SAF-T Conference Focuses on Safety for Powered Access Equipment

In cooperation with the Scaffold & Access Industry Association, Maximum Capacity Media announces it will hold its third live Safe Access, Fall Protection & Training (SAF-T) Conference in Nashville, Tenn. The one-day SAF-T Conference is scheduled for July 24, 2013, immediately following the SAIA 2013 Annual Convention at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel in the heart of downtown Music City.

Following the theme “Safety through Innovation,” the SAF-T Conference will promote the safe use of powered access equipment to owners and end-users. Through discussions stemming from age-old issues to current events, topics on the agenda will focus on aerial training, equipment design, and accessories that enhance the safety of powered access equipment. Presentation topics include:

  • Online Access Platform Operator Training: Is This the Future?
  • Powered Access Design Expectations: How Will Safety Considerations Influence Access Platform Design and Development?
  • Anti-Entrapment Devices for Powered Access: What are the Options?

“Featured presentations will be led by some of the industry’s leading authorities on aerial lift safety and aerial training,” says Guy Ramsey, president of Maximum Capacity Media and publisher of Lift and Access, official publication of the SAF-T Conference. “From these presentations, we expect lively discussions on safe operation and proper use of access platforms and fall protection from equipment operators, owners, and safety professionals.”

Attendees can expect to learn about access platform safe use and clarification of responsibilities in the context of the ANSI standards; the need for an improved level of consistent and high-quality aerial training for operators of access platforms; guidance on the successful implementation of operator aerial training programs for powered access equipment; and resources for evaluating existing aerial training programs.
