Pallet Racking Pre-Use Visual Inspection Checklist System (Pad of 30)
Wherever you find fork lift trucks, you usually find pallet racking. Considering the weight each section of racking supports and the chances of collision with a fork lift, it’s important that the racking is regularly inspected and checked so that there is no chance of collapse. The pallet racking inspection pad helps businesses perform their pre-use or daily safety inspections. The checklist is designed to help you comply with your duty of care under HSE guidance and PUWER. The duplicate checklist design creates two signed copies of each inspection and incorporates a PASS/FAIL notice. Each pad has 30 checklists and is used in tandem with a hi-vis display wallet

How to use
On a regular or weekly basis the nominated person responsible for racking safety can simply work down the inspection checklist, checking the safety of each component in turn. Once the inspection is complete, assuming safety has been established, the green PASS inspection certificate can be placed inside a safety status indicator on the racking ensuring that everyone can clearly see that it is safe for use. Failing racking can be similarly identified by a red FAIL certificate and reported for maintenance. The duplicate copy of the certificate remains inside the inspection pad and can be used as evidence of inspections should you ever need to produce this for the HSE or other official parties.
