Winners of the Safety Champion of the Year award and the Lifetime Achievement Award at the IAPA Awards 2012
Austin Baker from AFI-Uplift collects the Safety Champion of the Year award at the IAPA Awards 2012 and the daughter of the late Lars-Petter Godenhielm, Karin Nars (Dinolift) takes away the Lifetime Achievement Award, on behalf of her father.
Austin Baker was chosen by the judges, due to the work he has done with IPAF and for his commitment to promoting safety. The judges were impressed by his willingness to share his experience, effort and expertise - in order to create solutions for the common good, rather than his own.
The judges awarded Lars-Petter Godenhielm for being a great entrepreneur and for being good to do business with, as well as having been a huge supporting force in the industry - through his work with the industry regulations and with IPAF.
