Inspection and Maintenance
Why Should I Have My Storage Equipment Inspected?
PUWER (Provision and use of Work Equipment Regulations) requires that work equipment is maintained in an efficient state, in efficient working order and in good repair, with checks frequently. All storage equipment (such as pallet racking, cantilever racking and mobile shelving) is work equipment and therefore should be inspected, maintained, and repaired on a regular basis.
The SEMA Code of Practice for Mobile Shelving systems recommends formal inspection is carried out be a specialist engineer on a yearly basis.
