Having a working dock communication system is an integral part of loading dock safety. A two way light allows clear communication between the truck driver and dock personnel. A common use of a light communication system is to use the light to let the driver know when his truck is done being loaded or unloaded. Dock communication systems can also be used to control traffic in loading zones. Combining a light communication system with vehicle restraints adds another measure of safety to your loading docks. Many styles of lights are available including new LED units which feature bulbs that never need to be replaced. Visors on top of lights reduce glare.
