Safety is a busy distribution facility’s No. 1 priority. These operations can't afford to have accidents or equipment not working properly.
Just because you have a smaller operation doesn't mean you don't face similar security, safety and operational issues as larger operations.
Food and pharmaceutical facilities have to be extremely conscious of any potential air leaks, visible light and energy loss.
When protecting and monitoring the thermal envelope is critical — such as in a cooler or freezer facility — sealing the loading dock door and lock leveler is imperative.
Creating and maintaining a safe work environment is the keystone of any successful warehouse and loading dock operation.
Temperature-controlled facilities (such as cold storage facilities) pose unique challenges as they are specifically designed to accommodate a range of different temperature and humidity needs for all varieties of products.

New product aims to reduce falls from loading docks
MEQUON, Wis. – APS Resource recently expanded its product line with the addition of the Dual Chain™. With fall protection being an important issue in the warehousing industry, the Dual Chain offers facilities a low-cost safety option that’s designed to comply with the necessary OSHA standards.
Consisting of two high visibility yellow security chains made of powder-coated steel, the Dual Chain is anchored in aluminum rings from opposite sides of the loading dock door frame. The chains are then stretched across the loading dock and secured into their corresponding receivers by pre-attached turnbuckles. This product is manually operated and comes in lengths that accommodate door sizes of 8’, 9’ and 10’.
“Some of the largest changes to OSHA’s fall protection guidelines came in 2017 and we’ve seen that carry into 2018,” states APS Resource Aftermarket Sales Manager Mark Smith. “The Dual Chain is an easy to use, easy to install barrier made to help protect workers in a loading dock environment.”
With product solutions like the Dual Chain, workers can have the peace of mind that they’re being protected by products that meet the proper safety requirements.
