Last week we held a one day Racking Inspection Training course at the Hayden’s Bakery premises in Wiltshire. A total of 5 delegates joined the course which included forklift drivers, a warehouse manager and Health & Safety Manager. We always recommend holding this type of course at your premises as this ensures that our instructors make the course content relevant to your warehouse and they can carry out a ‘mini’ racking inspection of the racking at your site which gives delegates practical information on how to complete their own future inspections.
Here is what Mr Martin Vellenoweth (the Health & Safety Manager at Hayden’s Bakery) had to say:
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 thorough 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.
The Racking Inspection Training course provides essential knowledge for warehouse personnel responsible for the safety of the Pallet Racking systems. We provide information and instructions on how to carry out a pallet racking inspection – How to measure and categorise any damage to the pallet racking – we discuss the need for rack safety inspections and the related legislation and guidance provide by the Health & Safety Executive & how to conduct a risk assessment of the storage equipment in your workplace in order to decide the frequency and type of racking inspections suitable.
