Racking Inspections Checklist
The Good to Go Safety Check Book is an innovative tool for workplace equipment. It allows workers to carry out pre-use checks and spot potential faults before they develop into a more serious and costly defect. These safety checklists are designed to help improve safety, reduce maintenance costs and ensure compliance with legal responsibilities.
“SEMA recommend that racking operators are the first line of defence and should always be encouraged to report damage as it occurs. The second line of defence should be a supervisor’s weekly patrol inspection carried out with the express purpose of checking the racking. This should be done at weekly intervals normally at a standard walking pace keeping documented records of the inspection and action points resulting from the inspection. The final level of protection is the formal inspection that should be carried out every 6 or 12 months depending on the level of activity in the warehouse” Ref: Storage Equipment Manufacturers Association (SEMA)
Each check book contains 25 individual checklists relating to components and structural checks to be completed before the racking is used. Duplicate carbon copies of the completed checklists are retained in the book for management records. The book also includes useful guidance notes to remind operatives what to look for during their inspection.
