ALLMI operator cards are now added to UKCG’s list of accepted record schemes.  

The UKCG is the primary association for major contractors operating in the UK and its members account for £33bn worth of construction turnover - a third of UK construction total output.  

UKCG health & safety advisor David Lambert said: “The UKCG is pleased to include the ALLMI Lorry Loader Training Scheme as a recognised scheme under its accepted record schemes.  The UKCG recognises that the ALLMI scheme is used across the UK by a wide range of suppliers and contractors, providing a defined level of training for those using lorry loaders on UKCG sites.”

ALLMI CEO Tom Wakefield added: “We’re extremely pleased with the UKCG’s decision to recognise the ALLMI card, which we believe reflects the quality of ALLMI training and its credibility within the industry.  The uptake of the ALLMI scheme has increased significantly over recent years and the news that our training will now reach even further into the construction sector was gratefully received by our members, as they all share a passion to see standards continually raised in relation to the safe use of lorry loaders.”
