Importance of ALLMI in Crane Industry

As you will undoubtedly have seen throughout our site, or in past news articles; our team places a real emphasis and focus on Health and Safety in the lifting and logistics industries.

When you stop and think about it, it isn’t too difficult to understand why it is of paramount importance.

  • Forklifts
  • Heavy Goods Vehicles
  • Cranes (along with slings and chains)
  • Winches

The above are just a few of the pieces of equipment our team operate on a daily basis. All have the power, weight and equipment to hurt and potentially kill.  That is why we have a compliance team and ensure our staff are highly trained.

We operate across many industries and as such have a collection of governing bodies to keep happy.  We’ll run a piece on each of these over the coming months.

The focus of this post, however, is ALLMI.

Allmi Sussex Transport“The Association of Lorry Loader Manufacturers and Importers (ALLMI) is a governing was founded in 1978 at the request of the Health and Safety Executive, and it remains today as the UK’s only Trade Association devoted exclusively to the lorry loader industry. It serves, represents and promotes the interests of its members and the industry at large, and it is the natural focus and authority on all issues involving the design, manufacture, application and use of lorry loaders.

ALLMI’s core aims are:

  • To promote the safe use of lorry loaders.
  • To ensure that the Association is involved in the formulation of any legislation which affects the industry’s interests.
  • To promote compliance with training requirements embodied in current legislation.

ALLMI has members drawn from all parts of the industry, including manufacturers / importers, service agents, ancillary equipment manufacturers / suppliers, fleet owners and site operators.

All members share the same objective of promoting safe use and best practice.”
