Industrial safety specialist Castell Interlocks has developed a data-gathering and analysis solution to maximize loading dock efficiency.
Salvo DockMonitor integrates with the company’s Salvo Loading Dock Safety System to display live graphic information running on a PC interface for assessment of overall site performance and individual dock statistics.
Castell said the system helps prevent accidents and complies with Occupational Safety and Health Administration standards.
The system also benchmarks dockworker activities, including comparing shift performances and logging carrier information to specific docks. In addition, it allows for scheduling and measuring dock maintenance.
“With this data costs can be cut by potentially reducing the number of loading docks required in a facility or suggesting increased activity for company growth, ensuring assets are used as efficiently and economically as possible,” the company said.
