Load Restraint Advice, Procedures and Systems 

Loadsafe can provide practical advice and solutions for all of your load restraint operational, safety and legal obligations.

Loadsafe has over 25 years’ experience in heavy vehicle engineering and loading.  We can provide:

  • Load Restraint advice

  • Load Restraint procedures developed specifically for your operations

  • Load Restraint systems which are designed specifically to minimise risk

  • Certification of Load Restraint procedures under National Heavy Vehicle Law

  • Minimum specifications for Load Restraint equipment

  • Minimum specifications for vehicles, vehicle bodies and attachments


Traditional load restraint systems utilise tie-down methods which require diligent loaders and operators to apply appropriate skills to ensure the ongoing safety of every load.

Loadsafe is continuously developing innovative new systems of load restraint which reduce dependence on operator diligence and skill in order to minimise risk in transport operations.


These systems include:

  • appropriate packaging and unitisation of products for safe transport throughout the distribution chain.

  • use of fixed or movable blocking structures on vehicle bodies so that operators do not have to use tie-down straps or chains.

  • use of secondary containment systems to reduce risk if packaging or unitisation is inadequate.


Loadsafe has over 20 years’ experience in designing specialised vehicle bodies which have been effective in minimising risk and improving productivity for various clients. Please refer to Vehicle Engineering for more information on Loadsafe’s specialised vehicle bodies.
