Abstract The objective of this study was to establish good practice for securing loads on curtain-sided trucks across various industry sectors and provide practical guidance on load restraint to minimise the risks to safety and health of all persons working on and around curtain-sided vehicles. Good practices are defined as systems of work that are the most practical, that involve the least risks of loads becoming unstable or falling, and least risk to the operator/driver, and that are practicable. The report reviews existing legislation and guidance in the United Kingdom, Europe, North America and Australasia, together with current practice across a cross-section of United Kingdom industry, and assesses the mechanics of load shift and what systems of load securing are most effective in restraining loads.
