These Cefic/ECTA/FECC Guidelines offer best practice guidance regarding the safety of loading and unloading operations of road freight vehicles from a technical, behavioral and organizational point of view.
They replace the previous BBS Guidelines for the safe loading and unloading of road freight vehicles of March 2007.
The objective of these guidelines is to provide assistance in the prevention or elimination of unsafe conditions and situations during (un)loading operations by promoting best practice, recognizing the need for interaction between the different parties involved.
The scope of these guidelines includes the safe loading and unloading of chemical products by operators and drivers at production sites, storage terminals, warehouses and customers. They cover the loading and unloading of liquid bulk, dry bulk as well as packed goods.
