What type of racking inspection do I need?

This depends on whether you need a regular (usually weekly) inspection or an expert (annual) inspection.

Annual expert inspections are usually carried out by third party companies. There is currently no legislation that tells you the type of inspection you need.

Some insurance companies will ask you to have a specific inspection carried out annually. This is likely to be compliant with either SEMA or PUWER guidelines.

If your insurance company does not specify, then the choice is yours to make.

Each inspection we offer ensures your racking is compliant with current legislation.
