Racking needs to be inspected regularly for faults to meet UK legislation.
Does your team have the training to know what to look for?
The PRRS (person responsible for racking safety)
“Should ensure that inspections are made at weekly or other regular intervals based on risk assessment.”
(HSG 76, Section 645. Warehousing and Storage: A Guide to Health and Safety)
Regular inspection of storage equipment can reduce your repair costs long term, by spotting damage when it happens, or shortly after. By catching defects early, you also reduce the risk of accidents and serious injury caused by collapsed racking.
Our range of over 10 courses are suitable for all levels of experience, from 2-hour pallet racking safety awareness training to Level 2 NVQ qualifications in Racking Inspection, Installation and Maintenance.

From initial contact to training delivery, Rack Group and their training manager delivered a first class service. We were looking for a trainer to deliver a quality training package and raise awareness from shop floor operatives to senior team leaders and this was provided at a level that beat our expectations.
The training course suited us down to the ground, and the training manager brought with them a wealth of experience and knowledge which was delivered clearly and greeted with interest. We look forward to welcoming them back for more training in the near future, and would recommend Rack Group to any company needing training in the warehousing and pallet racking industry.
All who received training were enthusiastic about its presentation and quality. We now have a team of trained competent persons, racking inspectors and an enthused work force knowledgeable in the possible consequences of their actions. As a company we consider it money well spent in our quest for a safer working environment.
A knowledgeable instructor delivered content in a professional but friendly manner and made it as easy to understand as possible.
Health and safety management can seem like a very daunting prospect in today’s workplace but Rack Group provided a professional, relevant and focused approach which means that we clearly know our responsibilities. Rack Group training comes with something that no book can ever teach. Experience!
The quality of training delivered by Rack Group has allowed us to set up a manageable and effective system not only to identify racking damage but also to reduce it. By undertaking the inspection training we can now tailor our racking inspections to our company, we know where the damage is occurring and we know how to deal with it.
We approached Rack Group looking for a bespoke training course in fallen pallet recover. After speaking with the training manager, they said that they would be able to develop a bespoke training course purely to suit our exact needs and requirements.
My first impression of Rack Group training was a very professional business, the course was well run and very well presented, I would like to thank Graeme Waller for his advice and training over the two days. Graeme is a very professional man with excellent knowledge on racking. LH is now in a much better and safer position due to the help and dedication from Rack Group.
