Operating with sub-standard racking can increase the chance of damage to stored goods also accidents and injuries to employees or members of the public.
It is the employer’s ultimate responsibility for rack safety which carries significant legal liabilities in the event of an accident.
Warehouse racking systems are classed as work equipment and as such should be inspected in line with PUWER (Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998) regulations. For normal working conditions rack inspections should be carried out by a technically competent person at no more than twelve month intervals. Where equipment is subject to persistent use in harsh conditions more frequent racking inspections may be required.
