A loading dock is the part of an industrial or commercial building where service vehicles, such as semis and railroad cars, are loaded and unloaded. Loading docks may be located on the exterior of a building, flush with a building opening, or fully enclosed. Loading docks must be able to accommodate vehicles that deliver and pick up goods at the building. Operating heavy equipment on or near a loading dock has the potential for accidents.
Loading docks experts have experience in warehouse operations, trucking, OSHA, and safety. Safety around loading docks and loading dock operations are key in the shipping industry. This includes warehouse safety, regulatory compliance, workplace accidents, and OSHA citation investigations.
Loading docks expert witnesses might be able to address issues related to negligent maintenance, equipment inspections, safety procedures, personal protective equipment, site inspections, and work accidents. They are certified as comprehensive practice safety professionals, motor vehicle fleet safety directors, and product safety managers. They have professional experience at safety consultant firms, as safety engineers, and as civil engineering officers.
They are members of the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES), the American Association of Engineering Societies, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).
