At Brysdales health and safety is at the heart of everything we do. We are one of the few storage distributors that has undergone the stringent accreditation process to achieve our SEMA (Storage Equipment Manufacturer's Association) status.
Our installation teams are fully trained and registered as members of the Storage Equipment Installers Registration Scheme (SEIRS) and we have a fully certified SEMA approved rack inspector to carry out in-depth analysis and inspection of your equipment.
We also provide an extensive range of health and safety equipment and accessories, from posts and barriers to PPE and security cupboards.
In a busy warehouse with shelves filled to capacity, as well as storing every item correctly, our client also needed easy and safe access to these heavy goods.
We introduced the customer to pallet pull-out units where instead of removing items from their original pallets, goods are brought out of the rack into the aisle, making them accessible from three sides for hand picking.
Our client was a typical biological research laboratory, which required a safe solution to storing a large amount of chemicals including acid and flammable solvent.
We installed COSHH-approved steel hazardous substance storage cupboards in the laboratory, with 'no snag' handles and security locks and adjustable spill retaining shelves.
Following a record year a warehousing company wanted to ensure that its pallet racking was still in full working order. Management wanted to ensure equipment was fully compliant with all current health and safety regulations and prevent accidents and personal injury to valued staff members.
Under current legislation pallet racking is classed as 'work equipment' and is subject to inspection. The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) state that employers must inspect racking and storage systems on a regular basis to ensure they are safe. All inspections must be carried out by a technically qualified rack inspector.
Brysdales works with a fully qualified SEMA Rack Inspector, who carried out a full on site rack inspection to test the integrity, strength and capacity of the company's equipment. Damage was catagorised in accordance with SEMA codes of practice and the inspector completed the rack inspection before discussing his findings with the site manager. The company was able to quickly and efficiently address areas of weakness.
