Loading docks present a number of significant risks which require careful management. Differing specifications for docks and vehicles, visiting drivers and the lack of direct communication between drivers and warehouse staff all contribute to potential problems.
A publication has been produced by Logistics UK Logistics Safety Working Group and the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) Retail and Distribution Group. It aims to identify the risks associated with vehicle/dock interface for the logistics sector and explore possible control measures. This guide focuses on warehouse-type locations and should be read by anyone responsible for managing these sites. It aims to highlight risk areas and to consider possible solutions adopted by others in the sector.
