TRUCK RESTRAINTS    

 

Truck restraints can be vitally important to insuring the safety and efficiency of loading docks in the face of potentially dangerous and destructive accidents. Early driver departure and trailer creep are two leading causes of dock area mishaps. A driver who attempts to move his truck away from the dock too soon creates a hazardous situation for people, equipment, and materials.

Trailer creep can be even more dangerous. This is when the trailer slowly moves away from the dock due to the impact of continual forklift traffic between the dock and the truck bed. Trailer creep can create a gap which puts the forklift and driver at risk of crashing down into it. 

Truck restraints can help prevent potentially disruptive, destructive, and tragic occurrences by locking trailers into position at the loading dock. 
This makes the safety benefits and ROI of a truck restraint system worth considering.
