Loading docks have a high potential for accidents if proper safety equipment and protocols aren't in place. This safety equipment includes Vehicle Restraints to securely hold a truck to the dock during loading, light communication between the truck driver and dock personnel, and safety barriers on an open dock.
When a door is open at a loading dock without a truck present, some type of a barrier should be in place to prevent a forklift from possibly falling off the edge.
