If you need to fulfil some of the statutory health and safety obligations, where failure to comply could lead to a severe fine, investing in the Crash Stop Trailer Stand is highly recommended.

Why is loading and unloading a trailer so dangerous?

Loading and unloading a container, especially when a fork-lift truck is involved can be a hazardous business, with the potential for a trailer that has uncoupled from the cab to become unstable and unbalanced quickly.

When the trailer is released, the weight distribution of the trailer and contents shifts, from just above the axle wheels (when full) to over the trailer support wheels (when half-full). When this happens without the operator's realisation, the scenario is that of a disaster waiting to happen. Stressed by the merged weight of cargo and fork-lifts, trailers can quickly up-end, or landing gear can collapse, resulting in situations that can easily be devastating situations for workers or bystanders. Trailer stability is also affected by a complicated relationship involving several axles, trailer weight, landing gear placement, weight and placement of cargo, load and position of fork-lift trucks and more.

Using a fork-lift in these conditions may lead to damage to the road surface, the trailer chassis, or result in a significant breach of health and safety risk if the trailer tips or falls forward. Knowledge of the load and stability ratings of all the different equipment in the marketplace is above the paygrade of the majority of fork-lift operators, making every trip into the nose of the trailer a gamble.

Avoid this with the Dancop's Crash Stop Trailer Stand, which is specifically designed to act as a trailer stabiliser or third support while loading and unloading.

The height-adjustable support additionally prevents any un-authorised units from coupling to the trailer. An additional locking bracket and padlock can also be supplied to secure the lowering lever for longer-term use. When it comes to avoiding costly compensation claims, it's vital to ensure you have a leg to stand on - and the Crash Stop Trailer Stand is the leg in question.
