Long awaited improvements in the abnormal loads industry could be on the cards after a working group was established to develop a code of practice.

The RHA said the Abnormal Loads Cross Industry Forum and working group intends to look at all aspects of the sector, including the movement notification procedures, the response of police and structure owners, compliance and enforcement in an effort to drive efficiencies and improve the effectiveness of the industry.

It said everyone in the industry has the opportunity to help develop and influence its review, with the intention of ultimately creating a code of practice.

Should you wish to get involved, or have any issues that you want to be included in the review process you are asked to contact Ray Engley: r.engley@rha.uk.net for further information.
