The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) impose a duty on employers to ensure the safety of their employees and the equipment they use. This includes pallet racking systems.

The Storage Equipment Manufacturers' Association (SEMA) provides industry guidelines and codes of practice for the design, installation, and use of storage equipment, including pallet racking.
While SEMA certification is not a legal requirement, it is widely recognised as a mark of quality and compliance with safety standards.
Insurance companies may also require businesses to adhere to certain standards for pallet racking safety to maintain insurance coverage.

To ensure the safety and reliability of your pallet racking system, it is recommended to engage qualified professionals for its design, installation, and regular inspections. They can help ensure that the racking system meets relevant standards and guidelines, providing peace of mind regarding its structural integrity and the safety of workers and goods stored on it.
