Are your staff properly trained to conduct your internal racking inspections?
Our bespoke Pallet Rack Inspection Training Courses enable you to comply with Health & Safety legislation by training your staff to conduct internal warehouse racking inspections. These are one day courses run at your premises.
The requirements for inspections are set out in HSG 76 (the HSE Guide to Warehousing & Storage) which require an employer to conduct regular internal inspections. Our onsite course trains your staff to meet this requirement by learning to identify damage according to the SEMA damage coded and then determine what action to take.
The course starts with an overview of the racking systems and its correct operation. It then deals with the identification of damage, how to assess and prioritise the damage, and what actions to take to make the areas safe in accordance with the SEMA guidelines. The course also has several modules dealing with good warehousing practice aimed at preventing damage occurring in the first place by identifying the root causes, and then looking at the various ways in which the warehouse can be made safer.

Who should attend a rack awareness course?
Fork truck drivers
They are the ones that bend the racking and have most at risk if it fails!
Middle managers & Health & Safety advisors
They are responsible for ensuring its correct use and maintenance or picking up the pieces!
Senior managers & directors
They sign off the cheques and would be liable in the event of an accident so need to know why it is vitally important to fully support and fund the process.
