A free warehouse racking inspection checklist is a vital part of any warehouse. Whether you’re a warehouse owner, a warehouse manager, or the Person Responsible for Racking Safety (PRRS) in your company’s warehouse, a checklist is key to helping you to achieve optimum warehouse safety. We recognise how important a pallet racking inspection checklist is for anyone concerned with safety. That’s why we offer ours for free, and why we want to guide you through the process of claiming yours. But first…
What is a Warehouse Racking Inspection Checklist?
A pallet racking inspection checklist template is a document, usually printed or in a PDF format, which allows you to keep track of what parts of a racking system have been inspected. It’s designed for the regular internal, staff-performed racking inspections which HSE recommends. These inspections should be carried out alongside the annual, third-party racking inspections they recommend from a racking inspection expert, such as a SEMA approved racking inspector, for complete warehouse safety.
It’s a simple enough idea, but simple ideas can go a long way — especially when it comes to safety. Despite their simplicity, however, some warehouse racking inspection checklists are better than others.
What Makes a Good Pallet Racking Inspection Checklist?
A good pallet racking inspection checklist is a PDF document, organised into easy-to-understand columns with accurate terminology indicating which parts of your racking system should be inspected in a specific order. PDFs are the best to use because they are self-contained, secure files that are easy to compress.
Finally, the checklist should have been created by a racking inspection expert, preferably a SEMA approved racking inspector, and it should be designed to be useful for anyone — rack safety experts or otherwise.
What Makes Our Pallet Racking Inspection Checklist the Template for How All The Others Should Look?
Our template follows all of the above criteria to the letter. What’s more, we’ve even designed a supplementary infographic to go with the PDF document. The infographic explains what each piece of terminology listed on the warehouse racking inspection checklist is, where you can find it, what it looks like, and what it does (or should be) doing if your racking is working properly. So, now you know cialis 24 hr why ours is the best, here’s how you can claim it…

1. We Strongly Recommend Racking Inspection Training for Internal Racking Inspections
Internal racking inspections should not be carried out by just anyone. The Person Responsible for Racking Safety (PRRS) in your business should be a capable person who understands the responsibility of their role. As such, they should have racking inspection training from a racking inspection expert in order for them to use the warehouse racking inspection checklist properly.
We do not recommend that an untrained person uses a racking inspection checklist to perform an internal racking inspection. Even with our supplementary material, they wouldn’t have the training to know exactly what they were looking for. Pallet racking inspection training is vital for any staff member who intends on performing an internal pallet racking inspection.
And so, by far the best way of ensuring that your internal racking inspections are carried out as a safely as possible is by giving all of your staff racking inspection training from a SEMA approved racking inspector. As well as our free warehouse racking inspection checklist, we at Storage Equipment Experts also offer the best racking inspection training in the UK.
2. Warehouses Need Annual Racking Inspections from a Racking Inspection Expert, Too
In order to follow HSE’s advice, your warehouse will also need a pallet rack safety inspection from a racking inspection expert “at least once a year”. HSE labels SEMA approved racking inspectors as racking inspection “experts”. It’s also important to remember that HSE recommends these expert racking inspections “at least once a year”. You can never be too safe and so, if you are in any doubt whatsoever about the state of your racking, Storage Equipment Experts are only a phone-call away. We offer racking inspections by a SEMA approved racking inspector to businesses anywhere in the UK.
Be on the safe side! Download our warehouse racking inspection checklist, make sure your staff receive a racking inspection training course from a SEMA approved racking inspector so they can use it, and be sure your business also receives a visit from a SEMA approved racking inspector at least once a year.
