Warehouse Dock Safety

Prevention and Reducing Risks

  • Drive forklifts slowly on docks and dock plates
  • Secure dock plates and check to see if the plate can safely support the load
  • Keep clear of dock edges and never back up forklifts to the dock’s edge
  • Provide visual warnings near dock edges Prohibit “dock jumping” by employees
  • Make sure that dock ladders and stairs meet OSHA specifications


Injuries happen here when forklifts run off the dock, products fall on employees or equipment strikes a person.
