From securing cargo on flatbed trucks to spotting tank and hopper trucks, loading and unloading present serious safety and efficiency challenges. Specialized equipment, safety training and proper procedures are essential to protect your employees and your company’s bottom line.
Many loading spots evolve as various truck shapes and sizes demand new practices and processes. These small changes may contribute to unsafe truck spotting, increasing the risk of injury and fatal falls.
A comprehensive truck safety solution tailored to your needs is essential to meet these challenges and maintain efficient throughput.
We have provided thousands of solutions over the past 80 years. Let us design a solution that exactly meets your needs.
Our Solutions-Based Approach To Truck Safety
Since each truck loading facility has different needs and presents different potential hazards, it’s important to work closely with a trusted vendor. At Carbis Solutions, we start by determining your specific requirements and safety goals. The factors we assess include:
The operator’s tasks and environment during loading and unloading
The impact of varying truck sizes and configurations
The properties of your product and any safety hazards it may present
Your specific access needs during loading and unloading
Varying access points on the truck
Equipment needed to correctly spot the truck in the proper location
Your internal safety standards as well as applicable industry standards and best practices
How your site layout and traffic flow impact the safety equipment you use
Power limitations for electric, pneumatic and hydraulic equipment
In addition, we apply our expertise to assess the countless factors specific to tank trucks, hopper trucks and flatbeds. After documenting your company’s needs, we work with you to design a custom solution for your facility to help improve safety and increase throughput during loading and unloading.
Truck Safety Equipment
Here are a few examples of equipment we may suggest as part of your larger safety solution:
Truck Loading Racks
Workers often risk falling while opening vents, hatches and caps along the roof of a tank truck or hopper truck, because standard cages and gangways don’t offer the fall prevention and efficient access they need. Single- and multiple-hatch truck loading racks offer enhanced safety and productivity.
Our custom canopies and canopy systems keep your workers, equipment and product drier during truck loading, reducing the risk of slips, falls and contamination. Creating a safer working environment helps to cut down on injuries and waste, saving you money and time.
Flatbed Tarping Platforms
Trying to spread a protective tarp over a flatbed load may expose workers to safety risks, due to shifting contents and uneven or slippery surfaces. Tarping platforms enclose the vehicle, making it easier for employees to secure and tarp loads while also helping to protect them from falls.
