Each year, hundreds of serious injuries and fatalities occur when unsecured, or improperly secured dump beds fall while workers are performing the truck maintenance. WorkSafe USA, Inc is proud to present the patented Dump-Lok dump truck and dump trailer safety support device. Dump-Lok is an engineering breakthrough in work place safety. The patented Dump-Lok 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 safely holds dump boxes at angles higher than most manufacturer body props, giving workers safe access to more areas underneath the dump bed.
The Dump-Lok steel braces are sold exclusively in pairs and are strictly intended to be used as a pair. Dump-Lok has been independently tested by the Structures and Materials Testing Laboratory at the University of Wisconsin-Madison to support a massive 50,000 lbs (pairs). Dump-Lok can be used universally on any brand of dump box. All Dump-Lok can products are equipped with high grade, high tensile steel safety chains to further ensure safe repairs.
Dump-Lok fulfills OSHA’s recommendation for employers to protect employees from the hazards faced when working under a raised dump truck dump body by using an alternative “truck bed bracket”. (OSHA SHIB 09-18-2006)
