“Helping you comply with the Health & Safety regulations”
Semco manufacture a comprehensive range of racking protection products designed to help you to ensure your warehouse, factory or yard complies with all the relevant Health & Safety regulations. Many requirements are implied under Health & Safety legislation across Europe. Whilst there are arguments for and against using Uprights/Post Protectors in Pallet Racking systems it is recognised as good practice to fit Protection Barriers at all exposed ends of runs of racking.
The Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 requires you to:
- Provide safe systems and equipment for using, handling, storing and transporting articles and substances.
- Provide the relevant information, instruction, training and supervision as is necessary to ensure the health and safety at work of employees.
Health & Safety Inspectors and Environmental Health Officers will actively check for racking damage on your site. Taking the time and effort necessary to implement the additional safety measures to protect your racking could make the difference between damage which can be quickly resolved, and critical damage which could potentially result in a collapse.
