5.8 – Checklist – Make Sure you use enough restraint to keep you and others safe

The LRG makes a number of key points in regard to ensuring your load is adequately restrained (see page 18) :

  • Movement is unacceptable if it negatively impacts on weight distribution or the stability of the vehicle.

Freight movement
  • Expected conditions of operation include emergency braking and minor collisions. Insert photo of minor collision between a truck and other vehicle
  • Part or all of the load coming off the vehicle is a load restraint breach.

Freight dislodgement
  • Make sure your load restraint system can withstand the loading performance standard forces. (See Lessons 4.1-4.5

If in doubt get your load restraint system certified by a qualified engineer (see lesson 4.6) .
