Importance of Securing Loads

Graham Marshall - Monday, April 08, 2013

All loads, whether large or small should be adequately secured when being transported by road.

The Origin Energy safety alert shown below highlights how packing crates which are not fit for purpose, or have become unfit for purpose over time can become dangerous in themselves.

The incident shows how a  part of the packing crate disintegrated and was ejected from a moving vehicle on a highway in Queensland Australia.

This high-potential incident could have led to disastrous consequences, but in this instance, luck intervened and no other road users were harmed.
