Putting The Brakes On Wheel Loss

hgv wheels

Despite advances in modern technology, the fundamental issue of wheel detachment continues to be a major concern for the commercial vehicle industry.

When a wheel becomes detached from a moving bus, coach, truck, or trailer, it can accelerate to 150 km/h. This has been likened by academics to a bouncing bomb, as the vehicle wheel soars to a height of up to 50 m before dropping and potentially colliding with other road users at an equivalent force of around ten tonnes.

Lloyd Morgan Group has been helping companies avoid wheel loss through its informative “understanding wheel loss prevention” training courses and from suppling businesses with a variety of wheel safety tools and products.

Understanding Wheel Loss Prevention & Security Good Practice Training Course

This 1-day course (onsite) is designed to help staff understand the reasons of why wheel loss occurs. Giving them a more robust understanding of the importance of wheel loss prevention and the good practice measures to ensure the risks are minimised.

It covers all popular wheel fixings and types on HGV and PCV vehicles and provides information on what to look for whether doing a walk around check or a wheel replacement.
