Robert Munn, Health & Safety Director, of the Expo 2020 world fair construction project has told IPAF’s fourth annual Middle East Convention that “everyone using a MEWP at Expo 2020 Dubai must have a PAL Card from IPAF.”
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.
IPAF ElevAÇÃO is the most important event of the powered access industry in Brazil and Latin America. In its sixth 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.
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.
