Unloading bays are hazardous areas

One of the riskiest areas in logistics in terms of accidents and injuries are loading bays. Loading bays have been designed to accommodate the loading and unloading of large lorries, so the aperture of the bays are several feet above ground level, and in line with the floor of the HGV trailer. This facilitates goods being loaded or unloaded by forklift trucks or hand pump trolleys, which can simply drive on and off at one level. But there are 2 hazards.

  • A fall from height hazard (off the edge of the loading bay)
  • Vehicles being reversed up to the loading bay aperture

Both hazards can cause accidents and injuries.

The job of the banks-person

The role of the banks-person is to direct a vehicle to its loading or unloading point. This usually involves a vehicle having to be reversed and this is often when accidents happen. The banks-person should never get directly behind a reversing vehicle. If he/she does, the driver of the reversing vehicle will not be able to see him/her. If the banks-person then trips or falls, they are in great danger of being run over or crushed against the platform wall.

Best practice

All companies that employ banksmen/women in their loading bays have a duty of care to ensure they are properly and thoroughly trained. Best practice dictates that where possible the banks-person should not be on the floor, level with the vehicle. It is safer to stand near the edge of the elevated floor inside the loading bay itself.
