Rack Safety Inspections

Rack Safety Inspections ensuring the safety of your personnel

In order to maintain the integrity of your racking and compliance with Australian Standard AS4084-2023, it is imperative that you undertake a rack safety inspection and check for any damage at least once every 12 months.

Bowen Storage provides detailed site inspections, comprehensive reporting, and expert advice regarding safe storage practices in order to comply with your State’s current Worksafe and WHS regulations. 

Our trained safety inspectors will also provide recommendations around warehouse safety accessories and how to improve the overall safety of your facility.


Visual Site Inspection

Our inspectors will carry out thorough Rack Safety Inspections of all racking systems onsite.

All damage, missing fasteners, clips, or safety mechanisms that may alter the integrity of the structure will be detailed and recorded in the Rack Safety Inspection Report.

A visual check of all safety signs and load capacity tags will also be carried out to ensure they comply with the current configuration of the racking.

Compliance Reporting

Using information from the onsite inspection we will prepare a detailed Rack Safety Inspection Report which records the inspection date and any observations made.

This detailed report lists any repair works that need to be carried out to ensure the racking meets Australian Standard AS4084-2023.

Repairs & Ongoing Compliance

Damaged racking components need to be repaired or replaced ASAP to eliminate possible accidents, and keep warehouses running efficiently.

All pallet racking should be inspected every 12 months. Our rack safety team will provide regular, comprehensive inspections and reports to ensure you comply with current standards and WHS requirements.


Pallet racking must be inspected, at a minimum, once every 12 months or when changes are made to your racking under the Australian Standard. Inspections and Asset maintenance are part of a safety system that every workplace is legally obliged to have.

Step 1 – Confirm the location of warehouse/s and the amount of space racking takes up within the facility.
Step 2 – Our inspectors will book a convenient date for your inspection.
Step 3 – The inspector will audit your racks, signage and other requirements for rack safety compliance.
Step 4 – The inspector can provide an immediate report that identifies the required repairs. A quotation will follow for the works to be completed.
Step 5 – Upon acceptance of the quotation, works will be completed for certification.

No. An inspection confirms the state of your racking and what is damaged or needs to be monitored. The inspection is the first step to getting your workplace certified. If no damages are found, you will receive your certification notice. Otherwise, you must complete the required repairs to gain certification.

You can book anytime by or complete the form on this page or by calling our office. We work with you to ensure your inspection and report are conducted at a time that suits your company’s needs and timetable.
