In all industries, but especially in transportation and warehousing, safety is a critical component of success, particularly when it comes to equipment use.
Employees can use all different types of equipment to unload product from dry vans or box trucks. Some employers equip their trucks with lift gates, while others use a ramp and a cart to unload product. All methods pose particular safety risks, so safety awareness and training for employees is essential.
Ramp safety risks are something employers should be concerned about. If a ramp is not set up properly, it can lead to serious injuries and loss of product. There are several risks that an employer should be aware of when employees are working with ramps and things to keep in mind when designing new ramp systems or replacing old ramps.
