Date announced for AIF working at height Twitter symposium
The Access Industry Forum (AIF) has set the date for the UK’s first ever Twitter Symposium devoted exclusively to working at height in the workplace. Starting at 11.00am on Wednesday 16 April 2014, it will take the form of a one-hour question and answer session and offer a unique opportunity to put questions to experts in every sector of the access industry.
Experts in topics such as ladders, mobile access towers, MEWPs and personal protective equipment to industrial rope access, edge protection, personal protective equipment and façade access will be standing by on the day to answer questions about virtually any aspect of working at height.
Taking part is easy. Simply tweet a question and include the hashtag ‘#WAHQ’, or direct the question to @AIFworkatheight. Non-Twitter users can also get involved by sending in a question via email to firstname.lastname@example.org at any point between now and the date of the symposium. All questions will be answered through tweets during the event, and questions sent in by email will also receive their response in email format afterwards.
AIF director, Peter Bennett, said: “This first-time event represents a quick and convenient way for managers, supervisors and users to get answers about any aspect of working at height. It has certainly not been possible before without people having to attend a physical event such as a seminar or exhibition.”
Organisations taking part in the symposium include BSIF, EPF, FASET, IPAF, IRATA, the Ladder Association, PASMA, SAEMA, and WAHSA.
