FLTA launches National Fork Lift Safety Conference app

Delegates attending the National Fork Lift Safety Conference 2016 (29th June, Heart of England Conference Centre, near Coventry) will have an unmissable opportunity to network with materials handling experts and peers alike, thanks to a new app developed by the Fork Lift Truck Association (FLTA).

The annual safety conference, which is sponsored by Jungheinrich, is Europe’s only event entirely dedicated to improving the safety of those working on or around fork lift trucks.

The event provides delegates with professional advice and practical guidance on how to improve fork lift truck safety from the industry’s leading experts, including the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and the FLTA.

Available now through Google Play and Apple Stores, the National Fork Truck Safety Conference App is a new addition to this already award-winning event.

FLTA Chief Executive Peter Harvey MBE explained the thinking behind this development: “We are always looking for new and effective ways to inform, engage and inspire those attending as our ultimate aim is to help those using forklift trucks to make their sites safer.

“Our peer-to-peer learning sessions, introduced in 2014, for example, have become a firm favourite with delegates.  They’re delivered by those who have led safety on site, transforming it successfully, despite common obstacles.

“This year we have more than ever before, delivered by Heineken, Mitsubishi Electric, The Bury Black Pudding Company and Brett’s Landscaping and Building Products.

“With this new app, our delegates will be able to do more than simply find out about our speakers and their sessions. They’ll have the opportunity to network with them via social media, including LinkedIn and Twitter.
“They’ll also be able to connect with others attending the event, allowing for open, frank discussions on the subject of safety, as well as seeking advice on challenges affecting their own operations.”

Designed for use with Apple and Android devices, the app also provides users with the event programme and session summaries and signposts them to the wide range of resources available through the FLTA and its members.

Peter added: “Importantly, access to all of these resources, and more, is available leading up to, at and following the event.  So download your copy today.  Just search for ‘FLTA’ in Google Play or Apple stores…”

A few tickets still remain for the materials handling industry’s only safety event dedicated solely to fork lift truck operations.  Tickets are priced at £170 plus VAT for non-members and £120 plus VAT for members of the FLTA and its Safe User Group.
