The 4th IPAF Middle East Convention was held recently at Meydan Racecourse in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Haulotte who has consistently been a prominent supporter of IPAF, participated in the November event as a sponsor.
The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) promotes safe and effective use of powered access equipment worldwide in the widest sense. This includes providing technical advice and information, interpreting legislation and standards, and safety training initiatives.
Working at height remains one of the biggest causes of fatalities and major injuries. It’s a common requirement for many jobs and occupations, especially in the construction sector throughout the UAE and GCC region.
Safety is a must for Haulotte and for this reason Haulotte products are designed with the latest technology and the highest level of safety features. Haulotte has developed many options with optimal productivity that can give the best comfort and safety feeling to the operator.
The Haulotte Activ’Shield Bar provides the highest level of safety for aerial platform operators. In an entrapment situation, the operator is pushed towards the bar and the machine stops automatically. The large clearance space, the Safety Gap, protects the operator from the entrapment. The Haulotte Activ’Lighting System is simply essential to ensure the safety of the driver during loading and unloading operations.
Subjects covered in this convention included safety at height, how to prevent falls using the right type of equipment, local legislation, analysis of GCC market, actions to be taken before crises, market trends, and new technologies for training users and new technologies for Rental Companies (SMART PAL Card-eLearning)
