The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) is gearing up for Intermat 2024, taking place between April 24th-27th at the Paris-Nord Villepinte convention centre, France. Situated at stand number F043 in Hall 6, IPAF invites industry professionals, stakeholders, and partners to engage with the team and delve into crucial discussions surrounding safety within the industry. 

Attendees at IPAF’s stand will be able to learn about IPAF's new safety campaign, ‘Crushing Can Kill!’ recently released at the annual Summit hosted in Copenhagen. Visitors can make use of a wide array of resources including technical guidance, advisory leaflets, stickers, Andy Access safety posters, and Toolbox Talk site briefings. 

Brian Parker, IPAF's Head of Safety & Technical, discussed the motivation behind the newly launched safety campaign, saying, "What motivated the ‘Crushing Can Kill’ campaign is our accident data, which highlighted crushing incidents in the industry. I hope to achieve globally, alongside our members, a reduction in entrapment and fatalities. Visit our stand at Intermat to learn more about IPAF's safety campaign for 2024 and the wide variety of safety resources available at IPAF."
