Pre-inspection focus from IPAF
By Euan Youdale27 January 2015
The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) is urging the industry to keep the use of equipment safe by ensuring that pre-start inspections are carried out before any work is started.
This is the message that IPAF is highlighting at the Intermat construction show from 20 to 25 April 2015 in Paris, France, at stand E5 G005.
In addition to demonstrations on how to carry out a pre-start inspection, IPAF will feature its latest safety videos which provide visual tours of how to conduct pre-start inspections for scissor lifts (mobile verticals, 3a) and booms (mobile booms, 3b). Each video lasts about 10 minutes and is currently available in English (UK and US), German, French, Italian, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese and Chinese.
The not-for-profit Federation will also promote its range of resources on the subject of inspections, including the popular inspection key tags, which provide a reminder of points to cover for pre-start and workplace inspections. All inspection videos and resources can be found at www.ipaf.org/inspections
