5 February 2014 Email this article

Speakers have been announced for the IPAF summit, which will take place on 3 April 2014 in Windsor and will see leading lights of the industry discuss topics such as best practice in using powered access equipment to accident statistics.

Confirmed speakers include Dave Smith, chair of the UK Contractors Group (UKCG) Health & Safety Leadership Group and COO of Wates Construction, one of the UK’s largest contractors, and David Miller, Deputy Chief Inspector of Air Accidents at the UK’s Air Accident Investigation Branch (AAIB).

The UKCG plays an active role in promoting the safe use of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) and Dave Smith will report on how contractors work to keep MEWP use safe and what they expect of their suppliers. David Miller will explain how the AAIB investigates air accidents and compiles accident statistics.

Also speaking is Bill Plummer, Executive Vice-President and Chief Financial Officer with US-based United Rentals. Presenting together with Fred Bratman, Head of Investor Relations, Bill Plummer will review how the access and rental industries can best connect with investors and bankers.

Other speakers will be examining what conclusions we can draw from IPAF’s industry accident reporting project, the most effective ways of investigating accidents, and how best practice can be turned into reality in the modern job site.

The IPAF Summit is being held at the Beaumont Estate Hotel in Windsor, on the same day as the International Awards for Powered Access (IAPAs) dinner and awards ceremony, jointly organised by Access International, Access Lift & Handlers and IPAF.
