IPAF US Convention to Focus on AWP Management Responsibilities

The International Powered Access Federation's US Convention, scheduled for Oct. 22-23 in Celebration, Fla., has been developed for managers of aerial work platforms on job sites who want to know about their responsibilities and how to meet them. The convention will take place at the Bohemian Hotel Celebration, located close to the Lift and Access Showcase & Symposium, the Ritchie Bros. equipment auction, and the National Safety Council (NSC) Congress & Expo taking place the same week.

At the IPAF US Convention, Brian Wimer from NIOSH will introduce a new joint venture project with IPAF and Motorola to develop applications with the use of smart phone technology to provide safe use information to users of booms and scissor lifts.

Mike Disser from NES Rentals will discuss the cost of ownership and provide some insights to consider when buying equipment. Ebbe Christensen, president & CEO of ReachMaster , will examine compact machines, also known as spider lifts or atrium lifts, as a growing market segment.
