Frequency of inspections

Just as you would have your accounts externally audited once a year, we recommend that you have an annual racking inspection. More frequent inspections may be required if your warehouse has a high level of activity. It is a good idea to carry out weekly inspections and we would encourage you to ask us about training your staff to do this. If you notice any damage and want a second opinion, please send us a photo and we’ll be more than happy to offer advice.

It is important to keep records of all inspections. 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.
