The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) has held its annual conference in the US (this year’s event marking the federation’s 30th anniversary), with Skyjack president Brad Boehler having spoken about AWP risk assessments and product selection.
Mr Boehler, who has been with the company for 10 years and was appointed as Skyjack’s president early last year, spoke at length on the conference’s first day reviewing industry best practices on carrying out risk assessments, site safety and ensuring workers are able to avoid potential hazards.
He also stressed the importance of safety and hazard awareness, urging companies to put practices and processes in place to protect their on-site workers and staff from the many hazards which can often present themselves in construction environments and any areas where working at height is involved.
The Skyjack president continued his talk to cover how, with safety and risk assessment in mind, companies should go about selecting new site products effectively – with Skyjack offering a great range in line with this.
