The FISA Haulage Working Group and Timber Transport Forum have created a poster to illustrate the minimum strapping requirements for typical loads on timber lorries.
It is available here to download as an A2 poster, A3 poster and A5 double sided flyer.
Posters are being sent out to mills in the next weeks to be displayed at weighbridges and other suitable places where they will be seen - please look out for them.
The flyer can be handed out to the drivers of timber lorries. Please impress upon drivers that presenting loads of timber without the correct strapping is not an option.
Please also ensure that there are designated and safe de-strapping areas for drivers.
Further information on safe loading of roundwood can be found in the Road Haulage of Round Timber Code of Practice 4th Edition which can be downloaded from https://timbertransportforum.org.uk/work/good-practice
