Unsecured or inadequately secured loads pose a safety risk and could cause injury and even death. Unsecured or inadequately secured loads can shift when a vehicle is in motion and may cause:
     • Loss of control of vehicle.
     • Objects to fall on or hit people.
     • Road obstruction or collision where a driver is required to swerve to avoid fallen items.
     • Spillages that may cause vehicles to lose control.
     • Failure to secure loads properly may also result in financial losses due to damaged goods and vehicles, lost working time, clean-up costs and possible legal costs.
