SEIRS Foundation Course - Part 1

This one-day course is Part 1 of the SEIRS Diploma process and pays particular attention to Health & Safety issues both generic and industry specific that are likely to affect installers on sites while installing pallet racking storage equipment. It will also involve the practical use of safety harnesses.

At the end of the training successful delegates should have the basic skills needed when working within the storage industry.

The course provides information and knowledge of the safety procedures and legislation involved in the construction of pallet racking storage equipment to allow them to work safely on sites under guidance and supervision.

On successful completion of the course delegates are awarded a SEIRS Trainee card which is valid up to 6 months. To maintain the qualification and renew their SEIRS ID Card installers will need to successfully pass the SEIRS Diploma.
