As employer or warehouse operator, you are obliged to inspect racking and storage facilities. This obligation is defined in DGUV rule 108-007 and DIN EN 15635. As certified expert rack inspectors (qualified rack inspectors), we as SNI-Nord Regaltechnik inspect your rack systems nationwide, independently of their manufacturer and in accordance to the regulations for defects and faults. Our rack inspections and rack checks are of course carried out in accordance with DIN EN 15635 and DGUV rule 108-007 (formerly BGR 234).
Each warehouse operator is independently responsible for the faultless condition of their work equipment in accordance with § 10 of the BetrSichV as well as for the safety of the employees in accordance with § 4 of the Occupational Health and Safety Act. Where racking systems and storage equipment are used for storage and which are thus regarded as technical work equipment, the annual safety test and inspection of the assembled racking systems is mandatory.
This obligation is regulated by the Industrial Safety Regulation (§ 10 BetrSichV). DIN EN 15635 also regulates the inspection of racking systems, specifies the scope and procedure and defines the threshold values for risk assessment.
The inspection obligation applies to:
Legally, a rack inspection has to be carried out once a year respectively every 12 months. Only the regular control and preparation of a risk assessment (risk analysis) ensures your legal compliance as a warehouse operator and can guarantee the safety of your employees and the protection of your goods.
Your benefits through the rack inspection:
Rack testing or inspection may only be carried out by a certified rack tester or rack inspector or by a competent and trained expert.
For the legally compliant and qualified execution of a rack inspection according to DIN EN 15635 and DGUV rule 108-007, professional competence and many years of experience in rack technology alone do not suffice. A qualified person must also complete a training as a rack inspector (a seminar lasting several days) and pass an exam to be certified to inspect racks independently of manufacturers as an official rack inspector.
As rack inspectors, our trained employees have many years of experience in rack inspections and will assess the status and condition of your rack systems during the annual rack inspection. Our employees will record any defects found during an inspection in a protocol in accordance with the damage classes. As part of the racking inspection, they will also make recommendations for the elimination of defects and racking repairs as well as for the future prevention of damage – thus ensuring that you fulfil your duty and that your racking and storage equipment is safe.
In addition to rack inspection, we can of course also carry out any necessary rack repairs at your premises.
