France-based Haulotte Group's subsidiary in Shanghai has become the first IPAF training centre established in China.

The partnership was announced during the Bauma China exhibition last week and saw two engineers from the Haulotte Shanghai sales and service subsidiary receive their IPAF trainer certificates.

Tim Whiteman, IPAF CEO, said it was a key step towards greater safety standards in China and would help with “the promotion of a workplace safety culture with regulations that will improve operating environments.”

Alexandre Saubot, COO of Haulotte Group, added he was proud of the partnership. “For many years Haulotte Group and IPAF have worked closely to promote safety all around the world. This new step in China will increase the awareness of all the actors of our industry, and will allow us to perfectly meet our customer’s requirements.”
