Safe loads

Recommended Posts

When I have taken nets I tie the straps to each other to avoid spillage. Other than that though I cant see a problem as the bag cant move far in that tub.

I would have tied the handles to avoid it spilling but I don't think it's a serious problem.

I have seen artic loaded with bags of sand just sitting there. 

Retired traffic cop told me if it can be pulled off truck then that's a prosecution.

By law that dumpy bag should have a net over it and ratchet straps , to stop spillage from bag esp during manouvres , eg roundabout or having to swerve .  also restrained by strap to prevent load shifting eg during braking , comes under insecure load which VOSA have a purge on at times .....we all remember seeing dumpy bags of sand etc unrestrained on flat bed artic trailers but not now !!

Nail and head. Wouldn't want a log bouncing off my windscreen after bouncing out the top of the bag
