The Fork Lift Truck Association (FLTA) has made additional seats available for its annual safety conference after confirming a heavyweight roster of speakers for the event.
Highlights of the National Fork Lift Truck Safety Conference on 22 September include a presentation by HSE board member John Spanswick. Spanswick will emphasise how strategic improvements by management can save lives on the front line. He has a wealth of experience in the senior levels of the project management and construction industry.
FLTA CEO David Ellison says the conference will be packed with practical information for managers responsible for forklifts. "We'll also make it clear that the bigger picture - the strategies and priorities set by those at the top - make a huge difference to the risks faced by workers in the warehouse." "So if you want to get something done about forklift safety in your workplace, bring the boss," Ellison adds.
Other speakers at the conference sponsored by Calor will represent viewpoints from the materials handling and logistics industry, as well as legal and insurance perspectives.
Topics covered include strategic planning, site surveys, corporate manslaughter and operator assessment. For more information on the conference and its speakers, go to www.fork-truck.org.uk/safety-conference
