Comprehensive, detailed assessments that are fully HSE compliant

Are racking inspections a legal requirement?

No. However in not having an annual racking inspection, employers and warehouse owners go against HSE advice. This means that if an accident involving racking were to happen, they would be both legally and morally responsible. It could be argued that by not having racking that has been regularly inspected, safety was was not ensured 'so far as reasonably practicable'.

HSE, SEMA and HFT all recommend a SEMA approved inspection at least once a year. We pride ourselves on our knowledge of pallet racking inspection requirements and on what makes a SEMA inspection industry leading and HSE approved.
