SEMA APPROVED PALLET RACKING INSPECTIONS
Regular inspections of your pallet racking by a SEMA Approved Racking Inspector (SARI) ensures safety requirements are complied with.
Transformer Systems have been inspecting & advising on pallet racking, mezzanine floor & shelving installations since we started in 2004. With our pallet racking safety inspections, you can rest easy knowing your pallet racking will be thoroughly checked for damage and the absence of components. These checks and precautionary actions are a necessary step for warehouse safety and personnel protection.
DO I NEED AN INSPECTION?
Rack inspections are required under PUWER Regulations 1998 (because pallet racking ‘falls under the category of work equipment, which must be maintained and inspected on a regular basis’.) and recommended in the HSE’s HGS76: Warehousing & Storage - A guide to health and safety document.
Racking Inspections are advised where:
- Racking is already damaged
- Racking is likely to become damaged
- Taking measures to prevent accidents
- Calculating the load capacity of your storage system
HOW MUCH WEIGHT CAN MY PALLET RACKING CARRY?
If the original design specification has been lost it can be possible to determine the weight capacity of some types of racking if markings or measurements can be taken & referred back to the manufacturer for confirmation.
HOW MUCH DO PALLET RACKING INSPECTIONS COST?
This is dependent on a number of factors including quantity of racking, layout, type of racking system, size of warehouse & ease of access to the racking. An existing plan of your racking will help us to quote for the inspection as well as correlate the report back to your existing racking locations.

SEMA APPROVED INSPECTIONS
As well as being a competent, regular and experienced storage equipment inspector, individuals who wish to undergo the course for this qualification need certain traits. Candidatess should be qualified to HND/degree level and require “sound observational skills”, “a robust understanding” and “a keen eye for detail” as stated by Mike Pace (SEMA Associate Member) in 2015.
This means you can trust our inspector to uphold a set standard, with a detailed report which helps the workplace assure safety.
