The Health & Safety Executive and regulations laid down by PUWER include pallet racking and shelving used in the workplace as being classified as work equipment. Consequently your racking and storage systems should be regularly inspected by a competent person and records maintained that clearly identify damage or defects found and corrective actions taken to satisfactorily return the systems so they are fit for purpose.
Periodic inspection of racking systems will ensure that your equipment, stock and operatives are all working in a safe environment. Identification of equipment damage and providing corrective actions and reports will satisfy your Quality Management and Health & Safety policy requirements. Ongoing reporting will also identify trends and highlight such things as poor fork truck driving or poor housekeeping within the work place.
