Employers who benefit from the convenience of loading docks must take measures to ensure the safety of their employees. Docks that are high off the ground and have 18-wheel trucks backing in continually make for a high-risk environment. Injuries and death can occur from falling off the dock or truck bed, accidents involving forklifts, or a worker trapped between a truck and the dock. These injuries can occur to the employees of the company responsible for the loading dock as well as delivery persons and truck drivers making deliveries.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)has specific requirements regarding loading docks. Owners must have trailer restraints to prevent the truck from prematurely moving away from the dock. Employers also have aresponsibility to train employees properly and within OSHA standards.
Falling short of those responsibilities could lead to injury and death.
