Do loading docks require fall protection?
OSHA Regulations Require that loading docks 46″ or taller require fall protection.

OSHA Loading Dock Requirements

Loading docks are busy hubs of activity for most warehouses, distribution centers, industrial buildings, and manufacturing facilities. Because these areas are heavily trafficked by vehicles and workers and because of the sheer size and weight of many of the products and materials that are being moved in and out of the facility, the dock area is also space where workplace injuries frequently occur.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reports that twenty-five percent of all warehouse injuries occur on loading docks. To help lower that number, OSHA has put specific requirements in place for loading dock safety, through 29 Code of Federal Regulations 1910.176 – Material Handling. These regulations include guidelines on the handling of mechanical equipment, secure storage of materials, housekeeping, clearance, and others. As a facility owner or manager, it is essential to know and implement OSHA’s requirements. Other guidelines include:
