Accident victim to address FLTA conference

Lisa RamosLisa Ramos who lost her leg in a forklift accident will open this year's FLTA National Fork Truck Safety Conference informing delegates of the severe, life changing consequences of forklift accidents for both victims and their families.

In 2006 Lisa was an administrator working for a logistics firm. While crossing the warehouse one day she was reversed into by a 2 1/2 ton forklift truck. Her left leg was crushed and required amputation above the knee

FLTA chief executive Peter Harvey said, "we so often talk about shocking facts and figures but to hear a first hand account of the long term pain and suffering a single forklift accident can cause..... that really puts the importance of forklift safety and the value of the knowledge imparted at this event into perspective.

Lisa is a valued addition to a superb safety conference line up. This year's event really is one not to be missed".

Taking place on Wednesday, 29 June 2016 at the Heart of England Conference and Events Centre, the conference welcomes hundreds of managers from companies of all sizes and across all sectors. Delegates enjoyed a highly informative and engaging programme which includes talks by industry professionals and guest speakers including Jo Salter the RAF’s  first ever female fast jet pilot.
