Hello All,


I work in a packaging company. Currently we only use wooden pallets but are slowly moving to plastic ones. However, i want to prepare an audit checklist to check for the integrity of the pallets once in a week. Does anyone have a checklist of such sort that can guide me? This will support our wood policy.

A blanket statement of "broken pallets will be removed and replaced until repaired" typically works for most certification schemes. I would just keep a log of how many pallets are removed from production daily/weekly/monthly for broken/unusable conditions as evidence.
