Employees walking and inspecting warehouse racking


Pallet racks are an essential part of warehouses, and so is rack inspection training. In cold storage environments or industries with a high-velocity of forklift traffic like the food and beverage industry, damage is bound to be found on racks. Unfortunately, it is often neglected, continues to accumulate, and the structural integrity of the systems may become compromised.

When workers understand the potential hazards and know the proper course of action when an event occurs, safety is drastically improved.

There are many consequences to employees lacking rack safety knowledge:

  • Increased damage to racking systems, products or facilities
  • Increased risk of injuries, or worse, fatalities
  • Loss of productivity and efficiency
  • Increased insurance costs
  • Costly legal liabilities
  • Decreased employee retention and well-being


This rack safety training is aimed at any employee involved in one way or another in warehouse operations. Everyone who completes the training session will receive a certificate. Depending on the level of awareness and knowledge about rack damage and inspection procedures, we can adapt the content of the presentation to fit the needs of your workforce. 

  • Warehouse workers
  • Warehouse managers
  • Maintenance personnel
  • Rack installers
  • Forklift drivers
