Rack Safety Training

Pallet Racking Safety Awareness & Inspection Course

Annual rack safety inspections by a SEMA approved rack inspector (SARI) are recommended. It is just as important that your employees know how to conduct regular internal inspections. This will help to keep the racking equipment in a safe working condition and alert you to any necessary repairs.

How can we help?

Our practical, hands-on training programme will provide your staff with the basic knowledge of safe storage techniques to help ensure a safe working environment throughout the year.

This half-day course provides advice and guidance to allow staff to carry out basic rack inspections in line with SEMA guidelines.
