Why Do I Need a Pallet Racking Inspection?


What happens during the inspection?

When you book in for a pallet racking inspection, you can expect a thorough assessment of your warehouse or storage area. The assessment will cover:

  • Onsite inspection of all Pallet Racking Systems installed
  • Impact damage on any materials handling equipment
  • Horizontal beam deflection – permanent deformation
  • Load sign details and whether they’re being complied with
  • Cracked or bending beam connector
  • Twisted or leaning plumb racking
  • Missing, dislodged or missing components
  • Damage caused by the products being stories, such as corrosion


At the conclusion, you will be handed a detailed Inspection Report that includes photos and Risk Identification Stickers. This report will have advice and recommendations on potential and existing safety hazards in the warehouse.


How often do I need one?

A pallet racking inspection must be performed once every 12 months. At the completion of each inspection, you will be given an Annual Pallet Racking Inspection plaque to ascertain that your warehouse is up to standards and it will state the date of the next inspection.
