We’ve been awarded the Certificate of Accreditation by the Fork Lift Truck Association

Here at Fork Truck Direct we’re delighted to announce that we have been awarded the Certificate of Accreditation by the UK’s foremost authority on materials handling: the Fork Lift Truck Association (FLTA).

To be considered for this we underwent a 100-point onsite audit to ensure consistently high standards and compliance across areas of business operations, including safety, health, environmental and risk management.


FLTA Compliance Manager Lee Medway, who carried out the audit explains why the process is so important: “The audit is designed to give customers real peace of mind.  As an audit compliant company, customers know that Fork Truck Direct has measured up to an industry-led health check, operates impressive health and safety policies and working practices.”


Accepting certification Mike Dixon said: “We welcomed the FLTA audit as an opportunity to review our operations, we were really pleased to be leading the way by being among the first to complete the audit. It presented us with a welcome opportunity to stand back, take stock and work even more effectively on behalf of our customers. Achieving compliance helps eliminate customers’ risk of any weak link in the supply chain of traceability and accountability.”


As members of the FLTA we have to follow a Code of Practice laid out by the FLTA that show we are competent to offer expert advice and provide the most appropriate equipment to our customers. It is great to be able to take part in the assessment and also to have passed with flying colours, giving our customers even more confidence when they come to us for the forklift needs.
