Announcing the opening of nominations for the Awards for Excellence 2012, the Fork Lift Truck Association has launched seven new, one-off Olympic categories.
According to FLTA chief executive David Ellison: "We couldn’t let this unique occasion pass without some acknowledgement.
These special categories have been added to inject a bit of fun without compromising the integrity and authority of our established awards categories. However, we have also introduced a special Award to commemorate the Association’s 40th Anniversary: the Victor Ludorum – to identify and acknowledge the outstanding contribution achieved in the 18 years of the Annual Awards for Excellence.
David Ellison says: "Every Award encourages and rewards those who aim high and excel. This one-off Award is the ultimate prize.
Encouraging companies to enter themselves, Mr Ellison said: "Nominating a product, service or individual couldn’t be easier – and there is real kudos in joining the ranks of our Pick of the Year. To be eligible a new product or service needs to have been made available for purchase from 1st October 2010 to 30th September 2011."
Nominations are now invited for the Ergonomics, Environment, Safety and Innovation categories together with the Safe Site Award. Application forms and further guidance on nominations can be found at: www.fork-truck.org.uk/awards.
But be quick! The deadline for entering in these categories is 30th September 2011.
