New AIAG Work Group Needs Your Participation

we need you-blog

As a member, you have much to contribute, and volunteering on an AIAG committee or work group gives your company a seat at the table and an influential voice in the discussion. The support of thousands of members and industry volunteers working together in a cooperative environment makes it possible for AIAG to create the guidelines and tools that result in streamlined processes and solutions to our industry’s pain points and challenges.

Now, AIAG’s Optimum Shipping & Receiving System Workgroup is seeking your input as they work to update the Optimum Shipping and Receiving Systems Handbook (M6) to include information from a new OSHA standard: 1910.28 Duty to Have Fall Protection and Falling Object Protection.

The workgroup’s goals are to:

  • Determine how industry can protect the open edges of docks that are 48 inches high and more
  • Determine whether docks less than 48 inches high also need fall hazard protection
  • Add a section on pedestrian dock safety

Additional representation from OEMs as well as suppliers is needed on this committee, especially those with intermodal shipping container, chassis equipment knowledge, and dealing with manufacturer trailer specifications, cargo containers, etc.  

For many members, the opportunity to collaborate with some of the industry’s brightest minds is their most valued benefit of membership. If you are interested in participating on this committee, please email to Lecedra Welch at cr@aiag.org.
