Booking is now open for the annual IPAF Summit, which in 2019 will be held for the first time in the Middle East, and at the same time nominations for the International Awards for Powered Access (IAPAs) have opened via www.iapa-summit.info
Haulotte, the international MEWP manufacturer, has reached a historic agreement that sees it become one of the first sustaining members of IPAF, which was formally signed at the Europlatform 2018 conference in Belfast, Northern Ireland, on 11 October.
Adopting advanced technology, embracing change, utilising big data and most importantly relying on a skilled, engaged and energised workforce are the secrets of a successful, sustainable business model and enhancing safety in the powered access rental market, was the key message at this year’s Europlatform conference in Belfast.
IPAF's enhanced eLearning module is part of its full training programme for mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs). The eLearning module delivers flexibility and interactive tools, with the same emphasis on practical training.
IPAF’s latest safety campaign highlights the main contributing factors to falls from the MEWP platform and how these can be avoided to ensure all those working with MEWPs plan for safety from the ground before work starts.
