When ‘spotted’ on landing gear, for loading and unloading, transport trailers present a critical safety risk. Stressed by the combined weight of cargo and forklifts, trailers can up-end, or landing gear can collapse, creating potentially devastating situations for workers caught within. Trailer stability is aff ected by a complex relationship involving number of axles, trailer weight, landing gear placement, weight and placement of cargo, weight and position of forklift and more.
Understanding the load and stability ratings of all the different equipment in the marketplace is beyond the training of most forklift drivers, making every trip into the nose of the trailer a gamble.
When the cab disengages from the trailer, the trailer is at risk of collapse unless a secondary support system is utilized. For strength and support, IRONguardTM’s line up of portable Trailer Stands can be easily placed under a trailer’s front end to help prevent mishap and tragedy.
