Pallet Racking Inspection Training

The aim of Nene’s Racking Inspection Training is to give delegates the knowledge of warehouse racking systems and how to keep them maintained through the procedure of inspections and risk assessments.

Rack inspections are integral to the ongoing safety of your warehouse racking and having trained staff on-site to assess your racking and report damage is of the utmost of importance.

Our training can take place on-site or at Nene’s Midlands-based Head Office, where delegates will learn practical and theory skills to identify racking damage and have the knowledge to know how to handle any potential issue according to health and safety guidelines.

Nene is excited to offer a targeted racking inspection course, carried out by one of our SEMA Approved Rack Inspectors (SARI). This racking inspection course can accommodate both new members of staff and experienced site managers. This training course will not only benefit the delegates through improved health and safety within their workplace but will increase the lifespan of your warehouse racking by ensuring it is kept well-maintained.

Nene’s Racking Safety Inspection Training is divided into a modular approach including an initial presentation, a hands-on practical session using a mock warehouse whereby a SEMA racking inspection training will take place, ending with a final review meeting including questions and answers.

The topics covered to educate your team include; health the safety, the longevity of your racking system, what to expect from an SEMA inspection, SEMA guidelines and racking visual assessment skills.

Practical elements are key to this course where we hope your team can be fully engaged:

Manager, Travis Perkins

Gave the right information that’s needed to help keep the racking in good working order/safe.


I was surprised how much I learnt in a short space of time


I would like to take this opportunity to thank Matt and the class on the day for their support and understand my help within the course. I also like to say that Nene welcome pack for the course has been put to good use. I also find that Matt was very understanding and helpful within the course and up for a laugh at times to make the training easy to follow. Thanks again.

Tony Wilson, Sait Abrasives

Mike and I really enjoyed the course. and found the information and materials extremely useful. There was a variety of activities which kept everyone engaged and it was great to have the practical aspect to put everything into practice. We would definitely recommend the course and the trainer was brilliant.
