On the Docks: Uniform Safety Tips for Loading Dock Workers
Loading dock workers have a difficult and sometimes dangerous job, whether they are loading and unloading trucks, filling containers, or moving materials around the building. Many accidents on the shipping dock can be avoided by wearing the correct workwear. Keep your employees protected from injury, from weather, and visible during all hours with enhanced visibility uniforms.
Uniforms Can Increase Visibility to Decrease Accidents
How can you protect what you can’t see? For an employee working on the shipping dock, visibility is essential to keeping him or her safe. They’re often moving large pallets of freight throughout your facility, around corners, even from building to building, which is dangerous. These jobs often require the use of heavy machinery and intense physical labor which can also lead to accidents if dock workers can’t see each other and others can’t see them. Reflective or enhanced visibility workwear is usually a requirement for dock workers according to nearly all loading dock safety regulations.
Kleen Kraft Services offers a variety of enhanced visibility uniform garments including work shirts, pants, coveralls and more. These safety garments are part of a wide spectrum of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for workers in many industries including those on the shipping docks. With added visibility comes added protection for your employees.
