Loading Dock Floors

Slip-resistant surfaces, clear, unfettered access and defined pedestrian walkways help combat potential hazards around loading dock floors.

A loading dock, whether it be for a warehouse, hotel,  shopping centre or industrial premises is the key point of access for the delivery and dispatch of stock.  It is essential that these areas are well designed, maintenance free,  provide clear access and meet OH&S requirements for the prevention of slip, trips and falls.

“Slips occur when a person’s foot loses traction with the ground surface due to wearing inappropriate footwear or when walking on slippery floor surfaces such as those that are highly polished, wet or greasy.” [Safework Australia. 2012]

Slip resistant walkway using Rhino LiningMost loading docks and access areas, including walkways, are concrete.  However, uncoated concrete can be slippery, particularly if water or liquid has been accidentally spilt.  If this an issue in your workplace, rather than replacing the floor, have it coated with a slip-resistant surface coating such as Rhino Linings ArmaFloor 400UHS.

A case in point is this busy loading dock walkway which is located at an inner city apartment in Southbank, Victoria.  In addition to being coated with Rhino ArmaFloor 400UHS, slip-resistant particles were added to this loading dock floor providing safe access to and from the dock.  What’s more, the floor coating was custom coloured to define the pedestrian walkway ensuring the area is highly visible for all users, further improving safety in the workplace.

Rhino Linings Flooring applicators offer a range of solutions and long-term benefits for the customer whose focus is on safety in the workplace, long-lasting durability and minimal downtime. Contact us now for more information.

Save on cost, Save on time, Save on OH&S penalties.
