  • The assessors believe the information contained within this risk assessment report to be correct at the time of printing. The assessors do not accept responsibility for any consequences arising from the use of the information herein.

Confidentiality Statement

  • In order to maintain the integrity and credibility of the risk assessment processes and to protect the parties involved, it is understood that the assessors will not divulge to unauthorised persons any information obtained during this risk assessment unless legally obligated to do so.


  • Any damage or unsafe occurrence must be reported,to the Health, safety & Environmental officer, thus ensuring that any necessary actions can be taken to maintain a safe working environment.
    The racking inspection team will undertake routine inspections, and report their findings to the Health, safety and Environmental officer who will maintain the safety reports.


  • The following colour coding; Green, Orange, and Red are classifications of risk as defined by FEM ‘Guidelines for the Safe Use of Static Racking’

    Green Risk: Damage requiring surveillance.
    Orange Risk: Hazardous damage requiring action as soon as possible.
    Red Risk: Very serious damage requiring immediate action.


    Damage requiring surveillance.
    For damage to frames in which the limits are not exceeded. This would indicate racks where some damage was present but was considered non-critical.
    Such damaged components should be recorded as suitable for further service until the next management inspection, but clearly identified for further re-examination at future inspections.

    Hazardous damage requiring action as soon as possible.
    For damage to frames in which the limits are exceeded by up to a factor of two. This would identify an area where the damage was sufficiently severe to warrant remedial work but not so severe as to warrant the immediate off-loading of the rack. Once the rack is unloaded however, it should not be re-loaded until repairs have been carried out. In the event that the storage position remains full for several days after the initial identification of the problem, the rack should be off-loaded for repair without further delay.
    The USER company must have a method of isolating such racks to ensure that they do not come back into use until the necessary repairs have been carried out and the equipment certified as safe. For example, use could be made of dated adhesive labels, which indicate racks that are not to be re-loaded until rectified. In practice any racking with ORANGE RISK category damage should be re-designated RED RISK damage if remedial work has not been carried out within four weeks of the original designation.

    Very serious damage requiring immediate action.
    For damage to frames in which the limits exceed a factor greater than two.
    These are situations where a critical level of damage is identified which warrants an area of racking being immediately off-loaded and isolated from future use until repair work is carried out. Such repair work would involve replacement of the damaged item.
    USER companies must have a method of isolating areas to ensure that they do not come back into use prior to the repair work being carried out. For example, a particular bay could be off-loaded in the presence of the inspector and roped off to prevent further use.


  • Monthly Inspections

    This should be carried out in a similar manner to the weekly inspection, but include the physical emptying of random bays in order to carry out a more detailed inspection.
    _ It should also be used to check that items already identified as Red Risk have been isolated with the necessary actions taken to rectify the risk. Similarly Orange Risk items should be checked to ensure repairs are underway.
    _ Ensure that all safe working load signs, maintenance and other safety signs are in place.

    Twelve Monthly Inspections

    Must be completed at least once every Twelve months. A major inspection by a technically competent person fully experienced in the identification and categorisation of rack damage. Such a person may be an external specialist capable of giving an independent assessment of the racking. This review should also examine the performance of the reporting procedures and that actual repairs are being carried out.
    The inspection should be comprehensive and include checking for out-of-plumb and ensure that the rack installation has not been altered. A copy of the load application and configuration drawings shall be retained for this purpose.
