FLTA National Fork Lift Safety Convention 2018

Coventry, UK: The Fork Lift Truck Association’s National Fork Lift Safety Convention takes place on Wednesday 3 October 2018 at the Heart of England Conference and Events Centre, Coventry.

The FLTA points out that between April and September 2017, four people were killed in accidents involving forklift trucks. Around 1,300 people a year continue to be seriously injured in forklift truck accidents and – worryingly – there is no significant evidence of improvement in recent years.

The event, sponsored by Toyota Materials Handing UK and produced in association with SHD Logistics, will feature industry insights, real-life case histories, motivational speakers, and expert Q&As.

Tickets cost £180, £130 for FLTA Members and Safe User Group.
