There are several steps you can take to secure high risk loads on a vehicle:
- Choose the right vehicle for the load: Make sure the vehicle is designed to carry the type and weight of the load you are transporting.
- Use the right equipment: Use appropriate load securing equipment such as straps, chains, or load bars, and make sure they are in good condition and properly rated for the load.
- Use enough equipment: Don't skimp on the number of straps, chains, or load bars you use. Use as many as necessary to distribute the load evenly and prevent it from shifting during transport.
- Inspect the load: Before you start driving, inspect the load to make sure it is properly secured and there are no loose items that could fall off during transport.
- Drive carefully: Take special care when driving with a high risk load. Avoid sudden accelerations, hard braking, and sharp turns, and keep a safe distance from other vehicles.
- Follow the law: In most places, there are specific laws and regulations governing the transport of high risk loads. Make sure you are familiar with these laws and comply with them at all times.
