For factories, warehouses, haulage firms to name but a few, loading and unloading vehicles is a necessary and frequent part of work. However, due to the size, weight and shape of loads, combined with the height of vehicles, it has huge potential for risking the health and safety of employees and customers. It is also a risky process in terms of keeping the goods being loaded and unloaded in the best possible condition. To safeguard your employees and customers, and keep products at their best, you should ensure that training is given as necessary and that your loading dock boards and plates are of the highest quality. At The Workplace Depot we have a great selection of loading dock boards and plates for you to choose from. Our Hinged bridge dock plate is built for dock loading and will enable you and your workforce to load and unload safely and confidently. The plate must be affixed to a hinge rail attached to the loading dock - hinge rails must be purchased separately. The Loading Dock board which we supply has an excellent safety feature, with its anti-slip finish, helping to keep people and products safe. With optional spanlocks, fork truck lifting handles and ground level loading fittings, this is a highly practical, versatile and functional loading dock board. With the other safety aspects associated with working in loading docks in mind, we also supply lights which have been designed specifically for this purpose, such as the Standard dock light which features a pivot and handle, making adjustment of position easy and safe.
