Loading dock safety crucial to prevent workplace injuries

Loading docks are areas that could be particularly hazardous in distribution centers, warehouses, manufacturing plants and fulfillment centers in San Diego and other California cities. With the primary activities in these facilities focused on receiving goods and then distributing the merchandise, loading docks are typically hubs of activity. For this reason, establishing safety protocols is crucial for the prevention of workplace injuries.

Trench-related workplace injuries can be prevented

Data provided by the Bureau of Labor Statistics cause concern among safety authorities about the prevalence of trench collapses that cause about 25 fatalities nationwide each year, including San Diego. Reportedly, 75% of trench-related deaths are caused by cave-ins, while electrocutions and struck-by incidents cause the balance. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration use emphasis campaigns each year to underscore the hazards trench workers face, and also to increase enforcement of safety standards to prevent workplace injuries.

Heavy equipment hazards on job sites can be mitigated

If you are an operator of any of the massive machines that work on construction sites in California, the safety of you and your coworkers will be at risk. On many job sites, employers prioritize profits instead of employee safety. When this is the case, you might be wise to learn about the hazards and how to mitigate them.
