Hazard Recognition and Control at the Loading Dock

Protecting pedestrians working in and around hazardous environments, like loading docks, is crucial. Introducing light communication and safe maintenance solutions can have an immediate positive, impact at the loading dock.

Enhance dock safety and efficiency with advanced communication systems and controls for all types of dock levelers.

Hazard Recognition and Control allows facilities to help:

  • Incorporate line of sight Rite-Vu™ Light Communication System status with Corner-Vu™ and Leveler-Vu™. In Drive-Thru Applications with a continuous pit, run-off guards are a physical barrier for vertical storing levelers, while Leveler-Vu provides line-of-sight light communication for vehicle restraint engagement and dock leveler edges. 
  • Prevent the collapse of dock levelers undergoing maintenance with the Universal Safe-T-Strut™.
  • Reduce crushing hazards due to out of sequence leveler operation while employees are in the vertical leveler pit with Safe-T-Pit® sensors.
  • Protect material handling equipment against the 4ft. vacant dock drop-off with Safe-T-Lip® leveler lip barrier. 
  • Integrate additional and future equipment along with interlocked sequence of operations to ensure safety protocols and processes are followed by dock workers. 
  • Integrate multiple pieces of loading dock equipment into programmable safe sequence of operations with Dok-Commander® Combined Controls.
  • Monitor equipment, capture events, synchronize vital information and facilitate data-driven behaviors and process change with smart, connected products.
