Commercial vehicle load security continues to be high on the agenda for the DVSA and HSE when carrying out road side checks. Figures would suggest the enforcement authorities are right in targeting this problem, as there are thousands of prohibition notices issued every year for load security issues, despite the majority of fleet operators stating they secure their loads properly every time.

One area that provides numerous of load security incidents each for fleet operators, which they have little control over, is where trailers are loaded by a third party. This is commonplace within the pallet networks, as an example, and a poorly loaded trailer will automatically transfer the risk from the warehouse to the road.

Although the enforcement authorities continue to work on revising and updating guidance on load security, numerous risks remain for the fleet operator, their drivers and all other road users.

Therefore, we are delighted to announce the excellent and straight talking Mike Colborne, Health & Safety Advisor at Tarmac Cement and Lime. Mike has considerable expertise in how to manage this challenging subject, having previously been responsible for managing a multi vehicle fleet in excess of 1000 vehicles.
