Vanzi said, "Joining forces is the key to supporting the industry in. This agreement reflects our continued commitment to safety and above all providing a good service to our members.

Greño highlighted the continuity of the collaboration, "The agreement with ANAPAT five years ago, has really benefitted members in both organizations. IPAF's entry into ELEVA is a natural progression and will further strengthen our collaboration to advance safety and best practices.

The ELEVA Steering Committee stresses that "the addition of IPAF to ELEVA as a strategic partner for safety issues further strengthens the Alliance and gives us more resources to do 'more and better' for the benefit of the lifting industry we represent.
