aide automotive have seen more an more companies review the Pallet Truck Restrainer Lee Lock in the last few months, with the ideal time to fit the lock at a trailer build many companies use a body builder to add the Pallet Truck Lock to a trailer or rigid truck.

A DVSA spokesman says: “The DVSA has not relaxed its approach to load security in curtain-sided vehicles. We have reviewed our current approach to EN 12642-XL rated vehicles and, after further consultation with the trade and experts at the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), changed our policy to better represent the risk presented by these vehicles.

“XL-rated vehicles are manufactured to a higher standard than normal trailers and, when positively loaded, provide sufficient security to meet the [Department for Transport] requirements.”

An unsecured Pallet Truck is an Unsecured Load! Prevent load damage, Curtain side load spills, Trailer Curtain Rips and employer injury with a Pallet Truck Lock like Lee Lock.

Curtainsiders without EN 12642-XL must still use internal restraint to comply with Safety of Loads on Vehicles.

Lee Lock Secures A Load As VOSA makes load security a top issue! Load security is one of the top issues when Paul Walker, VOSA’s Industry Liaison Manager, talks to Operators and Drivers across the country.

Paul says: ”During my meetings with the road haulage sector I am often asked about load safety. I always underline the importance of the driver walk around check to ensure that the load is safe and secure. If there are any doubts, you should not drive the vehicle until you are satisfied that it is safe.” “We want hauliers to go safely about their business without interruption. But if you are stopped by VOSA enforcement officers and there are concerns about load security then we will take robust action.” “Unsafe loads are a risk to all road users, so I would strongly urge operators and drivers to make time for the driver walk around check.” Make sure your load is safe All drivers of goods carrying commercial vehicles have a legal responsibility to ensure the load is secure to the vehicle. As part of the driver daily walk round check the load security should be checked as a matter of course. Even when a driver collects a pre-loaded vehicle they are responsible for making sure the load is secure. Ask yourself if: · the load can slide or topple forward or back? · the load can slide or topple off the side? · the load is unstable? · the load securing equipment is in good condition? · there is anything loose that might fall off the load or vehicle? · the load security or stability presents an immediate risk of injury? If the answer to any of these questions is yes or you have any doubt, then reconsider the securing of the load to the vehicle. These are the type of questions VOSA enforcement officers will ask themselves when assessing the load security of your vehicle. So for those that carry a Pallet Truck the need to secure it professionally has never been more prevalent.

Pallet Truck Damage

June 6th, 2010 No comments

Lee Lock is a product designed to stop damage to trucks and cargo.
Recently Norbert Dentressangle have started to specify the Lee Lock on all new trailers, this has resulted in orders totaling 84 Lee Locks from Bevan Motor Group and Montracon Ltd.
Lee Lock will stop any potential damage to curtain sides, in transit cargo and any potential employee injuries.
The common way to hold a pallet truck is to throw an old tyre into the back of a trailer, lifting a heavy truck into a tyre could result in back injury or strained muscle.
Other inadequate solutions are to turn the truck on its side, this again is not ideal as the truck is not secure and could leak oil.
Lee Lock is now the ideal Health & Safety solution for storing a Pallet Truck, easy to install and a relatively low cost Lee Lock is the Health & Safety product for a Pallet Truck.
