The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) exists to promote the safe and effective use of powered access equipment worldwide. That was the objective of its founding members and this is the theme at IPAF’s stand 200 at the APEX trade show from 24 to 26 June 2014 at the RAI Centre in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
IPAF members reaffirmed the Federation’s original objectives and re-adopted them into the Federation’s rules at the recent annual general meeting in April. Among others, IPAF’s objectives are:
- “To encourage the highest standards of safety and good trading by members”
- “To encourage technical efficiency in the industry by cooperation in the establishment of standards”
“IPAF’s members cooperate to protect the safety of people in the access industry,” said IPAF CEO Tim Whiteman. “By re-adopting the founding principles, IPAF members make very clear what IPAF stands for and what it sets out to do and deliver. I call on anybody attending or visiting APEX who is not an IPAF member to sign up during the show – be part of the movement to keep our industry safe!”
IPAF is the official partner association supporting the APEX show and is holding a series of member meetings at APEX. Details at www.ipaf.org/events
