Transport Safety - An Operator's Guide to Safe Loading and Transport 

Product Code: FOR 0121

It can seem like a waste of time and money to strap a load down for a short journey and it's easy to assume that a heavy load or a very light load either won't move at all or won't cause a problem if it does. The reality is that loads can and do move, however carefully you drive, and load shifts can damage the goods you're carrying along with your vehicle and put your life and other people's lives at risk.

Driving a commercial vehicle is one of the most dangerous occupations in the UK, but many serious injuries and deaths that happen as a result of load shifts are entirely preventable. This guide was written to provide simple, straightforward advice on safe loading and transport in general haulage.

It explains the reasons why loads move during transport, and what you can do to stop it happening. It also gives examples of ways to secure different types of load and sets out what your legal responsibilities are in relation to load safety and what you can do to make sure you're complying with them.
