Who Is Responsible for Worker Injuries at Loading Docks?

TASA ID: 625

Whenever people and trucks are in close proximity, the area becomes very hazardous. In most cases, but not all, those that are doing the loading or unloading, as well as pedestrians, can be the losers. Generally, loading and/or unloading involves a great deal of people, goods and machinery, often on a raised platform or loading dock.   There are a number of standards and regulations designed to limit the number of hazards workers are exposed to on loading docks.
