Loading Trusses

The Truss Fabricator will either be responsible for in-house haulage or for selecting a competent Haulier. In either case he shall ensure that trailers suitably adapted for the safe delivery of trussed rafters are used.

The Truss Fabricator will be responsible for providing the Contractor with details of the weight, physical dimensions, configuration and layout of the trusses to be delivered in advance of delivery. Details concerning weights of bundles of trusses and their banding will be provided by the Truss Fabricator at time of delivery.

For TRA members only a specimen risk assessment for the loading of vehicles is available from the TRA ‘Members Only’ area of this site
