SEMA Approved for Cantilever Rack Inspections

Scottish based Complete Storage & Interiors Ltd. are now one of only a handful of UK companies fully SEMA certified to inspect cantilever racking. The Scottish company offer cantilever racking and adjustable pallet racking inspections across the whole of the United Kingdom. Annual racking inspections are required for businesses to comply with Health & Safety Executive regulations. 

Storage solutions experts CSI have recently acquired the qualification to carry out SEMA approved racking inspections of cantilever racking. The company, who have held the SARI qualification for a number of years, are now able to inspect cantilever racking according to SEMA guidelines, a service they offer to companies across the UK. Annual racking inspections are central to complying with HSE guidelines: Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 and the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER).

“Regular rack inspections help to minimise the number and severity of warehouse accidents,” said Robert Kennedy, Managing Director at CSI. He adds, “Our rack inspectors offer a comprehensive, convenient and cost effective way to keep your warehouse safe and compliant with Health & Safety regulations.”

Cantilever racking is a specific type of racking used for the storage of long and heavy items, including timber, metal sheeting and pipes that are not suitable for pallet racking. Due to the unique construction of this storage system, a cantilever racking inspection requires specialist skills and knowledge that only a SEMA Approved Racking Inspector (SARI) with the cantilever racking inspection qualification can provide.

When a cantilever racking inspection is carried out, risks are assigned a colour value based on the urgency with which action is required. Red risks require immediate offloading of those racks, while amber and green risks are less severe. Annual racking inspections enable businesses to discover risks early and thus minimise future repair cost, extend the lifespan of facilities and create a safe workplace for employees.
