Load securing: Training according to VDI 2700
Unsecured or poorly secured loads are among the most frequent causes of accidents. In this training course on load securing according to VDI 2700, you will learn how to secure your load correctly and thus protect yourself and other road users. After this load securing training, you will always be safe on the road.
Who needs load securing training?
All employees who are responsible for load securing need training in load securing according to VDI 2700. In practice, these are the drivers and those who load the vehicle or supply the load, i.e. the shippers or warehouse and fleet managers. This is because only those who have a direct influence on the actual loading on site can implement the load securing measures, and this should be done jointly. This is stipulated in VDI Guideline 2700 Load Securing on Road Vehicles.
Why is load securing important?
Every load must be secured against tipping, rolling and sliding, regardless of whether it is light or heavy. The load must be stowed and secured in such a way as to prevent any risk to persons even during emergency stopping and evasive maneuvers. This is because any small object can become a projectile. A toolbox weighing 5 kg generates a mass force of approx. 500 kg in the event of full braking from 50 km/h. This is why the load securing is so important. This is why load securing is so crucial for trucks, trailers and other transport vehicles.
