Why Join ALLMI? Print

Thorough Examination Training

ALLMI delivers an accredited training scheme for the thorough examination and testing of lorry loaders, which is only available to ALLMI members. Please click here for further information.

Providing Members with a Voice in the Industry

ALLMI has representatives on British, European and International Standards Committees for loader cranes.  As a result of ALLMI’s involvement, members have an opportunity to voice opinions on any forthcoming / proposed changes in this area and therefore have the potential to directly influence standards and legislation affecting the lorry loader industry.

Working in Partnership with the Health & Safety Executive (HSE)

Representatives of the HSE sit on ALLMI's Training and Technical Committees, and therefore have valuable input into the standards and guidance that ALLMI develops for its members. In addition, HSE representatives also attend General Meetings and provide members with guidance on a variety of important issues.

Guidance / Support on Technical Issues & Legislation Compliance

ALLMI’s Technical and Training Committees consist of representatives from the UK’s leading loader crane manufacturers and importers, as well as the HSE. Together with ALLMI’s involvement with the British, European and International loader crane Standards Committees, as well as the knowledge and expertise of ALLMI’s full time technical staff, this means that ALLMI members have access to an unrivalled level of advice and guidance on all aspects of lorry loader use, including health and safety matters, technical issues, legislation compliance, training and documentation.    

Technical Publications / Bulletins

Members have access to various technical publications and documents, including template report forms and check sheets for the testing and inspection of lorry loaders. Members also receive regular technical bulletins relating to issues affecting the industry.  

Free ALLMI Guidance Notes

ALLMI has published a range of over 20 Guidance Notes covering various lorry loader related subjects. Guidance Notes are provided free of charge to ALLMI members.

Courses for Managers

Members have access to a range of courses for managers which help them to comply with the requirements of PUWER 9.2.  Courses cover a wide range of subjects, such as the duties / responsibilities of the Appointed Person, Thorough Examinations / Load Tests, slinging / signalling and lorry loader operation.

Discounts on Training, Consultancy & ALLMI Products

ALLMI members receive a significant discount on the cost of the ALLMI Appointed Person course, which is the only accredited training programme of its kind in the UK to be dedicated exclusively to lorry loader lifting operations.  The course is fully compliant with the requirements of LOLER and BS7121 Part 4: 2010.  Members also receive a discount against the cost of the ALLMI Crane Supervisor course.  In addition, a discount is provided on a consultancy service offered by the Association, as well as a range of products including the ALLMI Code of Practice, pre-operational check sheet pads / windscreen holders and training DVDs.

Market Statistics

ALLMI facilitates the collation of market statistics between its manufacturer / importer members. Based on invoiced sales, the statistics are categorised by the tonne-metre rating of the cranes, as well as their application.

Group Buying

ALLMI runs a Buyers Co-operative which allows members to purchase core products and services at a discounted rate. This includes an insurance service which has seen many members save thousands of pounds on their premiums, as well as receiving improved levels of cover.

Website Promotion & Facilities

All ALLMI members are promoted through the ALLMI website.  Contact details are provided for each member, in addition to a link to their website and information on the services they offer.  Members also have access to a secure section of the site, which includes a download area containing regulations relevant to the industry, as well as a range of guidance documents and safety bulletins, all of which assist companies in complying with legislation, standards and best practice.  In addition, the secure area of the website contains an Engine Management Systems (EMS) facility, which provides a one-stop shop for all EMS related information coming from leading truck, loader crane and PTO manufacturers.
