Jason Woods, IPAF Middle East representative, will take on additional responsibility as IPAF’s representative for India.
This new role builds on Jason’s extensive experience in the access industry and recent success in growing IPAF’s presence in the Middle East. IPAF has members across Jordan, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE. It has also established good relations with several health & safety authorities in the region, with the aim of promoting the safe use of powered access equipment in different industries.
“Adding India to IPAF’s Middle East representation was a logical development, due to the strong trade links between the regions, with many India-based companies operating in the Gulf area,” said IPAF CEO Tim Whiteman.
Nitin Gokhale from Dynamic Crane Engineers, who chairs the IPAF India Country Council, said, “IPAF members in India welcome Jason’s new appointment and additional support. This will help us further promote the safe and effective use of powered access in emerging markets where technical expertise, guidance, training and safety initiatives will be of great benefit.”
There are now close to 15 IPAF members in India. Jason Woods is based in the UAE.
