When should I book an inspection?

Annual warehouse racking inspections are required as a minimum under PUWER, so by booking an annual inspection today, you can ensure your business remains safe, compliant and productive.

The frequency of pallet racking inspections required depends on a variety of factors that are particular to your site but, typically, the first inspection should be carried out within 6 months of the installation becoming operational and at least once a year from then on.

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.
