When Was Your Last Racking Inspection Carried Out?

July 4th, 2022
racking maintenance

If you struggle to remember the last time you carried out an inspection for your racking system, it’s not too late to get it done now. Your racking system carries dead load and live loads so it’s crucial that every single component is in tip top condition, at all times.

The racking structure is made up of two main elements;

  1. Beams – comprising beam section, end connectors and safely locks
  2. Frames – comprising uprights, bracing and baseplates

Each item should be inspected according to AS4084 and FEM standards which come with recommended inspection intervals.

They are:

Daily inspections

  • Conducted by the operator of the system.
  • Implementing inspections on a daily basis ensure:
  • No damages occurred due to incorrect application and use of MHE
  • Safe working loads are adhered to
  • Damaged pallets are not loaded onto the racking system

 

Weekly inspections

  • Visual inspection from the ground level, carried out by the Safety Officer based on a prepared checklist. This is a good practice to ensure that any faults or issues are found and dealt with immediately.

 

Monthly inspections

  • Includes emptying random bays to carry out a more detailed inspection of the components.

The scope would also ensure:

  • Safe working load signages and safety signs are in place
  • Any components with damages identified as ‘Very Serious’ or ‘Hazardous’ have been isolated and actions have been taken to rectify those risks.

 

Six to Twelve Month Inspections

  • This is a comprehensive inspection and includes checking that no modifications of the structure have taken place. A copy of the load application and configuration drawings is retained and referred to during the inspection.
  • This inspection is conducted by a technically competent officer who is experienced in identifying and categorising rack damage.

 

When it comes to damages to racking systems, it is recommended that parts or components are replaced, not repaired.  Not placing emphasis on this could result in severe consequences to the safety of the team, and to the business.

 

The team at Dexion is experienced in carrying out racking inspections and maintenance works.
