Guide To Best Practice Load Restraint, Tyre Management

Tech guru Adam Ritzinger unpacks HVIA’s two new training courses, explains their relevance under Chain of Responsibility, and highlights the safety case for getting it right

Having effective training that equips staff with the right knowledge and skillsets is the foundation of every safe work practice.

This is the premise of HVIA’s ‘Safety Through Education’ project, funded by the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator’s Heavy Vehicle Safety Initiative, supported by the Australian Government.

The project has delivered two comprehensive online training courses covering best practice for two safety critical areas for heavy vehicle operations – load restraint and tyre management.

Tyre management and load restraint are critically important under CoR laws and general safety

The aim was to transform the volumes of written guidance information into an accessible, immersive, and practical online format. While good quality information is readily available, it is often widely scattered, which leads to knowledge gaps in the industry.

This edition of ‘The Tech’s Files’ unpacks each of the two new training courses, explains their relevance under Chain of Responsibility, and highlights the safety case for getting it right.
