Freyer wheel chocks are made in the USA with high-quality processes in a variety of materials and styles. Our line of wheel chocks will keep your loading dock, garage or work area safe. Proper use of wheel chocks ensures parked vehicles and trailers stay put. Chocking wheels during loading and unloading prevents wheel roll and “trailer creep.” These are hazardous conditions that cause many workplace accidents resulting in serious fall and crush injuries.
OSHA 1910.178 requires that trucks and trailers in your work area are chocked during loading and unloading. Forklifts have fallen between gaps in un-chocked trailers. When wheel chocks are not utilized trailers and box trucks can “creep” away from the loading dock. This creates a great danger for employees working at your loading dock. Freyer offers signage and hangers to keep wheel chocks easily accessible. Clear signage sends a message that using chocks on every load, every time is not a suggestion – it is a requirement.
