Managing Abnormal Indivisible Loads – free toolkit and free course available

FORS has developed a new training course to equip FORS operators with the knowledge needed to ensure the safe transport of abnormal indivisible loads. The four-hour FORS Professional Managing Abnormal Indivisible Loads (AILs) course is offered free of charge to FORS members.

In addition to this new training course, a downloadable AIL toolkit is available and lists the full details of regulations in place to ensure safe transportation of AILs, the notification periods required for each vehicle and load type, vehicle dimension classifications, and best practice tips on how to successfully plan AIL movement.

Whilst transporting AILs is a specialist activity, downloading the free toolkit and attending this free course will assist FORS members in managing their operations. At Bronze, FORS requirement ‘O5 Specialist operations’ requires operators to conduct specialist operations safely and in accordance with the law to ensure that associated risks are managed to make sure drivers, passengers, and other road users are not endangered.

Paul Grafton, FORS Compliance and Training Officer, says “This course is designed to assist, support and make members aware of what is considered to be an abnormal load and what is considered to be an abnormal indivisible load (AIL), and includes information for loads permitted in normal operations and STGO regulations”.
