Omron Scientific’s DSS Trapped Key Loading Dock Safety System protects dock workers by enforcing a safe sequence of actions. The trapped key concept means that the loading dock door cannot be opened until the trailer brakes are locked. Once the trailer brake glad-hand is set, the glad-hand key is released allowing the loading dock door to be opened. This solution works with all vehicle types and can interlock with other existing dock safety products. The DSS system also ensures compliance with government safety regulations, without wheel chocks or restraints.
Operators simply lock the trailer brakes, open the loading dock door (automatic outdoor or manual indoor options are available) and load/unload and depart.
