<b>Load Security by Lashing Down</b> General cargoes must be secured so that (boxes, containers, etc.) do not slip in rough conditions and thus creates reliable stability for the ship. One way of securing the load is to secure it by lashing it down using tension belts. These are lashed over the load to be secured and with tension (e.g. ratchet). This is to be checked for a certain lashing force, which belongs to both the political decisions of the ship when rolling, tamping and superimposed relationships, as well as from the material pairings of the standing area (also e.g. wooden box on steel floor or box on steel floor with the lying anti-slip mat).
