A building with the sole purpose of storage needs to be safe and secure; this is why warehouse safety and racking inspections are so important. Without them, warehouses could not function. Without warehouses, we wouldn’t have had an Industrial Revolution. As such, it’s almost impossible to overplay the importance, influence and significance of warehouses and their safety for modern life.
How Thorough Is This Guide?
In our three-volume guide, we break down every element of warehouse safety and racking inspections. From the big ideas to the most specific of definitions, we have absolutely everything covered. Our advice is thoroughly researched and well-sourced. A lot of it of it comes from HSE’s HSG76, but our guide is also formulated by advice from British law, HSA, the EU and SEMA. Most importantly, it’s been written by a SEMA approved racking inspector who is one of the few people in the world to have also passed SEMA’s cantilever racking inspection course as well.
