All rental/hire members of the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) in the UK have “levelled up” to the IPAF Rental+ minimum standard, which assures people seeking to hire mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) that an IPAF member company will conform to the highest industry standards of safety and professionalism.
Leading manufacturers have been invited to sign a pledge to ensure all operators of boom-type MEWPs wear a full-body harness and correct lanyard at a special event hosted by IPAF on 5 September, during the BICES event in Beijing, China.
More than 50 delegates attended the first ever IPAF workshop on training and safety standards to be held in Oman, answering demand in the country to establish robust standards to improve operator safety and technical inspections of MEWP machines.
IPAF ElevAÇÃO is the most important event of the powered access industry in Brazil and Latin America. In its seventh year, the two-day conference will help delegates broaden their knowledge of safety issues and legislation, and gives an opportunity to meet other industry professionals to share experiences and network.
Save the date for the 2020 IPAF Summit in London. The IAPAs are the most prestigious and respected awards in the powered access industry and they take place in the evening after the IPAF Summit. The IAPAs celebrate best practice and excellence in the industry and each year an independent judging panel of access industry leaders vote to determine the winners.
