Rack Safety

Rack Safety Inspection Audit

We offer a thorough and detailed pallet rack safety inspection. We take pride in the fact our audit process is very thorough, endeavouring to visually check all components including those at rear and at height. We also check for overloading, validate the existing load sign detail and load application drawings correctly match with the rack configuration & and check for pedestrian safety issues relating to the design.

The Perrin Industries rack certification assessment report is designed to be easily understood and validated. It includes

  • Hazard & Risk Report in table format detailing observed non-compliancy issues and compliance requirements (what needs to be done to correct the hazards).
  • Plan drawings which enable the client to easily check the observations against the physical condition of the rack.
  • A detailed specification and quotation to carry out make good works to meet the compliance requirements.

Note: Perrin Industries employs the risk assessment method specified in the Australian Standard (AS 4084-2012 Steel Storage Racking).
