Pallet Racking Inspection Checklist System (Pad of 30)
A simple yet disciplined procedure to help organisations ensure that all of their pallet racking is safe for use.
The pallet racking inspection pad enables an organisation to work through a duplicate checklist and carry out an inspection of their racking ensuring it is safe for use. The top copy of the checklist is displayed on the racking to indicate its safety. The duplicate copy remains in the pad as evidence that the inspection has taken place in the event of an HSE investigation.
At regular intervals, the person responsible for racking safety can simply work down the inspection checklist, checking the safety of each component in turn. This simple procedure helps you to comply with HSE guidance HSG76 Warehousing and Storage which recommends pallet racking be inspected every week as well as the Provision & Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998, commonly referred to as PUWER, which state that all work equipment provided to employees must be maintained and safe to do the job for which it is intended.
Once the inspection is complete, assuming safety has been established, the inspection certificate can be placed inside a safety status indicator on the racking ensuring every employee can clearly see that it is safe for use. Failing racking can be similarly identified and handed over 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.
Each pad allows you to perform 30 inspections on a piece of equipment and is suitable for use with our book paddle kit.
