FLTA announces theme for 10th annual National Fork Truck Safety Conference
With the world in a constant state of change, it’s important to ensure that fork truck employers are prepared for what lies ahead, according to the Fork Lift Truck Association, announcing the theme for the 2017 National Fork Truck Safety Conference.
The award-winning event, which is sponsored by Jungheinrich, has been designed to give delegates the practical and invaluable advice they need to adapt to changes in the workplace.
Peter Harvey MBE, FLTA Chief Executive, says: “The Safety Conference has become one of the most important events on the industry calendar, so we do everything we can to address the most pressing issues that our delegates are facing year-on-year.
“The landscape, for many managers and supervisors, is one of change. They’re being expected to work leaner and that can result in corner cutting. But this can come at a high cost. With accidents and prosecutions on the rise, this conference will deliver the information, strategies and solutions to achieve their goals, while keeping safety standards high.”
The CPD-accredited conference will examine the subject of change from a variety of angles: from high staff turnover and changing processes to lower training budgets and reduced employee morale.
The event will take place on Wednesday 20th September at the Heart of England Conference and Events Centre in Coventry and will include:
Keynote address from the HSE
HSE Head of Operational Strategy Philip White will be on hand to deliver this year’s keynote address. He’ll give insight into HSE plans for the year ahead, as well as share vital information and statistics related to fork lift safety.
Secrets behind reducing accidents
This year’s event will be packed with short but highly informative talks delivered men and women who significantly changed safety on site… despite the challenges. A real highlight of this annual event, our speakers will share innovative-yet-affordable solutions to common problems.
Inspirational leadership presentation
This year’s special guest speaker is motorsports guru Mark Gallagher, who will look at the business of safety. Mark, who is co-owner of Status Grand Prix and provides Formula One commentary on BBC 5 Live, previously worked for Red Bull Racing, Jordan Grand Prix, Jaguar Racing, and ran Cosworth’s F1 engine business.
