The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) has joined the ELEVA industry alliance, launching a new phase of strategic collaboration for safety in the sectors it represents. This agreement with other trade associations ANAGRUAL, ANMOPYC, FANAGRUMAC, ANAPAT and AECE marks a significant milestone in unifying efforts to benefit the lifting industry.
The purpose of this IPAF Rental Standard is to acknowledge and document what is recognised as industry good practice, which in many cases exceeds minimum legislative requirements, therefore promoting and enabling the safe and effective use of powered access equipment worldwide.
Electrocutions involving MEWPs are one of the main causes of fatalities in the powered access industry. This webinar underpins IPAF’s international safety campaign 2023 - High Voltage! which identifies hazards and risks associated with working near power lines and explains how to avoid them and work safely.
