Trailer Safety   TSW Logo - Date.png
Recognizing that many SPF contractors use trailer-mounted rigs, SPFA has partnered with The National Association of Trailer Manufacturers (NATM) for its annual safety initiative National Trailer Safety Week (TSW) held on June 4-10, 2023. This trailer safety effort aims to close the gap of communication between trailer manufacturers, dealers, and end-users of trailers to make towing safer and raise awareness of safe towing practices.

End-users are vastly undereducated on the proper use of trailers; they recognize they would not purchase a car without seatbelts but do not understand that purchasing a trailer without key safety features can be just as dangerous. It is crucial to disseminate essential how-to information regarding proper towing, loading, and maintenance to reach the broad audience of trailer users across the nation. Trailer Safety Week aims to provide this education to end users through connections with trailer dealers, manufacturers, suppliers, law enforcement and traffic safety groups. 
Supporting this traffic safety effort is easy! Everyone is encouraged to share with their audiences so that any trailer user can instantly access trailer safety and maintenance information necessary for safe towing and ultimately safer roadways. This website is free, easily accessible, mobile friendly and houses information including hitching, loading, maintenance, cargo securement, tires, driving tips, ensuring the right vehicle combination, brakes and the importance of purchasing NATM compliant trailers.
Safe trailering practices save lives, and with millions of trailers—used by businesses, local governments, and individuals—traversing the nation’s roadways every day, it is crucial to ensure that trailers are being towed safely for the sake of everyone on the roads.

SPFA presented aTrailer Safety webinar on June 8th from 4:00-5:00 PM.   For a limited time, a on-demand recording of the webinar is free for non-members.   The recorded webinar will be permanently accessible to all SPFA members on the Member-Only Resources page.
