Course Description

Imagine working in a busy, high-stress area that has a sudden drop. Loading docks have bays where shipments arrive or depart. Trucks, vans, or trailers are constantly backing into various bays. Forklifts and workers are loading or unloading shipments. 

What happens if a forklift misjudges the distance to the edge of an open bay? What happens if a trailer pulls away while the forklift is still unloading?

Between workers, forklifts, trailers, and drivers, there is a lot of room for error. For a loading dock to operate smoothly every person from the driver to the worker must be vigilant in complying with safety standards.

This course will cover the following loading dock safety practices:

  • Common hazards found on a loading dock
  • OSHA standards and requirements
  • Loading dock equipment and best practices
  • and Loading dock separation accidents

Due to the diverse traffic through loading docks, there are many hazards or risks for both pedestrians and forklift drivers.
