Warehouse and Loading Dock Safety
- Send to friend
Warehouses are large, open rooms or structures commonly used to receive, organize, store, and ship goods to customers or other facilities. Most warehouses have a loading dock where trucks and railcars can be loaded for shipment of finished goods. High noise levels, limited visibility, use of heavy equipment, and 24-hour operations can make warehouses and loading docks extremely dangerous work areas. To safely work in this environment, employees should be properly trained to recognize and avoid common hazards.
