Loading bay safety

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

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 and blind spots add to an already high-risk environment.

Regrettably, accidents and injuries are common. Falls, struck-by and caught between injuries, as well as accidents caused by premature vehicle departure and vehicle creep can have far-reaching consequences on workers, productivity and related costs.

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.
