Load restraint at its worst!
Our NHVR team were assisting Victoria Police down in Mildura when they identified that this operator was using indirect restraint (a clamping force) for a load weighing just over 20 tonnes.
Not to mention, they were only using 4 straps to secure the load, when it required 34 straps!
This type of restraint is really problematic with the type of load and weight and the operator should have been using direct restraint (attaching to the vehicle) with chains.
