Victorian Pallet Racking Inspections

If you have operational pallet racking in your warehouse, it is important to consider that you will require an annual safety audit by a competent and experienced inspector. The new Australian Standards for steel storage racking (AS4084) states that your racking system must be inspected for damage and made compliant every 12 months.

From impact damage, missing componentry, corrosion to overloading, it is essential to engage professional racking inspectors to guide you towards compliance.

Do your safe work load signs match your rack configuration? Are they easily read and not blocked by materials or other obstacles? Do your forklift drivers understand the information on the signs? As part of the new Australian Standard there is a greater focus and detail required with your safe work load signs.

Another focus for clients must be the safety and compliance of pallets. There are specific requirements around timber, plastic and steel pallets that need to be adhered to. PRQ Australia provides a comprehensive review during our Racking Safety inspections.

About our service offer across Melbourne and Regional Victoria

Are you aware that with the change of the Australian Standard (AS4084-2023) there is a change in the obligation to have active steel storage racking inspected annually?

PRQ Australia have been operating across Melbourne and Regional Victoria for a number of years offering a comprehensive inspection, repairs and compliance service to clients with operational pallet racking.

Ensuring that your pallet racking is inspected annually is also essential for ensuring the safety of your employees and in order to adhere to the Australian safety standards. Our team of professional, experienced and qualified Inspectors and pallet racking specialists, will look for potential safety hazards with your pallet racking, provide a comprehensive report and repair quote if required. Once your pallet racking is compliant, you will be provided with a Compliance Letter which is valid until your next inspection.

PRQ Australia also provides our clients across Victoria with training on the Australian Standard and basic internal inspections. We outline key sections of the current Standard as well as tips and tricks to avoid non-compliance. Additionally PRQ Australia can provide your business with an “internal” checklist that your Health and Safety staff can use to complete regular racking checks at intervals that suit your business.
