Congratulations to McCain Foods on its success in the 2012 FLTA Awards for Excellence.

McCain Award

In presenting the Safe SiteAward, Sally Gunnell OBE said:

‘Everyone knows it’s crucial to ensure all fork lift truck operators are properly trained, if a site is going to be safe. But if you can pinpoint the exact risk areas, and focus your training to match, then you can really maximise results – and tonight’s Safe Site winner has done just that. No less than sixty-five of our winners’ operators have now completed online assessments with Virtual Risk Manager – FLT. Around half of those assessments revealed specific risk areas, which were then targeted with focused, individual coaching. As a result, they’ve seen improvements in operator audits, reduced damage and downtime… and a safer site all round’.

The trophy was also on display at the company’s most recent board meeting, where the directors were very impressed with what has been achieved thus far by the program, and plans are in place for communications and wider roll out across further sites.
