Workdays always keep workers busy and tired, and the last thing any company or employee wants is to deal with a workplace injury. Everyone is responsible for keeping themselves and others safe in the workplace, especially in high-risk areas such as loading docks. Loading docks are critical entry/exit points for goods transportation, so they must be safe and efficient. They are one of the busy areas in the world where heavy machinery, noise, high traffic and surfaces that can be exposed to various elements like weather, can lead to an unsafe work environment if the appropriate protective measures are not taken. Whether you are an employer or an employee, make sure you have taken some proper protective measures for all workers on a loading dock.

Safety tips for loading docks

Work, loading/unloading, and trailer areas should be properly lighted and free of obstructions.
Do not run while in the loading dock area.
Work with proper lifting techniques
Pay attention to and keep a safe distance from the loading dock edges.
Do not jump onto or off the loading dock.
Remove extra or loose straps from crate items that may be tripping hazards
Beware of chemical exposure and prevent chemicals from leaking
Ensure that loading docks are properly maintained
Beware of the impacts of poor weather conditions on surfaces
Make sure all loading dock workers are wearing safe, supportive safety footwear or safety boots.

 

Proper protective safety shoes
Slips, trips and falls are the most common types of injuries on a loading dock, but they can be avoided by taking the right precautions including wearing the right safety shoes for women. We recommend good traction soles that keep workers stable on a variety of surfaces and conditions to provide support especially when workers are pushing and lifting heavy materials.

Everyone is supposed to keep safe in the workplace. As an employer, make sure safety measures are taken in any activity or area and communicate these measures to employees as part of a healthy & safety program. As a worker, your duty is to ensure both yourself and your co-workers are following safety procedures. What’s more, motivate everyone to report health and safety hazards or concerns immediately to reduce the risk of injury.
