Record year for lorry loader training

3 Oct 14 An industry training scheme for operators of lorry-mounted loader cranes has seen demand rise 18% this year to record heights.

The Association of Lorry Loader Manufacturers & Importers (ALLMI) said the growth in demand for its approved courses comes on the back of a strong increase in 20-13 as well

ALLMI CEO Tom Wakefield said: “Last year was a big success for the ALLMI scheme, so we’re delighted to take yet another significant step forward in terms of further establishing ALLMI training as the UK’s leading course for lorry loaders.  We’re finding that companies and sites are actively looking for operators holding the ALLMI card, as they recognise the quality of the training and assessment involved in obtaining accreditation.”

ALLMI operator training is the only lorry loader scheme to be both approved by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) and recognised by the UK Contractors Group (UKCG), as well as being compliant with the requirements of BS7121 Part 4. 

ALLMI chairman Mark Rigby added: “ALLMI delivers the only lorry loader programme which is written by the industry, for the industry.  The credibility and recognition of the scheme is a testament to the efforts and expertise of the numerous members and training providers involved in its continual development via our various working groups and committees.  This industry focus and knowledge results in course content of the highest possible standard which, combined with the provision of ongoing specialist technical support for all instructors and operators carrying the ALLMI card, leads to an abundance of commercial and safety related benefits, as well as peace of mind, for employers with ALLMI accredited staff.”
