10 Reasons to Choose ALLMI Training

 

  1. The ALLMI scheme is fully compliant with the requirements of BS7121 Part 4: 2010(the British Standard covering the safe us of lorry loaders) and is endorsed by the ALLMI / CPA Best Practice Guide (BPG) for the “Safe Use of Lorry Loaders”. The BPG is endorsed by SAFed, ConstructionSkills, the National Construction College, MPBA and the HSE,  and it can be downloaded free of charge from the ALLMI website.
  2. ALLMI is the only accrediting body to specialise in lorry loader training and it delivers the only operator programme to be written by the lorry loader industry, for the lorry loader industry. ALLMI’s training standards are developed and maintained by the ALLMI Training Committee, which consists of representatives from various UK loader crane manufacturers, importers, fleet owners and training companies, as well as the HSE.
  3. ALLMI provides unequalled and comprehensive technical and legislative support for its accredited instructor network, as well as all operators carrying the ALLMI card. No other accrediting body is able to offer such specialist advice and guidance in relation to the safe use of lorry loaders.
  4. The quality and standard of ALLMI’s course documentation for both its instructors and operators cannot be rivalled. Instructors receive the ALLMI Instructor Manual, as well as a range of training aids, which assist them in delivering the highest standard of lorry loader training and assessment. Operators are issued with ALLMI Operator Manual, which serves as a reference guide throughout their career.
  5. ALLMI is the only accrediting body to provide an Instructor Course which is geared specifically towards the delivery of lorry loader training.
  6. Quality, accredited and audited training forms the backbone of the ALLMI scheme, in addition to the rigorous assessment process that operators must successfully complete.
  7. Demand: the ALLMI card is arguably the UK’s most sought after lorry loader operator qualification.
  8. Due to the way in which the scheme is managed the ALLMI programme provides employers with a comprehensive audit trail in relation to the training of operators, therefore providing essential support, should an accident occur involving lorry loader activities.
  9. ALLMI enjoys an excellent reciprocal working relationship with the HSE. The HSE has input into many of ALLMI’s projects and standards and, in turn, ALLMI assists the HSE in communicating best practice and legislative requirements to industry. The ALLMI scheme is the only one of its type to have received the HSE’s “Working in Partnership” commendation when these were issued. ALLMI operator training is also approved by CSCS.
  10. ALLMI does not use NVQs or log books as part of its scheme, as it believes the most appropriate way to assist employers in determining competence is to administer refresher training and assessment on a periodic basis, as endorsed by Annex B, section 8.6 of BS7121 Part 4: 2010.

The Importance of Slinger / Signaller Training

Many employers are under the impression that a lorry loader operator course also provides candidates with the knowledge and skill required for slinging and signalling, but this is not the case as additional training and assessment needs to be undertaken in order to be proficient in this area.

The use of inadequately trained slingers / signallers is a major cause of accidents. Even if such accidents do not cause a fatality or an injury, they will almost certainly lead to costly legal action or damaged equipment. Therefore, quality slinger / signaller training is a must. A properly trained slinger / signaller is also a more profitable one, providing higher levels of efficiency and less down time, as well as a safer working environment. ALLMI instructors can supply the rigorous and all-inclusive training necessary to achieve these benefits.

Quality of Instructors

ALLMI instructors are fully trained and qualified in the techniques of slinging and signalling, and are audited annually in order to ensure that a high standard is maintained across the ALLMI training provider network.
