Can pallets be double stacked on the racks.?
I work in a warehouse and noticed 2 pallets were double stacked on the top rack. They were pretty close to the ceiling. My question is double stacking pallets in the racks unsafe or a safety violation. They were on the very top about level 5.

It will depend on your State's Code of Regulations. I believe it changes from State to State.
In Title 8 of CA, I could only find info that states if a pallet is on a shelf that is more than 12 feet from the floor, it must be wrapped, fenced, or otherwise secured.
I would say it's unsafe, but probably not a safety violation.

You should not stack them that high... The fire dept. will write you up when they do an inspection.
