SEMA Approved Racking Inspections
Pegasus’ in-house SEMA Approved Inspectors acquire an abundance of knowledge when it comes to health and safety. Ensuring the health and safety of your work environment Pegasus provide a full storage system survey in which customers are provided with a drawing of the layout of their warehouse that identifies risks and the severity of them.
Racking system collapses can sometimes lead to personnel suffering major injury or death. Therefore, periodic pallet racking inspections are essential to ensuring the health and safety of the environment your workforce is operating in, and in compliance with HSE requirements.
Over the year general knocks through daily use can cause changes in the capacity of your racking and potentially lead to accidents.
Pegasus’ SEMA trained inspectors have many years’ experience of inspecting all types of pallet racking systems including:
- Shelving systems
- Pallet racking systems
- Cantilever racks
- Drive-in and drive-through racking
- Live storage systems
- Multi-tier shelving systems
- Mezzanine systems
Pegasus provide a full storage system survey in which our customers are provided with a drawing of the layout of their warehouse that identifies risks and the severity of them. The benefits of using a SEMA approved inspector is that the qualification is recognised by the HSE and adheres to the highest standards set out by SEMA.
Maintaining rack safety is a legal obligation. Under the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations of 1992 and the Provision of Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) of 1998, employers are legally required to inspect their work equipment, including all pallet racking. This means even as little as one bay of pallet racking requires an examination by a competent or SEMA approved individual.
Why do I need a Racking Inspection?
- Other than pallet racking inspections being a statutory requirement under Health and Safety Legislation, regular inspections help to minimise the number and severity of warehouse accidents.
- Inspections help prevent large repair bills from the negligence of your pallet racking.
- Preventing the risk of racking potentially collapsing or being overloaded due to damages.
Pallet racking inspections are a statutory requirement under Health and Safety Legislation and must be conducted at least once a year by a SEMA approved or technically competent person.
