I.   Background for the Trainer:
Does your company have proper dock plates, wheel chocks, and trailer supports?
II.   Speaker’s Notes:
These four habits are crucial to safety when loading/unloading trailers with a lift truck:
Check the dock plate for cracks or signs of wear, and be sure it is properly secured.
The trailer floor may have holes that the tire of a forklift could fall into, causing
a tipover.

Chock the trailer wheels to prevent trailer creep.
Support the nose of the trailer.
