Rack Inspection Training
Your steel storage racks are high-performance, load-bearing structures. They are relied upon to safely support the significant weight of valuable product stored above warehouse personnel. To ensure that storage racks are performing at their designed level of safety, routine inspections of these structures must be conducted. In fact, provincial occupational health and safety regulators require that all or part of a workplace be regularly inspected, typically on a monthly basis. To meet these obligations, ensure that your internal personnel are competent in the necessary skills and knowledge to properly inspect your very own storage rack systems.
