FLTA search is on for Safety Champion
20 June 2016
Materials handling specialist Briggs Equipment is once again helping promote workplace transport safety by sponsoring the Fork Lift Truck Association (FLTA) 2016 ‘Safety Champion' Award.
The annual honour, now in its second year, acknowledges individuals who have committed to improving safety on site – for those working on or alongside fork lift trucks.
Head of Safety Health Environment and Quality at Briggs Equipment, Ken Stoll, said: “We are really pleased to once again support such a worthwhile endeavour. As an organisation dedicated to safety, we recognise the importance of recognising and rewarding those outstanding men and women who are making a real difference in their workplaces by going the extra mile.”
Chief Executive of the FLTA, Peter Harvey MBE, said: “We would like to thank Briggs Equipment for once again stepping forward to support this initiative.
“Safe working is crucial to the materials handling industry and, as such, it’s vital that we recognise those individuals who – even when faced with resistance to change – make lasting and effective improvements to site safety.”
Previously held as part of Safetember - the FLTA's month-long September safety campaign - this year, the National Fork Lift Safety Conference has been moved forward to Wednesday June 29th. Boasting its best line-up to date, this year's Conference is not one to be missed. The event not only features cost-effective, real-life case studies from our highly commended Safe Site companies, but also presentations from industry leaders, special guest speakers, a safety panel Q&A, and more. To avoid disappointment, book your ticket today!
The Safety Champion Award is open to individuals from companies of all shapes and sizes, in all sectors. To enter, entrants must tell the FLTA, in 300 words or fewer, why they or the person you are nominating should be the FLTA Safety Champion 2016.
Entries are welcomed until 31st August 2016. Importantly, entrants can submit as many applications as they like. Further details, as well as information on last year’s winner, can be found online.
