Legal Compliance Requires:
An annual or bi-annual inspection of your racking by a technically competent person ie the SEMA Approved Rack Inspector.
With S.E.M.CO’s extensive knowledge of Storage Equipment and its use within any sector or environment, you can be assured of expert advice when it comes to Rack Safety and Inspections.
Damage to Storage Systems whether operationally they are within an internal or external environment, is a common problem, particularly in busy operations where there is a high volume of handing traffic.
Damage to Racking can frequently go unnoticed and as such is not recorded. Failure to rack components can result in serious injury to personnel as well as severe disruption to work time activity.
S.E.M.CO’s SARI Approved (SEMA Approved Racking Inspector) can undertake a comprehensive inspection and prepare a detailed report highlighting where repair work is considered necessary.
