National Occupational Standards: Task Analysis – Dock Worker (2010)

Dock workers are responsible for sorting, handling, and loading freight as safely and efficiently as possible. They are employed by transportation companies, manufacturing and distribution companies and moving companies.

This guide, prepared by the Canadian Trucking Human Resources Council (CTHRC), breaks down the job of a dock worker to identify specific tasks carried out and skills required.

The authors have identified general areas of competence (GACs), which are the major functions or responsibilities of a particular position. Each GAC is broken down further into tasks and subtasks.

There is also a summary of the Essential Skills (ES) and their levels that are particularly relevant to each task. These summaries can help in identifying entry-level requirements for training programs, and serve as a guide to upgrading opportunities.
