Abstract During handling operations on loading docks, trucks sometimes start moving unexpectedly and cause a fall of the forklift truck and its operator. A possible means of prevention consists of installing a device for anchoring the truck to the dock. Several systems are commercially available on the market, but not all are effective and reliable. An earlier project consisted of the publication of an inventory of existing anchoring devices. In the present project, a tool for systematically evaluating the safety of systems and means of retention according to the particular context of the dock and the enterprise is developed and validated. The results are presented in the form of a research report and 13 appendices.
