Cargo Securement Best Practices



The Petroleum Services Association of Canada (PSAC) , the Canadian Association of Oilwell Drilling Contractors (CAODC)  in co-operation with the transportation authorities in Alberta, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan, together with industry, have developed this Best Practice to address compliance with the North American Cargo Securement Standard (the “Standard”) introduced in January 2005.

This Best Practice is specific to the transportation of equipment used in Canada’s oil and gas industry, and has been designed to meet or exceed the requirements of the Standard.  The Best Practice is intended as a compliment to the Standard and not a replacement for it.

PSAC Core and Introductory Members have access to the Standard in the Members Only area of the PSAC website. For more information, please email
