Pallet racking must be inspected every 12 months, regardless of size, working loads or traffic!
Just like your house and vehicle, unknown problems can develop within storage structures which, when inspected, can be identified before they become an operational problem. Pallet racking workplace inspection checklists can be conducted in varying capacities ranging from spot checks, safety checklist inspections to full warehouse audits. We regularly assist businesses to comply with Australian Standard 4084-2012, which stipulates the requirements for mandatory inspections.
Complementing our professional inspections, we recommend that your own regular in-house assessments be conducted by your forklift operators and management. Our audit events will include operation and maintenance manuals, preliminary advice and data sheets which you can utilise in your own operation. We can further assist in rack operation training and establishing a complete tool kit for your OH&S system.
Elbowroom utilises the services of a dedicated business unit, Inspect-a-RACK for all audits and inspections. Inspect-a-RACK's inspection process has been designed using the industry's "best practices" and in accordance with the requirements of the Australian Standard. The name Inspect-a-RACK is shared with Elbowroom's ground-breaking voice-data-entry program, designed specifically for rack inspections from the ground up. This ensures that EVERY defect can be entered with ease, all data is relevant, and the reports give the customer all of the information they need to action any required improvements (including priority, location, suggested actions, components and more).
