Load Securement is a critical safety factor on the nation’s highways. Federal and State Regulations require commercial drivers to use a minimum number of tiedowns to secure their loads. Just one strap or chain could be the difference between safety and disaster.

Load Securement – DOT Compliance educates Corporate Drivers in the rules, regulations, and safety of preparing to load a truck, loading equipment, and securing equipment.
