PML can supply, install and load test many types of industrial racking, once your racking has been installed and commissioned it needs to be maintained.

One way of doing this is through proper use: racking should be highly visible, protected physically, never climbed on and never overloaded. However, beyond that, HSE recommend having racking inspected by a competent person at least once a year.

This advice is echoed by law in the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) 1998, in which section six highlights the importance of regular and thorough inspections for work equipment. All racking systems, including mezzanine floors, qualify as work equipment, so they are subject to this legislation. PML can carry out these periodic examinations for you and carry out any necessary modification and repairs.
