Loading Dock Safety Barriers
Ensure safety at the loading dock
Vacant loading dock doors are a danger zone inside any facility. Accidents at these 4' (1200 mm) drop-offs can result in serious injury and are sometimes fatal.
Rite-Hite Barrier Systems offer several solutions to protect an open loading dock. These solutions provide full access for loading and unloading a trailer and still allow fresh air into the building when no trucks are present. There are manual and automatic options available and the ability to interlock the operation with a Rite-Hite Vehicle Restraint.
Installing loading dock safety barriers is a cost effective, yet important investment that can help prevent accidents, injuries and damage to products or equipment. Before selecting barriers to invest in, it is important to consider all of the application requirements. Once these site specific variables are determined and understood, a user can select the best loading dock safety barrier to meet their safety and protection needs.
All of the loading dock solutions address OSHA regulation 1910.23 regarding "protection for wall openings and holes."
