||One of the key hazards within the transport sector is posed by loads shifting in transit and then falling from vehicles, causing injuries and/or fatalities. Between 2006 and 2007 HSE identified five deaths and over 216 major injuries resulting from objects falling onto people in the freight by road sector. A further 946 persons received injuries severe enough to require more than three days absence from work. The aim of this research was to explore load security issues, identifying causal and contributory factors to loads shifting.
