Audit Reveals FLTA Companies Work to “Demonstrably Higher Standards”

We are a FLTA-accredited company, and a recent audit has revealed that FLTA members can truly claim they offer their customers the best. 


Some great news for our customers. We were one of the first companies in the UK to become accredited by the Fork Lift Truck Association (FLTA) – and now they have revealed details of a comprehensive on-site Audit that demonstrates FLTA members work to “demonstrably higher standards” than non-compliant companies.


Tim Waples, Chief Executive of the FLTA explains: “There are many companies who can rent or sell you a forklift and each will tell you they’re the best. But few, if any, can back that up with solid evidence.


“Your local FLTA Member can. To gain and retain their membership, each must abide by a stringent Code of Practice and must successfully complete the FLTA Member Audit. That Code of Practice is evidence the member is competent to survey a site (taking the time to understand the application, safety requirements as well as future plans), offer expert advice and then specify the most appropriate equipment.   


“Underpinning that Code is the FLTA’s rigorous Member Audit. Developed specifically for the forklift truck industry, it is unlike many accreditations that use an online questionnaire (which is vulnerable to malpractice). Instead, an FLTA Quality Manager undertakes a physical on-site visit to inspect more than 100 criteria across all aspects of the member’s business, including safety and environmental procedures and best practice.  


“For the customer, the Audit is proof that FLTA members work to standards demonstrably higher than non-compliant companies and removes a potentially weak link in a company’s chain of traceability and accountability.”


We pride ourselves on our service and quality of products, so it is great to have that quality confirmed. For a top-quality service you can trust, just give us a call discuss your requirements.
