Racking Inspection Courses

We cover the whole of the UK and can visit your warehouse to complete this one day course.

We recommend that, if possible, we attend your workplace to hold this course as this allows us to ensure that our course content is relevant to the racking systems within your warehouse & we will include a ‘mini racking inspection’ of your racking in order to provide an important and useful practical element & discuss how to assess & categorise any damage or faults that may be present.

Who Should Attend?

It is vital that the forklift drivers and operators of any other Materials Handling Equipment (MHE) that operate in and around the racking systems within your warehouse attend this course as these types of machinery are the most likely cause of damage to racking.

The forklift drivers & operators of other MHE are often best placed to carry out the internal inspections as they are in regular contact with the racking systems and most likely to be aware of existing damage or faults. Raising their awareness of the importance for rack safety will often reduce current levels of damage.

Warehouse management and/or Health & Safety personnel equally benefit from this course and will often take on the role of the PRRS (Person Responsible for Racking Safety). HSE guidance states that:

“Any damage found should be immediately reported to the PRRS” & “The PRRS should determine the frequency of internal inspections based on risk assessment of the warehouse operating conditions”

Delegates successfully completing this one day course will have the necessary knowledge to complete their own internal inspections and will be awarded a Certificate of attendance which is valid for 3 years.

“The Rack safety Awareness course provided was ideally suited for our needs. The presentation was thorough and concise ensuring all key points covered. Following the classroom exercise, an audit of our newly installed hi-bay racking translated the theory into practice, to provide DSC with a robust means of ensuring ongoing quality inspection and maintenance systems for all our present and future racking requirements and compliance with related legislation”

“I approached Storage Equipment Experts Limited after finding them through Google. We required a company to attend our site and provide rack inspection training, the course was delivered in a friendly, professional manner and met all requirements as specified. We would have no hesitation in recommending Storage Equipment Experts Limited to companies in the future who require training & Rack Inspections”

“We found the Racking Inspection Training course met our requirements perfectly. Overall it was very well received, delivered at the right pace and had just the right content. On completion the guys now have confidence, knowledge and competence to carry out their own internal racking inspections. Judgements can be made following SEMA guidelines/tolerances to ensure the integrity of the racking and the safety of the people without waiting for a whole year for the next SEMA racking inspection”
