Rack Safety Training

Pallet Racking Safety Awareness & Inspection Course

Annual rack safety inspections by a qualified inspector 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.
