Reminder of the week.

Road check 2017 is Drawing Near, June 6th to the 8th

Road check 2017 will focus on Cargo Securement.

Each year, International Road check places special emphasis on a category of violations. This year’s focus is cargo securement. While checking for compliance with safe cargo securement regulations is always part of roadside inspections, CVSA is highlighting cargo securement safety this year as a reminder of its importance to highway safety.

Anything and everything carried on a truck must be properly secured to prevent loss of control or falling cargo from injuring drivers, passengers, or pedestrians. While safe cargo securement principles (and of course regulations) apply to every single item carried for delivery, they also apply to anything else on the truck, including dunnage, tools, and equipment you need to get your job done. Shovels, blocks, webbing, chains, spare tires, brooms, forklifts, pallet jacks, winches, ratchets, etc., all must be secured.

Locking pins have to be in place and properly secured

Once properly locked and secured, zip ties need to be put onto keep the pins in place. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS RULE.

 

Thank You! BE SAFE OUT THERE!
