Section 189 Securing equipment and materials

This section applies to both equipment and materials that may endanger a worker because of dislodgment, movement, spillage or damage. Bags, containers, bundles, etc. stored in tiers must be stacked, blocked, interlocked and limited in height to prevent sliding or collapse. Loads must be secured by tie-downs, bulkheads, or blocking. Rolling equipment, when parked, should have wheels chocked to prevent unintentional movement.
