Visit the Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators’ (CCMTA) to view cargo securement standards.
Ensure the load and all equipment/tools are properly secured.
Cargo must be secured on or within a vehicle. Shovels, blocks, webbing, chains, spare tires, brooms, forklifts, pallet jacks, winches, ratchets, etc., all must be secured. In an enclosed trailer, large or heavy loads may need additional securement to safely secure the load.
Bungee cords and tarp straps must not be used as the main securement for loads or equipment.
Inspect tie-downs for wear and damage.
Ensure the load is always properly contained and secured so that it will not leak, spill, blow off, fall from, fall through or shift.
