Proof of Quality, For Your Peace of Mind

Not only do you have our word that we act with integrity and professionalism, but each accreditation that we have is a guarantee to you. Each one comes with a clear set of standards and these define how we work each day. 

Fork Lift Truck Association (FLTA)

The UK's independent authority on forklift trucks exists to raise standards, safety and professionalism. As a Full Member, we have signed up to the FLTA Code of Practice, our industry's highest benchmark for integrity and service. As well as this, a member of our Company sits on the FLTA Board as Chair of Quality. 

We also have access to specialised technical and safety documentation, with additional support whenever we need it, to help us give you the best, most up-to-date advice when legislation and best practice change. 

AITT (Association of Industrial Truck Trainers) 

AITT is one of the few training bodies approved by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) to certify that forkift training meets the requirements of its Approved Code of Practice (L117). Importantly it's also the only member run accrediting body for material handling equipment training, consisting of industry experts who strive to ensure the highest levels of safety are met. Together with streamlined paperwork processes and being able to tailor content to specific operations, we believe AITT are the perfect choice of partner for HFT and our customers.

We're fully accredited in categories 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 9 - delivering and examining all forms of training, including training new, AITT accredited trainers. 



A training body with a huge knowledge bank and plenty of expertise, ITSSAR write and monitor standards for a very broad range of courses. As a founder member of the Accrediting Bodies Association Work Place Transport (ABA) 2012, their aim is to guarantee the highest quality training by exceeding the standards set by the Accrediting Bodies Forum 2000. ITSSAR have a very thorough approach and their commitment to continuous improvement are values we share, making them an obvious partner.

Consolidated Fork Truck Services (CFTS)

The industry's own "gold standard" for Thorough Examination, CFTS was established by the leading trade bodies in co-operation with the HSE, to give clear processes and procedures to ensure that trucks genuinely are safe. 

Every truck that we provide - whether new, used or for hire - will display the distinctive CFTS Kite Mark, showing that it has been fully inspected and holds a valid Thorough Examination certificate.

Alcumus SafeContractor
