SESS In-house Training Course: Safe Management of Pallet Racking

Course Content: This is a one day rack inspection course that has been approved by IOSH. The aim of this course is to provide delegates with an understanding of what factors can affect the safety of racking and how it can be safely managed using best practice and health and safety legislation.

On completion of this course delegates will be able to:
