Docking and transhipment operations pose a high risk to people and equipment, as previously identified by safety agencies. Our transhipment dock safety range meets the requirements of the industrial and logistics sectors, ensuring the safety of these delicate operations.
Transhipment dock safety: what are the risks?
During the unloading and loading phases, the main risks are related to interactions between vehicles and staff on the ground or inside warehouses. They can also be caused by inadequate safeguarding of dock machinery. Several types of incident may occur:
- Risk of crushing or collision
- Risk of falls involving people or handling equipment when trucks are not blocked in place
- Tipping up of uncoupled trailers during loading operations
