damaged during the day to day operations. When damages occur, it is natural to ask who did it and what happened. From a business and operational perspective, we all know that it’s most important to retain the integrity of the structure before it escalates and hampers safety and or productivity.

                            Racking damage can occur for many reasons such as poor housekeeping, operator error and lack of maintenance. Sometimes the damage may not look as serious as it is.

                            Fortunately, racking is designed with safety factors allowing for minor bumps and scratches, but what happens when we have damage that is more on the major side. How do we even determine which is which?
