The products in this category represent the year’s best examples of systems that help operator and equipment work in perfect harmony, thereby improving both safety and productivity. Examples of such additions might include considerate seating positions, easy cab entry, and assisted control.
The Environment category is for products that have made significant strides in cutting emissions, working more efficiently, or reducing consumption of precious resources – while still delivering the goods. Previous finalists include energy-efficient assisted pallet trucks, a low noise/energy displacement pump, and a truck axle that reduces tyre wear.

Safety remains at the top of the FLTA’s agenda. Products entered for this category should represent the strides taken by manufacturers to make their products safer, helping to reduce accidents and injuries. Previous finalists for this Award include a device allowing the operator to monitor fork load and position, and a truck with an electro-magnetic auto-parking brake.
Just when you thought you’d seen everything… along come a whole series of new products that demonstrate just how imaginative and innovative design engineers can be. The Innovation category shines a spotlight on products that have pushed the boundaries of materials handling technology. If you have such a product, this is the category for you.
This award celebrates the companies, big or small, across the UK which have gone above and beyond in their efforts to safeguard their workforce against fork lift truck accidents, and have the results to prove it. Such efforts might include investing in specialist training or technology, reorganising the site to improve safety, installing segregated pedestrian walkways, or changing work culture.
Safe Site nomination form
Presented to an individual who has devoted their career to the materials handling industry, this award honours those who have been instrumental in moving the industry forward, demonstrating exceptional service and dedication to raising standards.
This award is the highest individual honour bestowed by the Fork Lift Truck Association. The coveted Lifetime Achievement Award is presented to an individual who has made a significant and outstanding contribution to the materials handling industry.
New for 2017, this award will be presented to the dealership and FLTA member considered to operate its businesses to the highest standards - whether that be as a supplier, an employer, or as part of the wider community.
Among other criteria, judges will look for high safety standards, top quality customer service, training and retention of staff, and the health and well-being of workers.
This coveted Archie is awarded to the supplier whose support has contributed the most to keeping the industry and its trucks at their most productive throughout the year.
To make a nomination in the Supplier of the Year category, all you have to do is send an email with your nominated company to the FLTA Chief Executive, Peter Harvey, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
