The Importance of Drop-Off Protection

September 23, 2022

Times when your loading docks are vacant can present safety risks to your employees and equipment. Your employees need to be protected while they are working, whether they are driving a forklift, working on foot, or running a pallet jack. W.E. Carlson provides solutions to ensure personnel and equipment are safe at all times with their Drop-Off Protection Barriers.

Why Proper Barriers are Essential for your Operation.

Companies hold the responsibility to provide a safe work environment and adequate protection for their employees. There are also guidelines set in place by ANSI and OSHA regarding safety practices for openings where danger exists. Your company must learn and follow those guidelines because not only are they required, but they are important in protecting yourself against disability claims and having to replace or repair damaged products.
