The main arrival and departure area in any facility for truck, trailer, or van pick-ups and deliveries is the loading dock. It could be your facilities most overlooked hazard area.

Typically, trucks, forklifts and workers are moving in tandem and are instrumental to the loading and unloading of materials and equipment, while also receiving and shipping out pallets or packages to your customers in this most hazardous area that is ignored.

Each loading dock presents numerous safety issues which can be mitigated.  Some basic examples can be that open loading docks are exposed to inclement weather and debris blowing onto the loading dock floor which creates a slipping hazard.  Also, open air loading docks have a drop-off where no visual protection is set as a warning, basically leaving a blind safety hazard in the dock area where one can easily fall with a major injury result.  However, all loading docks carry inherent safety risks which make them dangerous.

We at North American Safety Products are here to provide you loading dock safety to enhance your corporate safety program.
