Course Length – Half Day

Course Description

Ensuring cargo is properly secured is a critical aspect of safely operating a commercial vehicle.  This half-day training session is designed to review the cargo securement requirements found in the National Safety Code (NSC) Standard 10.  Topics covered include securement of general freight, common specific commodities such as dressed lumber, steel coils, and light/heavy vehicles, as well as how to determine when tiedowns are deemed defective.

Why this is important

Cargo transported on the highway must be secure. Improper securement can affect the stability of a vehicle, it can allow cargo to be lost from a vehicle and it can result in charges to the driver and/or carrier. The regulations relating to cargo securement list very specific requirements for the type, the location and the strength of tiedowns normally used to secure cargo onto a flat deck trailer.

Course is suitable for:

Drivers, managers, trainers and operations personnel will understand the rules and will learn about the methods and systems that must be in place to stay compliant.
