NHMTA Sponsors Second Load Securement Program

On May 9, NHMTA conducted the second of two load securement safety training programs for member companies at the White Mountain Community College in Littleton. The program focused on load securement and FMCSA regulatory updates.

Sixteen persons from seven member companies attended the program led by Trooper First-Class Kenneth Phoenix of New Hampshire State Police, Troop G, Commercial Vehicle Unit and Division Administrator Steve Piwowarski of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. The program consisted of a classroom session and an outdoor exercise where attendees had to identify “problems” of load securement. Then, with TFC. Phoenix officiating, the group identified and shortly thereafter reviewed the problem areas on the demonstration vehicle that had been set up before the class.

World Trading Company (WTC), a division of Sabbow products, graciously supplied the demonstration vehicle, a flatbed with three different loads, for use during the outdoor portion of the exercise.

Following the outdoor exercise, Steve Piwowarski gave a presentation about the latest regulatory changes at FMCSA and the latest update on electric logging devices (ELDs). As use of ELDs becomes effective this coming December, NHMTA will be sponsoring additional programs focusing on the use and regulation of these devices.

NHMTA wants to thank Ray Billings and Ray Popsie of Phoenix Concrete, and Tim Fisher and Scott Jewell of WTC for their cooperation and assistance in providing the demonstration vehicle and the setup of “problems” used during these two programs. We also wish to thank Melanie Robbins and White Mountain Community College, TFC. Kip Phoenix of NHSP Troop G, and Steve Piwoarski of FMCSA, for their cooperation and assistance in conducting these two valuable programs.
