The DVSA have just published their new load securing guidance after months of preparation.
Found at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/securing-loads-on-hgvs-and-goods-vehicles, the new and comprehensive documentation promises to improve on previous guidance and is conveniently structured for ease of navigation and understanding.
It must be noted that the law has not changed and the core guidance content of the new guidance closely matches that of the previous version; however, it has been written for the benefit of consignors and operators and contains practical solutions that can be implemented with ease.
A supporting YouTube video is also available at https://youtu.be/PoVXOJXbMe4
Don-Bur was proud to be involved in the drafting process and also produced the imagery to support the guidance.
