HRIA launches online Load Restraint Training

The HRIA recently announced the launch of it’s latest online Load Restraint course. This course builds on from the HRIA Chain of Responsibility online awareness courses.

Transportation of equipment on heavy and light vehicles is one of the highest risk activities for the hire industry. The HRIA is committed to minimising the risk of transport activities in our industry and as a result, has developed online Load Restraint Training.

There are 4 online training modules along with supporting reference documents

  1. Load Restraint Fundamentals
  2. Earthmoving Equipment | Direct Restraint
  3. Compaction Equipment | Direct Restraint
  4. Access Equipment | Direct Restraint


Participants have the option of completing the certificate course, which includes all 4 modules, and on completion receive the HRIA Load Restraint Certificate. Alternatively, individual modules can be completed (no certificate awarded).

The Online Load Restraint Training has been designed to achieve multiple goals of safer drivers and vehicles plus safer road use, through the improved restraint of mobile plant. For a limited time, the course fees have been waived.

To assist those using light vehicles to transport equipment, we have a number of Light Vehicle Load Restraint posters available for download.
