Do You Know If Your Racking Is Safe?

In the bustling landscape of warehouses and storage facilities, safety isn’t a one-time consideration confined to the point of racking purchase. It’s an ongoing commitment that extends from design and supply to installation, training, and regular inspections. At NSI Projects, we recognise the gravity of this responsibility and advocate for a holistic approach to racking safety.

1. Design and Supply:

The foundation of a safe racking system begins with design and supply. Under CDM 2015 regulations, clients bear the responsibility of ensuring their suppliers meet stringent safety standards. In a market flooded with options, distinguishing trustworthy suppliers becomes paramount. NSI Projects stands out by adhering to SEMA Design Codes and the European Code EN:15512. Our credentials are backed by independent assessments, assuring clients of work done to the highest safety and quality standards.

2. Installation:

Often overlooked, the safety of racking installations is a critical facet of the process. Racking is a precisely engineered piece of equipment that demands accuracy during installation. While it may be tempting to trust the installation crew provided by your supplier, meeting Health and Safety (H&S) requirements requires more than assumptions. SEMA’s SEIRS training programme establishes clear guidelines, ensuring that any installer with a SEIRS Diploma has met the highest industry standards through formal training.

3. Training:

Once installed, training in the proper use of equipment is central to creating a safe working environment. While racking is designed to endure daily wear and tear, a small, unchecked knock can escalate into a serious problem, compromising safety. Our Rack Safety Awareness Course goes beyond instructing employees on identifying racking damage; it also emphasizes safe usage of the equipment, empowering your team to contribute to a secure working environment.

4. Inspection:

Regular inspections form the backbone of a robust racking safety strategy. This three-step process includes daily checks by staff, weekly inspections by a nominated employee ensuring correct usage and recording damage levels, and annual inspections by a professionally qualified racking inspector. Our SEMA Approved Racking Inspector (SARI) conducts thorough assessments, providing detailed reports covering equipment suitability, compatibility, necessary repairs, and recommended timescales.
