Each year, hundreds of serious injuries and fatalities occur when unsecured, or improperly secured dump beds fall while workers are performing routine maintenance and repairs on large off road and quarry type dump trucks. WorkSafe USA is proud to announce the patented DL-109 FT Off Road and Quarry Dump Truck safety support system. The Dump-Lok DL-109 FT is an engineering breakthrough in workplace safety for the mining and quarry industry. The patented Dump-Lok DL-109 FT steel braces lock your truck’s dump bed in the raised position, preventing it from falling in cases of system failure or operator error. Plus, Dump-Lok DL-109 FT safely holds large dump boxes at angles higher than most manufacturer body props, giving maintenance personal safe access to more areas underneath the dump bed.
Dump-Lok DL-109 FT has been independently tested by the Structures and Materials Testing Laboratory at the University of Illinois – Champaign to support a massive 75,000 lbs (pairs).
OSHA has issued citations to employers for failing to provide lockout procedures while employees were working under the dump body of dump trucks. OSHA recognizes the hazard of unsecured dump beds, and has recommended using an alternative “truck bed brace bracket”. (OSHA SHIB 09-18-2006)
Dump-Lok is so unique and original that it’s covered under United States Patent # 6905174.
