Places Filling Up for Membership Meeting
2019 Membership Meeting
There is just over a week left until ALLMI's annual membership meetings take place on Thursday, 17th October at the award-winning Belfry Hotel & Resort in Sutton Coldfield. If you haven't booked yet, there is still time to confirm your place. Bookings will close at the end of this week.
Delegates from all corners of the lorry loader industry will be in attendance, including manufacturers / importers, service companies, fleet owners, ancillary equipment suppliers and site operators. Providing a lively agenda of items, meetings will include updates from ALLMI Chairman, Mark Rigby, and Operators Forum Chairman, Steve Frazer-Brown, as well as activity reports from CEO, Tom Wakefield, and Technical Manager, Keith Silvester. In addition, we are delighted to have guest speaker, David Spillett, Head of Safety, Health & Environment at the Energy Networks Association, talking to us about their "Look, Out, Look Up" campaign, which concerns the risks involved with working near overhead power lines. There will also be an opportunity for delegates to network over an excellent lunch provided by the Belfry Hotel.
So please do come along to the ALLMI membership meetings to meet like-minded peers, keep up to date with the latest industry activity, build your connections, and stay at the forefront of safety and best practice. Places are limited, so make sure you reserve your spot as soon as possible.

Due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus, many ALLMI training providers are unable to engage in course delivery at present, or are having to limit the number of courses they supply. This is, therefore, likely to result in an increased number of expired ALLMI cards circulating within the industry. Due to these unprecedented and exceptional circumstances, ALLMI’s stance is aligned with that of CSCS on this matter by requesting that those responsible for site access and card checking use their discretion towards workers whose cards have recently expired. This is on the condition they can provide evidence that the required refresher training / assessment cannot be undertaken as a result of training provider closures. This stance is also supported by Build UK.
