Mobile office shelving and Industrial Mobile shelving systems can deliver enormous space saving solutions for virtually any environment. However, to ensure these solutions continue to operate smoothly and effectively, they must be regularly inspected and maintained.
In fact, the Health and Safety Executive’s PUWER regulations, recommend your mobile shelving system is inspected by an expert every 12 months to ensure it’s working correctly, and most importantly, used safely.
Why Does Mobile Shelving Fall Under the PUWER Regulations?
PUWER stands for the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations and is designed to keep people safe at work when using any kind of machinery or equipment.
As the name suggest, the mobile nature of the shelving system can present safety issues and therefore, it is vital that key features such as the handwheel, tracks and roller systems are regularly inspected and maintained to ensure the system continues to operate efficiently and as intended.
General wear and tear on the system can include the following issues:
- Chains may stretch
- Shelving may get mis-aligned on the tracks
- Tracks may get blocked with build up of dirt and dust
- Wheels may get damaged
- Floor may be subject to deflection
- Handwheel may become loose
