IPAF Tout MEWPs As Greenest & Safest Working Option

The industry body IPAF (International Powered Access Federation) is working in East Asia over the next few weeks to promote both the safety and environmental benefits of using the mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) when working at height.

In October, the IPAF will be at the BICES exhibition in Beijing to promote the safety benefits of utilising the MEWPS. The industry federation will run ‘show and tell’ sessions and demonstrations, helped by several of its members, to demonstrate the improvements to work productive and safety that powered access platforms can bring.

Moving on to Singapore in November, the IPAF will be promoting the environmental benefits of utilising MEWPs in landscaping and construction projects alike. Raymond Wat, IPAF South East Asia’s regional manager, said:

“Singapore aims to be a green country and to lead the industry for landscaping.

“IPAF is taking the lead to guide this industry in using the right equipment for temporary work at height and in using MEWPs safely and effectively. We will use this opportunity to meet up with landscaping contractors and associations to work hand in hand on MEWP safety.”
