FLTA Safety Conference 2004

United Kingdom, Warwick - 22 September 2004
The Fork Lift Truck Association has announced details of its second annual Safety Conference.

Building on the success of the inaugural event which attracted more than 200 delegates, this year's Conference will offer practical solutions to practical problems. Aimed directly at meeting the need of the end users, the event's content will be up to date, concise, relevant... and immediately applicable to everyday work situations.

The main aims of the Conference will be to:
* help end users operator fork lift trucks more safely and efficiently
* highlight current safety issues and recommend best practice
* help users meet and understand legal obligations
*provide a basis for improved training
* highlight key issues of concern within the industry

Packed with high-quality content and presented by authoritative speakers, the content of the 2004 Conference will, once again, reflect the interests and concerns of the FLTA Safe User Group whose members are a representative cross section of British industry.

Among the topics already confirmed are:

*New Rules for the Use of Working Platforms
*Working Safely with Electric Trucks
CMP Batteries will discuss the safety issues relating to the safe use of electric trucks, including the use of battery charging facilities. They will also review likely advances in the use of electric power.
*Working Safely with LPG Trucks
Calor Gas will discuss the safety issues relating to the safe use of LPG powered trucks, including the safe storage and handling of gas. They will also review likely advances in the use of LPG.
*Reversing Safety. In their recent survey on Common Accidents on Lift Trucks the HSE identified that 47% of accidents concerned people being struck by moving trucks. Some 523 serious accidents have been investigated in this category, including 15 fatalities. 80% of these accidents involved counterbalance trucks with reversing being a significant factor. Brigade Electronics will review the issues relating to reversing accidents and provide an insight into the ways in which the risks can be minimised.

As before, the availability of tickets will be limited so organisers advise potential delegates to book as quickly as possible.
