Load Securing

Load Securing Checklist

Each year in the UK, millions of pounds worth of goods are damaged and more than 1,200 people are injured as a result of unsecure loads tipping over while in transit. But your load doesn’t just have to fall over to be a hazard, you’ve seen those all too familiar scenes on TV of lorries shedding their loads on the motorways, resulting in backed up congestion. Goods can move around inside a trailer if they are not properly secured, which could potentially cause a vehicle to overturn and injure the driver. Let’s be honest, it IS the law to secure your load, so why not follow it and prevent the hassle? Recently, there have been more and more spot checks put in place to catch out and prevent unsecure loads, but we really shouldn’t risk it, we should always be prepared. Spending that little bit extra time securing your goods is much better than a fine and points on your license, it saves money and ensures goods arrive at their destination undamaged.

Correct loading and securing of goods in vehicles is essential to ensuring safety on the road at all times. Here at Reid Brothers UK, we pride ourselves as load securing specialists and we have all the essential products that you need in stock to ensure that your load stays secure throughout each journey.

We have created a load securing checklist for you to follow to ensure your goods stay secure.

  • Load your goods in accordance with the allowed vehicle weight (there are penalties if this goes over, you have been warned)
  • Arrange your goods in the best possible way, placing the heavier goods at the bottom and the lighter at the top
  • Load in accordance to the unloading sequence, to make like easier for you
  • Avoid any unnecessary gaps between your goods. We have dunnage bags available which are ideal for filling the voids between your load to prevent movement
  • – Ensure that all the equipment you are using is in a good condition and doesn’t present any faults to damage your goods. If you need an upgrade, take a look at the load securing section on our website complete with ratchet straps, blue rope and much more
  • Ensure that all of your lashings are fastened securely and at the best possible angle
  • Check that your securing measures will cause no harm to your goods, and likewise that your goods will not cause harm to the securing measures
  • Always make sure you check your load securing arrangements regularly throughout the journey, especially after heavy breaking or sudden changes in direction (provided that it is suitable to do so)
  • Recheck your load securing equipment each time goods have been unloaded, redistributed or loaded
  • Drive smart and anticipate any potential situations ahead to prevent any heavy breaking or sudden changes in direction.

It is important that this checklist is followed before any journey you embark on with goods. These points ensure a successful journey and prevent any damages to the goods or the vehicle, and YOU driving as well as the others on the road around you.
