Delegates of the Freight Transport Association’s (FTA) Safety in Logistics conference are being urged to book their place immediately, due to huge demand.
The 2013 event has proven so successful it has moved venue to the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel and only a few tickets remain.
It offers health and safety managers the opportunity to update themselves on industry initiatives, Health and Safety Executive (HSE) strategy, best practice and enforcement focus areas.
Speakers at the Cobra-sponsored event, taking place on June 12, will include HSE, Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) and FTA experts.
Key sessions at the conference will include reversing vehicles, load securing, HSE cost recovery, HSE strategy and improving manual handling techniques.
Andrew Smith, Managing Director of sponsors Cobra UK, said: “The FTA is the champion of the freight industry and we are proud to be a part of their upcoming Safety in Logistics event.
“Demonstrating our own credentials when it comes to safety, we have recently launched our new Global Live Cycle Scanner, which has been developed specifically for HGVs in response to the growing need for on board cyclist protection systems, particularly in vehicles that work predominantly in urban areas.”
Safety in Logistics is supported by Maple Fleet Services, the Institute of Road Transport Engineers (IRTE) and the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH).
The cost for FTA members is £325 plus VAT for the first delegate and £275 plus VAT for subsequent delegates
For non-FTA members, the cost is £385 plus VAT for the first delegate and £345 plus VAT for subsequent delegates.
Bookings of six or more will pay only £260 plus VAT per delegate.
