Join us in Texas at the Houston Area Safety Council headquarters for an exciting new event where attendees will collaborate with industry colleagues from manufacturers, rental companies, contractors, service companies – drivers, mechanics, managers, salespersons, operators and supervisors – in problem-solving workshops on the first day and presentations the next.

Each attendee will be an active participant in promoting positive changes in the industry and will be assigned to one of the ten available workshops each facilitated by an IPAF North American Regional Council member - although you can specify your preferred workshops during registration.

The workshop topics are, Exiting an elevated work platform; Site risk assessment; Introduction to platform load sensing; Recognizing and avoiding electrocution; MEWP rescue plan; Do we know what a safe work site is?; Near misses; Retraining; Safe MEWP travelling on site; Qualified service technicians. Full details available on each at www.ipaf.org/innovate.

An evening networking event with a buffet dinner will take place at NASA's facility in Houston, where the innovation that led to the Shuttle program will inspire participants ahead of the presentations the following day.
