Minimize the risks at your loading bay

Loading bays are normally the busiest areas at logistics companies, warehouses and production facilities – and the most dangerous.

Eliminate the risk and dangers before accidents happen
Large vehicles, heavy equipment and people are constantly on the move, often at high speed. Raised, uneven work surfaces, as well as high noise levels, heavy loads, blind spots and language issues can add to an already high-risk environment. It is hardly surprising then that every year, thousands of workers suffer serious or fatal injuries when working around vehicles that collect or deliver goods (1).

In most cases, it is only after a serious accident has occurred that measures are taken to find solutions to make the loading bay a safer place to work. A proactive approach is urgently needed to not only save lives, but drastically reduce the frequency and severity of accidents, and the costly consequences.
