Tim Whiteman, CEO of IPAF, joined a webinar to discuss the capabilities and potential of VR and simulators in assisting training for safe operations while working at height, hosted by Engineering News Record (ENR). ‘Upping the Game: The Evolution of Virtual Reality Technology’ in the Construction Industry’ is now available to view online.
Major construction projects are driving accelerated uptake of MEWP operator training in countries such as Denmark, where international contractors are insisting that all powered access users hold certification from an accredited IPAF training centre.
IPAF has created a film warning people not to cut corners when using MEWPs to carry out temporary work at height, launching it at its Asia Conference & Showcase in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – the busiest edition of the event to date with around 350 attendees.
The conference, networking and gala dinner event takes place in the heart of England at the Doubletree by Hilton on the outskirts of Coventry. Elevation is aimed at the UK powered access industry and is open to IPAF members and non-members alike. The event is a chance for powered access professionals to meet and network, learn about the latest developments, and celebrate all that is great about our industry. BOOKING NOW OPEN
