Safety has a leg to stand on



When ‘spotted’ on landing gear, for loading and unloading, transport trailers present a critical safety risk. Stressed by the combined weight of cargo and forklifts, trailers can up-end, or landing gear can collapse, creating potentially devastating situations for workers caught within.

Trailer stability is affected by a complex relationship involving number of axles, trailer weight, landing gear placement, weight & placement of cargo, weight & position of forklift and more.


When the cab disengages from the trailer, the trailer is at risk of collapse unless a secondary support system is utilized. For strength and support, Ideal Warehouse’s line up of portable Trailer Stands can be easily placed under a trailer’s front end to help prevent mishap and tragedy.

Trailer Jack Alert

Trailer Jack Alert

It is a dangerously common practice to use a trailer maintenance jack in lieu of a trailer stand. Because a trailer jack can be lowered even if trailer landing gear has failed, the dock worker is at deadly risk from trailer tip over. Jacks should only be used for the maintenance/tire change operations for which they are designed and should never be used in place of a trailer stand.
