Pallet Racking Inspections

Why are racking inspections needed?

  • Racking inspections are an integral part of NSI’s System of Rack Safety
  • All pallet racking should be properly maintained and in good order. Racking safety inspections are required to comply with the PUWER (The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations) guidelines, in order to maintain health and safety standards and to prevent and minimise the effect of accidents in the workplace. The regulations clearly state that racking should be regularly inspected by a person proven competent to do so.
  • The majority of our customers elect for an annual formal racking inspection by our qualified SARI (SEMA Authorised Rack Inspector), however, in incidents of high traffic or serious damage, these formal inspections will be carried out every 6 months.  In addition, customers also conduct their own weekly and monthly visual checks, trained by our SARI in how to do this.

Benefits of Regular Rack Inspections

  • All racking inspections are carried out in accordance with SEMA Racking Inspection guidelines and ensure your racking is compliant with the law.
  • We offer a fast efficient pallet racking inspection service backed up by a detailed rack inspection report and comprehensive rack damage summaries which break down the damage by risk level and damage type.
  • Easy to understand, jargon-free inspection report.
  • We provide a personal service ensuring confidence and continuity from a SEMA-approved rack inspector (SARI), who will get to know your installation in great detail and offer an easy-to-understand, jargon-free inspection report.
  • A formal notice of all RED RISK items is issued on the day of the inspection so immediate action can be taken by you to offload an unsafe rack.
  • We also offer customised onsite pallet rack inspection training allowing you to conduct your regular internal weekly and monthly inspections in compliance with HSE guidelines as defined in HSG 76.

Shuttle Racking System

For clients for whom ultra-high density pallet storage is important, a shuttle racking system can be the answer. The concept is based around the fact that the forklift never enters the racking, individual pallet movements being conducted on intelligent RF guided shuttles that operate on rails millimetres below each pallet.
