Pallet Racking or Cantilever Safety Awareness Courses

The days of simply carrying out a formal racking inspection once or twice or year just to meet your HSE obligations are
now seen as a reactive approach to warehouse management.

The ability of your employees to identify and report potential damage to racking, shelving and mezzanines could not only
save your company thousands in repairs but also protect the health and safety of your employees.

CMD Inspection Services has developed a practical, hands on training programme to provide your
warehouse operators with the basic knowledge of safe storage techniques and ensure a safe
working environment throughout the year.

The Key Benefits
From an operator’s perspective, your employees will be more aware of the potential hazards in their daily working
and gain confidence from being more in control of their safety.

The increased awareness of employees will result in a safer working environment, minimising your exposure to
risk and potential incidents. By identifying racking damage at the earliest possible stage, you will also
minimise the potential cost of rack repairs and damage to goods being stored.

On successfully completing this course, the candidates will be issued with a Certificate of Competency.
