How Effective Is Your Truck Loading Fall Protection?
The effectiveness of your truck loading fall protection hinges on various factors, each tailored to your specific needs and loading site challenges.

- Cargo Properties and Hazards: The nature of the materials being loaded and unloaded plays a significant role in determining the required safety measures.
- Site-Specific Loading Processes: Factors like the volume and size of trailers, traffic flow, space constraints, existing configurations, and current equipment all influence the safety measures needed.
- Adherence to Standards: Northern Platforms aligns our safety recommendations with relevant industry safety standards, procedures, and best practices.

- Maintenance and Changes: Our team assesses whether your existing equipment has been properly maintained and if any alterations to the site layout or loading processes have occurred or are required.
Fall Protection Systems from Northern Platforms
One of the most common causes of workplace injuries is employees attempting to cover flatbed truckloads without proper protection. At Northern Platforms, our innovative fall protection systems eliminate these risks, safeguarding your workers and enhancing their efficiency. Two of the most common systems our team recommends are as follows:
- Overhead Tarping Systems: By suspending a tarp from an overhead track, our system enables operators to cover flatbed trailers safely without climbing onto them. A powered winch system and hand-held control make the process easy and secure.
- Access Equipment: Our wide range of SafeRack rolling platforms provides a secure walking surface beside flatbed trailers, railcars, tanker trucks and more, streamlining loading processes while maintaining safety.
