Positioning of Loads on TrucksWhen loading trucks, for standard or normal cargo, place the items on the truckin the reverse order of removal, i.e. first off, should be the last on.The first items loaded should be placed hard against the headboard of thetrailer, so that in the event of heavy braking, they cannot slide forward gainingmomentum. This is particularly important when loading bundles of tubulars,which can turn into missiles under heavy breaking.cargo hard against trailer headboardcargo hard against trailer headboard :goodWhen transporting tubulars, when each bundle is landed, the slings should belaid along the length of the bundle to prevent them being crushed by the nextbundle. Where possible, position the slings where they can be reached fromground level, but ensure they cannot fall and drag along the ground (lash withsoft rope where necessary). This makes it easier for offloading at the supplierâ€™syard. Samson posts (stanchions or bolsters) should be in place along the sides ofthe trailer and wedges should be used where necessary to stabilise the load.no trailer headboard :badWARNING :never use a trailerthat doesnâ€™thave a robustheadboard.woodenheadboardsare acceptable,but steel orsteel coveredheadboardsare preferred73
