Under OSHA, employers have a responsibility to provide a safe workplace to their employees. They are responsible for their health and safety while in the workplace. Our pallet rack safety and inspection training can significantly lower the number of incidents in your warehouse by educating your workers on the proper course of action when rack safety issues arise. Training your workforce on rack safety is one of the best investments your company can make to minimize unnecessary risk.

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, they are often neglected, damage accumulates, and the structural integrity of the systems may become compromised.

When employees 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 system, products or facilities
  • Increased risk of injuries or worse, fatalities
  • Lost of productivity and efficiency
  • Increased insurance costs
  • Costly legal liabilities
  • Decreased employee retention and well-being



On-site, at your warehouse

Our engineer(s) will travel to your facility and train your employees on warehouse rack safety and methods for conducting regular rack inspections. This pallet rack safety course is split into two parts: instructor-led classroom session and a practical workshop in your warehouse.


Online Webinar Training

As an alternative to our on-site training, we've created an online version of our rack safety course. You choose the time and our instructors will teach your workers about rack safety awareness and conducting inspections by videoconference on the Zoom platform.
