Quality audits for FLTA members announced

1 min read

Quality audits are to be conducted on manufacturers and dealerships that comprise a Fork Lift Truck Association (FLTA) membership, it has been announced.

Lee Medway (pictured), quality manager at the FLTA, will visit every member and conduct individual on-site audits to ensure compliance across more than 100 criteria.

In return, examples of innovative measures from members will be shared with firms. They will also get a certificate and compliance logo to go alongside the Code of Practice that must be displayed in their premises.

FLTA chief Peter Harvey said: “For the many tens of thousands of truck users and operators, this audit procedure will deliver genuine peace of mind.

“Whether you buy, rent or obtain service from an FLTA member you have the assurance of: a fair and approved contract; comprehensive public and product liability insurance; impressive environmental policies; equal opportunities procedures and a great deal more.”

The support comes at a time when courts have begun using new sentencing guidelines introduced in February last year.

Harvey added: “In summary the introduction of the Quality Audit ensures FLTA members adhere to the highest standards, thereby avoiding the risk of any weak link in your chain of traceability and accountability.”
