We Are the UK’s Foremost Elf and Safety Experts
Health and safety is a broad term that covers everything from slips, trips and falls on a busy public street, to asbestos removal in old high schools, to a fire escape plan for a pet accessory shop. If it’s a public safety concern, HSE is on it — and they will have some legislation to go with it, too.
While our expertise is HSE’s racking inspection regulations and which racking inspection regulations are legal requirements, we are also quite knowledgeable when it comes to a range of other health and safety issues. It’s why we update our blog five times a month with the latest health and safety news and it’s why we’ve written for a wide range of publications on all kinds of topics. From the history of safety pins to the 12 workplace dangers of Christmas, we have every elf and safety topic imaginable covered.
We Are the Best SEMA Approved Racking Inspectors in the UK
Perhaps we’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again because it’s true! Besides, we aren’t the only ones saying it. Our testimonials speak for themselves.
Then, of course, there is the list of reasons why we are the best. We are the foremost SEMA approved inspectors of pallet racking in London and the South East. Our SEMA approved racking inspector is one of only 34 people in the UK who has passed both the SEMA approved racking inspector course and the SEMA cantilever racking course. We offer both racking inspections and racking inspection training from a SEMA approved racking inspector. We even offer a completely free SEMA racking inspection checklist, as well as an infographic explaining how to use it.
You Don’t Need to Wrap a Safe Warehouse…
…Or put it under a tree, or attach a card to it. It’s not just a gift to your staff, either; it’s a gift to anyone who visits your warehouse, to your business, and to yourself! Safety adds value to your business, with American companies spending a combined total of $170 billion on costs associated with illness and injury — every year.
All that money could be better spent elsewhere. It could be reinvested to help your business grow, or it could be used to give yourself or your staff a raise. It doesn’t take a genius to recognise that extra money is a boon to any business. That’s why safe businesses are so much better.
HSE Recommends a SEMA Approved Racking Inspection Once a Year.
Have you had yours yet? If not, remember that it’s still December. 2016 isn’t quite over yet, so there’s no time like the present to contact SEE for pallet racking inspections or pallet racking inspection training.
An annual racking inspection from a racking inspection “expert” is recommended by HSE in its guidebook for safe warehouse use and safe storage. It mentions SEMA approved racking inspectors by name as an example of what they mean by “expert”. Operating against HSE’s advice is not against the law. However, according to the new CDM regulations, if you don’t follow HSE’s advice and an accident does happen then you — the owner of the warehouse — will be solely responsible.
These new HSE regulations apply to more than just warehouses and more than just racking. In fact, it’s one of the many reasons why a Star Wars production company were in such trouble after Harrison Ford was injured on the Millennium Falcon.
Your warehouse isn’t a spaceship and your staff aren’t Harrison Ford, but the same rules apply. If you want to be sure that you’re on Santa’s “nice” list, follow HSE’s advice and make sure your warehouse has a SEMA approved racking inspection and racking inspection training from SEE!
