Vehicle Safe Loading & Strapping with CPC

Lost and unsafe loads continue to cause significant health and safety issues within the transport and logistics industry. Consequences of associated incidents can cause disruption to road networks and pose serious risk to drivers, associated workers and pedestrians. Training and education can substantially help reduce such incidents. NLT take pride in providing quality training and do so by talking with our customers to identify their needs and requirements. We also continually monitor industry trends and accident statistics. This enables us to target areas of specific concern, or those which pose the greatest risks to safety and health.

Our 1/2 day ‘Vehicle Safe Loading & Strapping’ course aimed at drivers of light commercial vehicles is proving to be extremely successful and has been acknowledged by National Highways. Working with Balfour Beatty, Supply Chain Safety Leadership Group, Highways Safety Hub (Raising the Bar 36 – Lost Loads) we have helped educate employees and reduce incidents. The course has been delivered Nationwide and its popularity is growing.

Due to increasing demand we have decided to design a full day version of the course offering 7hrs CPC. It has given us an opportunity to liaise with the Suffolk Police Commercial Vehicle Unit, (CVU). They police the strategic road network and the many goods vehicles travelling to and from the Port of Felixstowe. The unit is attached to the Roads and Armed Policing Team (RAPT), and consists of two police officers. They are also commercial vehicle enforcement officers. The communications are proving to be extremely beneficial. Information gained will help us ensure we include and pass on the most current and relative information for drivers.

The new course ‘Vehicle Safe Loading & Strapping, Route Planning and Vulnerable Road Users’ includes theory and practical sessions has been approved by DVSA is now available for delivery.
