Load Securement!

By October 21, 2019Blog Posts

Overall- you all have been doing a good job with load securement.

Log trucks, remember 4 wrappers on all loads, 2 wrappers must cover all short logs.

Keep your eyes on binder position, as it will let you know if they are getting loose.

Flat beds, keep checking your straps for damaged spots- ¾” is the max size for rips, tears, defects, etc. “THAT CAUSE DOUBT AS TO THE STRENGTH OF THE TIE DOWN”

It’s easier to replace the strap before you transport a load than get caught at a scale, or roadside inspection!

All loads must be checked within 50 miles of starting transport= if you don’t log it you didn’t do it!

 

Be SAFE- keep it Secure!
