Truck Fall Protection & Loading Platforms

What is Trucking Fall Protection?

Fall Protection Systems for the trucking industry are built to allow employees safe access to load, unload, inspect, or maintain trucks. According to OSHA, workers need to have fall protection equipment at heights of 4 feet or higher so all of Safe Harbor’s truck loading racks and platforms are designed with your employee’s safety in mind.

Truck Loading Racks

Another industrial sector that Safe Harbor has distinguished itself in is the trucking industry. Safe Harbor has designed, developed, and delivered customized truck loading racks and platforms, both single access platforms for single hatch trucks as well as multiple access platforms for multiple hatch trucks and trucking fall protection. In addition, we have engineered and produced customized truck safety cages and customized truck safety enclosures for single and multiple-hatch loading platforms.

Truck Fall Protection

Truck loading racks can be aligned with loading arms, canopies, and pneumatic and hydraulic systems to lower and raise gangways, transfer augers and to interface with other related equipment. Safe Harbor’s engineering and design staff can customize and modify truck loading platforms to meet the needs and requirements of any size and dimension tank truck. Other components include a single or multiple gangways, platform, handrails, safety tread stairs, canopy, and a standard or extended safety cage system for maximum fall protection.

In terms of single or multiple access platforms for multiple hatch trucks, Safe Harbor also designs custom solutions and retrofit systems for prospective and current clients.
