LOAD SECUREMENT/TRANSPORT RIGGING
The training along with the lifting equipment you need to put safety first as you move your inventory and protect your operation.
INDIRECT TIEDOWN (Insert Image)
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 TIEDOWN (Insert Image)
Tiedowns with 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.
DETERMINING HOW MANY TIEDOWNS YOU NEED
How much does the cargo weigh? The combined working load limit (WLL) of the securement system must be at least one-half the weight of the cargo.
How strong are the Tiedowns? If your Tiedowns are not marked with the WLL, you must use the tables in 49 CFR 393.108. (Insert Table)
Is the cargo prevented from moving forward by a headboard, blocking, or other secured cargo? If yes, use at least 1 Tiedown for every 10ft of cargo, or part thereof. If no, you may need an extra strap. See below: Insert: "IF THE CARGO IS/USE AT LEAST" TABLE
