Pallet Racking Inspections

Storage Equipment Inspections

If your business utilises storage equipment such as pallet racking, cantilever racking, shelving and mezzanine floors, then you have a legal obligation and a duty of care to carry out an annual expert inspection, this is in addition to your in-house storage equipment inspections.

Whilst many companies may have employees that have attended some form of rack inspection training or Teepee Inspect ‘racking awareness, safety and inspection course’, this does not provide them with the necessary qualifications, technical competency or relevant insurance cover to carry out an annual SEMA expert racking inspection to meet legal requirements.

SEMA Racking Inspections

SEMA (Storage Equipment Manufacturers Association) is an organisation that is committed to promoting and extending the safe design, installation and inspection of pallet racking, cantilever racking, shelving and mezzanine floors. Using a SEMA approved inspector (SARI) the storage equipment industry’s leading and most recognised qualification, you can be assured that all storage equipment inspections will be following the latest industry and H&S legislation.

Established in 1987, Teepee’s in-house SEMA racking inspectors are fully qualified and insured, offering unbiased and impartial advice when storage equipment inspecting. Once an in-depth on-site inspection has taken place, our inspector will de-brief relevant supervisors/managers highlighting any areas that may require immediate off-loading, and offer independent advice and solution options if any further issues are raised during the inspection.

An electronic report will be produced and sent under SEMA inspection guidelines detailing specification, condition, and damage list (using the SEMA red, amber and green classifications) by location and photographic evidence to enable any remedial works by your approved supplier.

Furthermore, within the report advice will give reference to load notice signage, general housekeeping and recommendations including any safety measures that can be implemented in advance ensuring that your racking is protected between inspections and keeping your repair costs to a minimum.
