Don’t take any chances when it comes to load securement. Period.
When you think of the dangers of trucking, you might immediately picture treacherous weather conditions or poorly maintained roads. But the truth is, one of the most significant risks in the trucking industry is something much simpler: improper load securement.
Imagine driving down the highway with a load that hasn’t been tied down properly. You hit a bump or take a sharp turn, and suddenly your cargo shifts, throwing off the balance of your truck and causing a potentially catastrophic accident. It’s a scenario that happens far too often, and it’s one that can be easily avoided with proper load securement techniques.
Proper load securement involves more than just tying down your cargo with ropes or chains. It requires a deep understanding of physics and balance, as well as an ability to assess each load and determine the best way to secure it.
Unfortunately, not all truckers take the time to learn proper load securement techniques. Some may cut corners to save time or money, while others may simply be ignorant of the risks. But the consequences of improper load securement can be severe. In addition to the risk of accidents, there are also legal and financial consequences if your load damages other vehicles or property.
