Wheel Fixing Re-torque Procedure

£35.00

Lost Wheels Cost Lives!

Wheel security is paramount to any vehicle operator and is a special concern of the DVSA and the Traffic Commissioners.

An operator of HGVs or PSVs must be able to demonstrate that when a wheel has been removed, it has been re-fitted correctly and to the correct tightness (the correct torque). Also, that it has been rechecked to ensure it has remained secure.

It is imperative that all operators have a recognised wheel security procedure and also a documented record of all wheel removals and refitting.

Lost Wheels Cost Lives!

Wheel security is paramount to any vehicle operator and is a special concern of the DVSA and the Traffic Commissioners.

An operator of HGVs or PSVs must be able to demonstrate that when a wheel has been removed, it has been re-fitted correctly and to the correct tightness (the correct torque). Also, that it has been rechecked to ensure it has remained secure.

It is imperative that all operators have a recognised wheel security procedure and also a documented record of all wheel removals and refitting.

This written process provides the operator with why, when and how to re-torque a wheel and provides a template “Wheel Retorque / Fixing Register” form to document the work done.

This easy process can save lives and save your operator’s licence.
