Loading Docks: Inherently Dangerous Settings
The fast pace of modern commerce contributes to potential dangers facing loading dock personnel. Cargo loading and unloading has always carried risks. Yet today, the widespread use of skid loaders, forklifts, and other mechanized freight transporting equipment in high volume warehouse environments creates particular hazards.
Employees during previous generations frequently sustained back injuries and muscle strains working on loading docks. They sometimes suffered serious harm from slips and falls. Today, additional (and potentially deadly) risks occur due to the movement of heavy automated freight transporting equipment in these fast-paced areas.
