Why Are LED Safety Lights Essential for Your Loading Dock?
Safety features and loading dock design always go hand-in-hand. In fact, at Southern Dock Products, we are proud to feature a whole range of safety equipment that owners can implement within their loading docks.
While big-ticket items like wheel restraints and impact barriers are some of the most obvious pieces of equipment that promote safety, LED lights are an equally important, yet oft-overlooked feature for a warehouse or loading dock.
Let’s take a closer look at the safety features of LED lights as well as some of the other ways a loading dock can benefit from this product.
LED Lights Improve General Loading Dock Safety
Accidents at a loading dock can be catastrophic for everyone involved. So, any loading dock manager should always take every precaution necessary to keep employees and visitors safe.
LED lights create a nuanced level of visual communication between drivers and the loading dock itself. Brightly lit LED lights allow drivers to know which docks are available for unloading, and which docks are currently off-limits.
This communication helps prevent accidents between drivers, accidents involving your dock employees, and accidents that result in damage to your property.
LED Lights Are Energy Efficient
Although on the surface, LED lights seem to have a higher cost than other types of lights for your loading dock, their longer lifespan between 50,000 and 100,000 hours makes them a more energy-efficient and economical option for loading dock safety lighting.
On top of their lower cost of ownership, LED lights are extremely environmentally friendly and are 95% recyclable. So, if your company has dreams of going green and reducing its environmental footprint LED safety lights are a great way to get a head start on your goals.
LED Lights Help Improve Your Operations
Not only do bright LED lights keep your workers safe, but they also lead to smoother operations for your loading dock.
When drivers can quickly determine where they can load and unload at your location, the process speeds up, and your loading dock is able to service more deliveries in less time.
