Training

Training is a vital part of every operating procedure. Without it, we have less awareness and a far greater risk of incident, injury and above all else, not complying with the law. Employee competence can decline if periodic refresher training is not introduced. We can support you to ensure continued operator competence.

Forklift training

Mechanical handling accounts for a large proportion of accidents in warehouses.

We offer in depth 2 – 5 day complete basic training courses and 1 day refresher retest courses, specialising in a wide range of mechanical handling equipment, such as:

Counterbalance, reach truck, pivot steer (Bendi, Flexi etc), VNA turret truck – man up and man-down, low level order picker (LLOP), high level order picker (HLOP), powered pallet truck (PPT) / pedestrian / ride-on, pedestrian stacker, telescopic truck, sideloader, 4 way reach trucks and combilift.

Rack awareness training

A basic course helping to educate warehouse operatives of how to carry out frequent in house inspections, identifying documenting and monitoring damage.

Courses available from October 2018

Load Data / Structural Calculations

Whether you require missing load notice signage information or structural calculations for a bespoke structure, providing your equipment is satisfactory and compliant with industry standards we can provide the necessary loading information you require.

This service is only offered as an additional service following an initial inspection of the structure due to the various issues that can arise, such as poor installation, modifications and corrosion etc. to name a few.

Remedial works or replacement may be required prior to this service if following our inspection, the equipment is not up to standard.

Racking Accessories

Rack protection is a fundamental part of storage equipment that can reduce damage and save cost.

Where racking is likely to be struck by lift trucks and other vehicles, it should be protected.

By installing low level renewable column guards to exposed areas we minimise the risk of damage to racking uprights and frame braces from accidental impact. End frames, corner uprights and drive through (bridge) bays in a run of racking are especially at risk and should be suitably provided with a protective device in a high visibility colour.

Site surveys

As racking inspectors, we have a meticulous eye for detail and many years of experience surveying industrial warehouse structures with backgrounds within the pallet racking industry. We are able to provide a surveying service tailored to suit your budget and requirements.

All surveys include one site visit and a high quality dimensioned drawing complete with internal plan and elevation details that are emailed electronically in AutoCAD or PDF format complete with your own or client details.

Strict client confidentiality assurance for all enquiries or future projects.
