Welcome to Load Restraint Fundamentals

Immerse yourself in a practical, visual online course designed to provide you with the essential knowledge for safe and effective load restraint in the heavy vehicle industry.

All loads are subject to forces that arise from a wide range of normal driving situations – accelerating, braking, cornering, sloping or bumpy road surfaces, and even air flow over the vehicle. Loads not adequately restrained or packaged may move or become loose during a journey, with potentially catastrophic outcomes.

Understanding of load restraint fundamentals is vital for everyone involved in the industry, from drivers and loaders to fleet managers and business owners.

This course is ideal for:

  • Staff involved in arranging the transport, of goods in or out of your organisation and anyone who manages staff that undertake these tasks.
  • Staff involved in the process of handling goods that enter or leave the organisation including drivers.
  • Managers, executives, and other parties wishing to understand their Chain of Responsibility obligations in these areas.
  • New entrants to the transport industry, and persons with experience wishing to refresh or extend their knowledge.
  • Persons working in roles that face the heavy vehicle industry, such as government agencies or departments.
