Inspection Process

01 Step One

The first step in our rack safety inspection process is for one of our rack safety experts to come to your location and perform a full walkthrough of your rack system. During this walkthrough, we’ll assess every part of your rack system for safety concerns. We record every instance of concern.

02 Step Two

A couple weeks following your assessment, we’ll provide you with a scope drawing. This scope drawing identifies each location of a safety concern and what type of concern it is. We’ll go through this drawing with you to explain all the safety concerns found and our recommendations to correct them.

03 Step Three

We can then provide you with a proposal for these remediation services.
