Loading Dock Activity


Don't let your loading dock be another statistic

Avoid common loading docks hazards such as:

  • Struck-by injuries
  • Falls from dock heights
  • Unchocked trailer wheels
  • Slips, trips, and falls
  • Protruding materials
  • Falling objects 
  • Wet, oily, or broken floor surfaces
  • Heat stress or cold stress
  • Caught between equipment and materials

Keeping your loading dock safe and efficient is part of doing business

And you deserve a simple and effective way to accomplish this.


Consider these OSHA facts:

  • 25% of all industrial accidents occur on the loading dock, and for each accident that occurs, there are about 600 near-misses. Don’t let your loading dock become another statistic.

  • For each accident, there are hundreds of near misses. Many accidents are preventable with proper safety equipment in place.

  • You work relentlessly to maximize your loading dock’s efficiency by investing in new forklifts and making the most out of aging equipment.

  • The absence of proper safety equipment often leads to injuries, damaged inventory, and even more downtime, all in the name of saving a dollar.

Loading Dock

  • Your loading dock’s safety directly impacts the bottom line of your business, but putting the necessary measures in place may be overwhelming.

  • You may not know where to start training your staff, inspecting worn-out equipment, or securing trailers.

  • Trying to meet the ever-growing productivity targets and minimize downtime, loading dock managers get caught cutting corners with safety and overlook potentially hazardous situations. 

  • You can uncover potential loading dock risks and mitigate them with the right safety measures and proper equipment recommendations.
