VOSA Officers undertake load security training!

Load Security Training
 
Following a lengthy consultation with the FTA, RHA and HSE, VOSA’s much anticipated load security training courses for examiners are now underway, and will continue until the end of March this year. Examiners in all Areas are currently being trained in the many varied aspects of load security and the relevant processes in order to improve compliance.
 
The training is being held at VOSA premises and consists of comprehensive theory sessions followed by practical exercises in ‘live’ road check environments. It is envisaged that this format will inform VOSA examiners appropriately so that enforcement can be undertaken in a robust but pragmatic way. From the courses that have been carried out so far, feedback from attendees has been very positive, indicating a high level of that understanding and enthusiasm for the subject.
 
More information on load security can be found on the HSE website. http://www.hse.gov.uk/logistics/load-security.htm
