IPAF at bauma

15 April 2008

IPAF is promoting platform safety at bauma with the support of the exhibition organisers. The IPAF Safety Zone in the Outdoor Area F10, Stand No. N1014/9 covers more than 1700 square metres, and will focus on how to choose the right equipment and how to use harnesses correctly.

Fifteen pieces of equipment from leading manufacturers will be displayed in the IPAF Safety Zone. Trained personnel will demonstrate emergency escape from one of the largest vehicle-mounted platforms through abseiling. There will also be live demonstrations of the dangerous effect of soft ground conditions on outriggers. IPAF will host a series of short workshops in English and German on three topics: correct use of harnesses, training and typical accidents.
