Pallet racking is considered workplace equipment and as such should be inspected in order for companies to fulfil their Health and Safety obligations in this area. The frequency of inspections will depend on a variety of factors, which will be different for each installation. It is important to keep records of inspections in the event of any accidents. Even in new facilities inspections are important. Occasional damage, stresses over time, changes in the loads being stored, beam levels being altered - all pose risks.
