Attachment Working Groups

As part of a significant revision to its highly regarded lorry loader operator course, ALLMI has held the first round of meetings for its ‘Attachment Working Groups’.

Made up of representatives from a range of member companies and training providers, the Working Groups are consulting on content for the various attachment types covered by the ALLMI scheme. 

Martin Reeve, Fleet Engineer for Wincanton, comments “As a member of ALLMI, it’s great to be engaged in this way and to play a role in developing training material that will have a positive and direct impact on our industry sector.  The first meeting covered a range of applicable topics, including pre-operational checks, safe operation, stowage and assessment procedures.”  

Jon Kenyon, ALLMI Training & Project Officer and Chair of the Working Groups, adds “Whilst we have a vast amount of experience and knowledge within the ALLMI team, it has been hugely beneficial to draw upon the considerable expertise from within the membership and training provider network, and this is a crucial part of revising any ALLMI course. The first set of meetings facilitated excellent discussion, the conclusions from which have given us valuable direction as we look to further develop training scheme content over the coming months.”
