FLTA looking for double success at national Best Practice Awards

Inset: Peter Harvey

The Fork Lift Truck Association (FLTA) has been named as a finalist in two categories in the prestigious Trade Association Forum (TAF) Best Practice Awards 2015.

The nominations recognise the FLTA’s outstanding work in delivering two industry-leading events: the National Fork Truck Safety Conference and the FLTA Awards for Excellence.

The FLTA’s Annual Awards have received recognition in the Event of the Year category for its record-breaking 21st outing – held in February 2015 at the Telford International Centre.  As well as generating the most nominations and largest public vote to date, the event’s winners were revealed in front of its biggest audience ever.

Alongside this, the FLTA National Fork Truck Safety Conference, which broke attendance records, has been selected as a finalist in the Conference of the Year category, in recognition of its exceptional peer-to-peer learning programme.  The high-calibre event featured case studies from managers and supervisors who successfully improved their organisations’ safety records.

FLTA Chief Executive, Peter Harvey, explains: “Ahead of anything else, our primary objective has been and remains to be raising industry standards for the good of the 1,000,000 people in the UK whose work involves fork lift trucks.

“Events like these allow us to do just that.  While the Safety Conference lets us inform and motivate those responsible for making sites safer, our Awards allows us to recognise those pioneers raising standards across the industry.

“So we are always looking for ways to improve our events to ensure they are truly engaging and inspirational.”

The winners of the TAF 2015 Best Practice Awards will be announced on 9th July 2015 in London. To find out more about the event, visit: www.taforum.org/best-practice-awards-2015
