General Tie-Down Safety and Inspection

The following is designed to provide information on the proper use of tie-downs to secure cargo on trucks and trailers. Improper tie-down can result in cargo shifting or falling during transport, which can cause property damage, injury, or death.

Proper Tie-Down Procedures

The following are some basic tie-down procedures that should be followed:

  • Use the correct type of tie-down for the load.
  • Use enough tie-downs to secure the load.
  • Tie the tie-downs down securely.
  • Tie the tie-downs in a way that prevents them from coming loose.
  • Check the tie-downs periodically to make sure they are secure.

There are many different types of tie-downs available, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Some of the most common types of tie-downs include:

  • Ratchet straps: Ratchet straps are easy to use and can be adjusted quickly. However, they can be damaged if they are not used properly.
  • Net straps: Net straps are a good choice for securing loose items. They are also relatively easy to use.
  • Chain straps: Chain straps are strong and durable, but they can be difficult to use and adjust.
  • Wire rope: Wire rope is very strong, but it can be difficult to tie and untie.

The amount of tie-downs needed to secure a load will vary depending on the weight and size of the load, as well as the type of vehicle being used. As a general rule, you should use at least two tie-downs for each corner of the load. You may need to use more tie-downs if the load is heavy or bulky.

Strap Strength

The tie-downs used to secure a load must be strong enough to support the weight of the load. The tie-down strength should be listed on the tie-down label.

Tie-Down Placement & Security

The tie-downs should be placed in a way that distributes the load evenly. The tie-downs should also be placed in a way that prevents the load from shifting or falling during transport.

The tie-downs should be tied down securely. The tie-downs should not be able to come loose during transport.

Tie-Down Inspection

The tie-downs should be inspected periodically to make sure they are secure. The tie-downs should also be inspected after any impact, such as a collision or a pothole. By following the tie-down procedures outlined here, you can help to ensure the safety of your load and the people around you.
