Numerous injuries and deaths occur each year in the loading dock during vehicle backing. One local OSHA Area Director states “This office has investigated one similar incident per year over the past several years, and it's about time these types of fatalities stop. Worker death from this cause can happen to companies large or small, and we all need to work on prevention.” The government does not mandate any backup signal alarm on most motor vehicles including semi-tractor trailer.
