Load Restraint

Load Restraint

Do you run a business which provides vehicle loading services via forklift or loading area? Then you may responsible for the security and the stability of the load once it leaves your site.

Course Details

At TISC we offer training services to drivers and businesses in the area of safe and secure loading practices. Our half or one day course can be completed here at the Sutton Road Training Centre or we can come to you. Let us train your yard staff or drivers to recognise, manage and rectify unsafe loading practices.
