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.
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:
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.
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. This option is convenient and flexible.
An outline of the topics addressed during the on-site training:
Our training is typically aimed at warehouse employees, managers, maintenance personnel and forklift drivers.
No, becoming an inspector would require more hours of training and certification. But you will be knowledgeable enough to assess most rack deficiencies and take proper actions to address them.
Yes, but it is also suited for executives, managers and warehouse workers.
The training is based on the American and Canadian rack design codes as well as the industry’s best practices.
We cover all of Canada and the US including Alaska, Hawaï and Puerto Rico.
