The securing of a load must be of primary concern for all road users, not only does effective load securing prevent goods from falling onto roads causing danger to other road users, it also saves money by ensuring that goods arrive at their destination undamaged.

Updated in May 2022, the guidance compliments existing guidance from DfT and EC, providing operators from different sectors of industry with useful information on how DVSA and other regulators expect loads to be secured when in transit.

It also provides useful links to other industry specific guidance and a section explaining what your responsibilities are in relation to load securing aimed at operators, consignors and drivers.
