The safe loading of vehicles and securing of the load is vitally important in preventing injury to people and damage to property that can arise from the loss of the load.

Why should loads be secured?

Loads should be secured to keep everyone safe and to ensure that unsecured loads cannot lead to injury, death, or significant property damage during the transport or unloading of goods. Apart from the human cost, think about the impact of failing to safely secure loads, may have on your business arising from a road accident caused by loss of a load on to a motorway.
