Tips for loading & unloading
When loading a vehicle it is essential to check for anything loose that may fall off, how stable the load is, whether the load can topple over, and the condition of the load-securing equipment such as lashing straps.
According to Gov if the driver has not loaded the vehicle, operators are required to inform the driver of the following information:
- The loads they carry
- How to unload
- What they should do if the load shifts
This enables the safety of both the driver and other road users.
Before unloading the vehicle, it is essential to check for shifted loads, as this could be a potentially dangerous situation that will need to be reviewed by an assessor, to assess best how to unload.
