Dimensions and Arrangement. The dock height, depth and apron are
determined by the WMS, based upon such considerations as soiled dock
activities, truck types and dimensions, and cart and personnel movement and
Personnel Access. Appropriate stairs and ramps shall be required
to facilitate personnel movement, including accessibility requirements (see
Section 12), between the dock and the ground level.
Weather Protection. In locations of intemperate climate, ie.,
high wind, or temperature extremes, enclosed docks are required. In other
areas where an outside dock is adequate, a protective canopy shall be provided
to shield personnel and materials from rain or snow.
