Access safety and jobs with IPAF
IPAF (the International Powered Access Federation) will use Bauma to take visitors through its Safety Experience, a walk-through learning experience on how to use powered access equipment safely and effectively. The outdoor stand will highlight the association’s “Spread the load” campaign promoting the correct use of spreader plates, share results and findings from its growing accident reporting database. Falls from height are still the single largest killer in the workplace, says IPAF, and powered access is a good way of solving this problem. Finally, as part of IPAF’s ongoing “Job Access” project to attract young people to the powered access industry, visitors to the stand will also be invited to take a short interactive quiz.
