AWP Pre-Start Inspections the Focus for IPAF at Intermat | Industry News

The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) is urging the industry to keep the use of aerial work platforms safe by ensuring that pre-start inspections are done before starting any work. This is the message that IPAF is highlighting at Intermat from April 20 – 25, 2015, in Paris, France, at stand E5 G005.

In addition to demonstrations showing how to carry out a pre-start inspection, IPAF will feature its latest safety videos which provide visual tours of how to conduct pre-start inspections for scissor lifts (mobile verticals, 3a) and booms (mobile booms, 3b). Each video lasts about 10 minutes and is currently available in English (UK and US), German, French, Italian, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese and Chinese. Videos: can be found on-line at: http://www.awpt.org/publications/films/

The not-for-profit federation will also promote its range of resources on the subject of inspections, including the popular inspection key tags, which provide a handy reminder of points to cover for pre-start and workplace inspections. All resources can be found at www.ipaf.org/inspections

IPAF will also hold several member meetings during Intermat, including the IPAF Manufacturers’ Technical Committee meeting and Vehicle Mounted Manufacturers’ meeting. Details at www.ipaf.org/events
