    I like how you mentioned that safety should always come first whenever it comes to using ramping systems to load up places like docks and storage facilities because one little slip could mean an entire accident waiting to happen if the ramps aren’t used too well. Another thing to keep in mind is that making sure to move any and all items out of the way would make the loading dock safer to use since it’s less cluttered. If I had the chance to use a loading ramp I would always make sure that safety first is practiced by any and all who would be using the ramps…
