A loader securer is used to load and secure materials and items on trailers. It is estimated that more than 1,200 people a year are injured by loads that were not secured properly, while injuries can also occur during the loading process, including loaders and other personnel falling from the back of the lorry. Such accidents can cause injuries as well as result in the loss or damage of property.

Only through the proper use of a loader securer can your company be sure that goods will not be damaged and people will not be injured. As an employer, it is your responsibility to ensure the safety of a site. This means providing equipment that is well maintained, offering safety equipment to your employees, and it also means that you need to offer safety training to your employees.

Loader securer training initially gives delegates an understanding of health and safety laws, and how they fit into the process of providing a secure environment. It also teaches everything from required pre-use checks to the safe shutting down of the machinery at the end of a shift, and how to conduct routine and simple maintenance to ensure the ongoing safety of the machine.

Course Accreditation

At SB Skills Solutions Ltd we can tailor course content to meet the specific requirements for your business. We offer courses accredited by the following competence accreditation boards:

CPCS – The Construction Plant Competence Scheme is a widely recognised accreditation board that operates primarily in the construction industry. It has a range of courses, including STGO loader securer training and non-STGO courses. Successfully passing the course will result in the delegate also receiving a red competence card. We offer both A49 and A50 loader securer CPCS courses.  The A49/A50 loader securer course from CPCS will reward a red trained operator card on completion, enabling candidates to go on and undertake the relevant Level 2 Plant Operations NVQ to enable them to obtain a blue competence card.

NPORS – National Plant Operators Registration Scheme is a widely recognised accredited board and is an alternative to CPCS but is widely accepted on all major UK construction sites.  On successful completion of the course, delegates will receive a Red Competent Card which is valid for 2 years.  In that time delegates will be required to complete the relevant Level 2 Plant Operations NVQ in order to update their card to a Blue Competency Card.
