The Importance of Racking Safety and Compliance - Annual Inspections
Pallet racking in Australia is covered under the Australian Standard AS 4084:2012 Steel Storage Racking. This standard deals not only with design but also covers racking installation and operation. When buying pallet racking, it is essential that you make sure the rack system is not only designed to the standard, but is installed to the standard and is operated in accordance with the standard. To comply with Australian Standard AS 4084:2012 Steel Storage Racking, all pallet racking is required to be inspected frequently, and at least every 12 months, and appropriate certified safe working load signage (SWL) attached.
During a racking inspection, any damage or identified safety issues with the racking are categorised as per AS4084-2012:
• RED RISK – Very serious damage;
• AMBER RISK – Hazardous damage;
• GREEN – Acceptable damage.
