IPAF North American Regional Council presents:

IPAF INNOVATE 2018
2018 Aerial and Mast Climber Workshop Challenge & Awards


Innovation doesn’t happen by itself.
The Houston Area Safety Council headquarters and NASA Space Center play host for an exciting new interactive event, where attendees collaborate and network with industry colleagues from manufacturers, rental companies, contractors, service companies – drivers, mechanics, managers, salespersons, operators and supervisors – in problem-solving workshops on the first day and presentations on the second.

Each attendee will be an active participant in promoting positive changes in the industry and will be assigned to one of the 10 available workshops, each facilitated by an IPAF North American Regional Council member (you can specify your preferred workshops during registration).

Workshop topics include:

  • Exiting an elevated work platform
  • Site risk assessment
  • Introduction to platform load sensing
  • Recognizing and avoiding electrocution
  • MEWP rescue plan
  • Do we know what a safe work site is?
  • Near misses
  • Retraining
  • Safe MEWP travelling on site
  • Qualified service technicians
