Health and Safety
Any project involving the installation of pallet racking should always begin with a risk assessment and method statement. It is essential to adhere to the Construction Design and Management 2007 Regulations because it is likely that your racking installation will be covered by them.
We shall ensure the floor’s suitability for the construction of pallet racking and its capacity to support the racking’s full weight. In addition, we will ensure that the floor is suitable for securely fixing the racking system to the floor by the manufacturer’s specifications.
Plant and Equipment
Thought will be put into plant or equipment (such as forklift trucks and scissor lift trucks) access and safety. The “Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations of 1998” specify that only a qualified individual should operate this. The appropriate manual handling regulations should be followed at all times.
Uprights, brace components, and base plates make up a frame. It is essential to assemble these frames by the manufacturer’s instructions for their particular size and height. We will specify the duty of each supplied upright to meet your requirements. Depending on how high your racking goes, the upright may be divided into multiple sections; in this case, a joining splice will be provided. Row spacers should be used to connect adjacent frames in double racks to give the structure more stability.
All racking will be completed with load notices when the installation of the racking is finished. Notices should be installed on the racking in prominent locations where all operators can easily see them.
