Every business owner would love to ensure the safety of their workers and prevent occupational hazards at all costs. Every manufacturing and essential business has a warehouse and these warehouses have loading docks. Loading docks are essentially places where the goods are loaded and unloaded for various purposes such as storage, distribution, etc.
The loading docks are usually made of concrete and they undergo heavy loads due to the movement of men, machines, and materials. Heavy vehicles such as forklifts, dollies, hand trucks, etc. are constantly used and run on loading docks. Hence it is important to ensure that the docks are safe and stronger.
Under heavy loads, the loading docks usually settle or sink. The common reason for loading dock failure or repair is improper soil compaction and incorrect water channel run-off. Sinking and settling can further the damage and result in loading dock failure.
