Load Restraint (Light Commercial)

How does the Load Restraint in your ute or company vehicle comply?

Under the new C&E Legislation, you need to ensure that you and/or your employees, drivers and sub-contractors (anyone who drives a company vehicle) is trained using the correct load restraint techniques and are not overloading vehicles as penalties can apply to all accountable parties.
