Warehouse Safety


4/9/2020


Dock bumpers are the unsung heroes of safety. While they are rarely credited with protecting life and limb, they simply, and economically, absorb the relentless, repeated impacts of trucks docking. It's no small feat: preserving the integrity of the warehouse's structure, and preventing an incident that can shut down a loading dock for days.   Ideal Warehouse Innovations offers more than 500 SKUs of loading dock bumpers for sale from three warehouses across North America -- which means that we have the product you need in stock and ready to ship.  


Ideal Warehouse Innovations is the perfect partner for companies that care about their employees. From the parking lot to the loading dock, to the interior spaces of your warehouse or industrial facility, maintaining a safe work environment takes planning, commitment, and the right products.


For a high traffic dock environment handling heavy loads, we recommend the AutoStand Plus jack stand. It is well-suited to a busy workplace since its self-levelling pad can be positioned in seconds; it is built to withstand the weight (100,000 lbs static load capacity) and stresses of a bustling loading dock.  A bollard post is a fundamental safety item for most loading docks, but for some applications, you may need to consider your options carefully. Do you need a solid steel, concrete-fillable, high visibility post that will stop trucks or forklifts in their tracks? Or is your need suited to a more forgiving "bollard with bounce" that absorbs impact to protect both sides of the equation: your staff and structures as well as the forklift or truck that encroaches on their space?

The job of a column guard is not just to protect the column from impact. A simple cushion wrap can handle that task. The more important reason for guarding columns from the impact of a moving forklift is to maintain the structural integrity of the whole building. Columns are engineered to support vertical loads, not the sideways force of a collision. A column guard doesn't just absorb that impact, it prevents it.  The MARC (Maintenance and Retrieval Cart) is the safe and cost-effective solution for preventing unsafe entry into pallet rack systems. It is a self-propelled system capable of travelling the full distance of the rack system providing operators with an engineered safe zone at any height and depth and enabling them to perform a variety of tasks such as inspection, repairs and maintenance. If your operation includes the use of high density racking for storage, how are you currently handling the need to clear obstructions, perform inspections and conduct regular maintenance within the pushback racking? You should be aware that rack systems are not designed for operator access, and aerial platforms are not engineered for lateral loads. The MARC creates a movable safe zone. The MARC is available in a number of configurations and can be customized to meet your specified needs in any application including pallet flow, push back, double deep and more.   


We create safer workplaces, by designing & manufacturing and/or sourcing a complete line-up of products that enhance workplace safety in warehouses, on loading docks, and in industrial settings, and by making these goods available globally through our distribution partners. We believe that planning and acting to prevent injury, damage and downtime is always the right strategic choice.


A push back rack system has a great many benefits, and is overall a very efficient system, but it can present its challenges. For example, when there is a jam, no matter the cause, the result is out-of-service pallet positions. As our case study demonstrates, these jams can often create extremely dangerous situations for operators. The solution for this need to perform tasks within a push back racking structure is The MARC - an engineered anchor system that allows operators to move within the racks safely. No more man-handling spilled product or climbing among the racks without an approved anchor point. Watch this video to see The MARC in action!  If your loading dock suffers from the stresses of up and down trailer movement, our gliding steel face bumper is an ideal solution: it compresses to protect from impact and glides to resist surface abrasion. Our 5-year replacement warranty tells you it's the strongest impact protection you can buy.  


Whether you need warehouse guardrails and trailer jack stands to protect your people or loading dock bumpers and bollard posts to safeguard your equipment, we have a full spectrum of solutions to create a safer workplace.
