Loading dock fatalities and serious injuries occur when there is unwanted separation between the trailer or truck being loaded and the loading dock. Forklift operators are often victims of such incidents when their vehicles fall into the resultant gaps or are driven out of open trailers. In such cases, operators are subject to crushing injuries if the forklift overturns during the fall or collides with the dock apron.
