A series of virtual workshops to assist and support those who regularly carry out third party inspections of MEWPs and MCWPs will be hosted by IPAF to meet demand, which is high across the Middle East and South Asian countries.

IPAF has relaunched its global accident reporting portal as part of a major drive to gather the best quality data from around the world, demonstrating what analysis can teach us about improving safety in powered access with a webinar on the latest trends.

IPAF is urging key stakeholders to join a virtual APPG meeting, which takes place via Zoom on 9 Sept. As a member of the Access Industry Forum, IPAF plays a lead role in this cross-party inquiry into accidents and fatalities while working at height in the UK.
