Loading and unloading equipment used in industrial settings to regularly deal with truck and rail car loads must be tailored to your operation to promote the highest level of productivity possible.

But these large products are also a great opportunity to improve employee safety, putting a focus on fall prevention that doesn't prevent workers from performing at their best.

One of the best ways to do this is to implement wide truck and railcar gangways, specifically designed by Carbis to improve safety.

Wide gangways take fall prevention one step further than conventional loading and unloading gear. If you choose specs tailored to your facility, these are actually the safest access gangways available, and offer the highest level of fall prevention.

Installing wide gangways is also one of the simpler ways to optimise worker safety during loading and unloading operations.

However, considering all facilities are different, it will require consultation with Carbis to determine which option is best for your industrial space. The gangways available range from 18 inches to the length of any truck or rail car.

By installing a wide gangway, companies can substantially increase accessibility to vehicles, no matter their size. These products are also ideal for helping protect against the potential of mis-spotting, and also make choosing available power options easier.

All of these platforms come with unique steering and large wheels that allow them to be moved even over uneven surfaces. However, they are designed to be lightweight so that even a single employee can operate them.

Don't compromise productivity for safety. Instead, optimise both by choosing a product from Carbis that is designed to meet the unique needs of your facility.
