Committee Overview & Update

The first half of 2017 has been a busy period for ALLMI’s Committees and Board, with each one meeting in recent months.  

ALLMI Training Standards Committee

Having the important role of developing and maintaining ALLMI’s training standards, the Committee met in March in order to discuss a forthcoming update to the Association’s operator course, as well as a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) facility which is soon to be launched via the ALLMI website.  

ALLMI Technical Standards Committee

As the consultative body for all technical and legislative aspects of the Association’s activities, the Technical Standards Committee met in April with the key task of reviewing new ALLMI Guidance Notes covering Thorough Examinations and Work at Height, both of which have recently been published.  The Committee also reviewed draft guidance for persons conducting Thorough Examinations on loader cranes mounted to waterborne vessels, a document which ALLMI is producing in conjunction with the Maritime and Coastguard Agency.  

ALLMI Operators’ Forum Executive Committee

The Executive is elected by Operators’ Forum members in order to represent their interests and progress matters on their behalf.  Many of its activities feed into those of the Training and Technical Standards Committees, providing a valuable fleet owner perspective.  The Committee’s meeting in April focussed on a wide range of important issues, including the auditing of members, recruitment / retention, and also lone working, a subject for which ALLMI will develop a Guidance Note in 2017.  

ALLMI Board   

Elected by the membership, the Board oversees all ALLMI activities and is responsible for managing the direction of the Association.  The recent Board meeting included a discussion on ALLMI’s vast array of current projects, as well as agreement that a new area of the Association’s website would be developed in 2017, aimed specifically at promoting the lorry loader industry to young people and facilitating their contact with member companies.  It was also confirmed that a new Guidance Note would be produced covering the subject of on-site risk assessments, procedures and behaviour, all in relation to service / repair work.  

ALLMI CEO, Tom Wakefield, comments “ALLMI’s Board and Committee structure is fundamental to the running of the Association. We’re extremely fortunate that member companies, training providers and affiliated organisations, such as the HSE, are willing to commit valuable time to work on ALLMI matters, as their input facilitates the continual raising of standards for the betterment of the entire lorry loader industry.”
