HSE GUIDELINES

641 In general, racking is manufactured from relatively lightweight materials and, as a consequence, there is a limit to the amount of abuse that it can withstand. The skill of a fork truck operators has a great bearing on the amount of damage likely to be caused. Any damage to racking will reduce its load carrying capacity. The greater the damage the less its strength will be.

642 To ensure that a racking installation continues to be serviceable and safe, the storage equipment should be inspected on a regular basis. the frequency of the inspections depends on a variety of factors that are particular to the site concerned and should be determined by a nominated ‘person responsible for racking safety’ (PRRS) to suit the operating conditions of the warehouse. This will take into account the frequency and method of operation together with the dimensions of the warehouse, the equipment used and personnel involved, all of which could damage the structure. The inspection follows a hierarchical approach using several levels of inspection.

IMMEDIATE REPORTING

643 As soon as a safety problem or damage is observed by any employee, it should be immediately reported to the PRRS. You should have systems in place for reporting damage and defects.

644 Employees should receive training, information and instruction on the safe operation of the racking system, including the parts affecting their safety and the safety of others.

VISUAL INSPECTIONS

645 The PRRS should ensure that inspections are made on a weekly or other regular intervals based on risk assessment. A written record should be maintained.

VISUAL INSPECTIONS

646 A technically competent person should carry out inspections at intervals of not more than 12 months. A written report should be submitted to the PRRS with the observations and proposals for any action necessary.

647 A technically competent person might be a trained specialist within an organisation, a specialist from the rack supplier, or an independent qualified rack inspector.

648 A programme of rack awareness training is run regularly by SEMA to address the issue of visual inspection and a more formal course is run to qualified expert inspectors under the SARI (SEMA approved rack inspector) scheme.

649 Normal rack inspections will be carried out at ground level unless there are indications of problems at high level that need investigating.
