Title: Safely Secure Loads


1
SAFELY SECURE LOADS A REMINDER For drivers
their supervisors October 2002
2
Did you learn from this fatality?
3
No you did not !! There are still badly secured
loads traveling on our roads today !!! See the
next few slides .
4
This is a 45 ton bulldozer that fell off a low
bed trailer because...
5
  • Only two chains were usednot enough for a 45
    ton dozer!
  • Steel tracks on steel low-bed low friction
    factor!
  • Poor supervisionwrongly approved the loading
    (staff not properly trained)
  • Driver- too fast round a sharp bend - braked
    harshly

Should have used - 4 chains- wood deck
low-bed Driver should have- travelled at speed
safe for load and road conditions
6
ANOTHER EXAMPLE
Rock-breaker loose on the deck
Single chain
  • a 28 ton backhoe retained with just ONE chain
  • the rock-breaker is totally unrestrained
  • Both would fall off in sharp or sudden turn
    and could easily kill
    someone......

7
Can you believe this??
  • Wrong
  • high bed trailer
  • headboard split broken no protection to driver
    (would be crushed if load moved forward)
  • chains slack and wrongly positioned

8
  • Very slack chains
  • No chocks
  • Incorrect chain angles
  • Trailer bed is too narrow
  • Tyres overhang trailer an unstable load !

9
It is not only large loads that are not being
secured correctly !! It also applies to small
items.
This truck is loaded with oil drums 2 drums
stand loose! These can easily fall over, roll
around, get damaged and leak.
10
Here is a tall wooden crate restrained by a web
lashing which had broken and was knotted in two
places
Do not use lashings with knots they are NOT
strong. Throw them away! Destroy them! Do NOT use
them!
11
  • Another totally unsecured load
  • six pallets of flexible water pipe with no
    lashings or any other load restraint used
  • a length of rope had been placed across the top
    of the pallets, probably for decoration!
  • web lashing belts should have been used
  • they were lucky this load did not fall off

12
  • NOTE to Managers/Supervisors
  • This presentation is a REMINDER of the importance
    of load safety and good load securing. Prevent
    further accidents due to poor load securing.
