Load Securement - Training, Expertise and Equipment

One of the biggest vulnerabilities to your operation as projects and busyness increase is your standards for load securement. With the winter season ending and the lifting of road restrictions and increase in demand on your operation, your crews will be more active with equipment and materials.

At Olsen Chain and Cable, we can help you make the right choices for securing the equipment and materials that your crews are hauling.

We provide the training and the equipment you need to put safety first as you transport equipment and materials for your operation. 



Indirect Tiedowns are tiedowns that pass over or through the cargo, with both ends attached to opposite sides of the vehicle. If using, you can count the full value (100%) of the WLL for those tiedowns.





Direct Tiedowns have one end attached to an anchor point on the vehicle and the other end attached to the cargo, or with both ends attached to the same side of the vehicle. If using, you can only count one-half (50%) of the WLL for those Tiedowns.
