ALLMI Membership Audits
Did you know that ALLMI is one of the few leading Trade Associations within the UK that audits its members, both at the point of application and then periodically thereafter?
ALLMI CEO, Tom Wakefield, comments “Applicants’ loader crane activity is assessed in line with the regulations, standards and industry guidance encapsulated within our Code of Practice, and advice is then provided on any areas that need addressing. This results in a form of membership that provides genuine value, not only to the company receiving the assistance but also to its customers, as they can have confidence in the quality of service being supplied.”
Kel-Berg Trailers & Trucks successfully completed the joining process earlier this year. The company’s Technical Engineer, Chris Kelly, comments “The audit was incredibly thorough, looking at our work covering installations, load testing and repairs, and mapping our operations against ALLMI’s stringent Code of Practice requirements. We were delighted to have met the required standard, and to receive guidance on how we can achieve ongoing advancement and compliance.”
John Wain, Managing Director of Truck & Marine Cranes, adds “We have recently undergone our periodic re-audit with the Association, which reviews every aspect of our loader crane business. As a member of ALLMI, we always work to the very highest of standards; however, this can only be achieved if we are committed to continuous progress and development, and the visit from ALLMI’s auditor was extremely beneficial in this regard.”
Tom Wakefield continues “A full round of manufacturer / service company audits has recently been completed, with all members of that category being visited. It’s been an incredibly positive process, which has facilitated valuable two-way feedback and led to a number of new initiatives. We now look forward to commencing the next phase of audits with our fleet owner members and reaping the many benefits this will bring.”
