Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia - Glass Room 1. 41, Jalan Tun Ismail, 50480 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) promotes the safe and effective use of powered access equipment worldwide in the widest sense -- through providing technical advice and information, through influencing and interpreting legislation and standards,through its safety initiatives and training programmes. It is a not-for-profit organisation owned by its members who include manufacturers, rental companies, contractors and users. IPAF Malaysia Seminar 2014 is held in conjunction with ONEBUILD 2014 Malaysia International Building, Construction & Infrastructure. IPAF will have a stand at Booth 1760. The IPAF Malaysia Seminar 2014 is set to be an annual event where access rental companies, users, manufacturers and government representatives around Asia will meet and exchange ideas on promoting the safe and effective use of powered access. The seminar is expected to draw many representatives of the powered access industry within Malaysia & Internationally. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about the latest work at height developments and safety initiatives in the industry. The objective of the Seminar is: Raising the Standard: Bringing stakeholders together and learning from each other to promote the safe and effective use of powered access in Malaysia There are a total of 1.02 Millions of Mobile Elevated World Platforms (MEWPs) in the world while Asia PAC has about 145,500 MEWPs. With about 30 millions of population in Malaysia and many construction projects in the plan, the numbers of MEWPs in Malaysia have been increasing tremendously since the last few years. “The construction sector is expected to continue recording high growth, albeit at a more moderate pace in 2014, as the completion of several large civil engineering projects will more than offset the progress in existing projects in the transport, utility, and oil and gas sectors. Although several highway and power plant projects are expected to commence in 2014, these projects are not expected to provide significant support to overall growth in the construction sector in 2014.” From less than 1,000 unit of MEWPs to now a close of 3,000 units of MEWPs (market estimation), the growth in numbers within these few years, shows great potential. More and more construction sites are using MEWPs as the concerns on work at height safety awareness increases. Increased in labour cost have also cause the contractors to think about productivity. The culture of using MEWPs are now clearly being seen in Malaysia. As fall from height is one of the main factor in occupational death, Malaysian authority and the industry is set to improve this situation. Protecting Your Safety And Health had an interview on August 7, 2013 with Malaysia’s Department of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH), a department under the Ministry of Human Resources, for an exclusive interview and an in depth look at the topic. Below is an extract of it: UH: Can you tell us what are the top occupational hazards in Malaysia? DOSH: A few of the top occupational hazards in Malaysia are as listed below: i. Falling from high places ii. Getting caught between objects iii. Being exposed to hazardous chemicals iv. Excessive noise at the workplace. For the complete interview, visit: IPAF and its members are ready to contribute our part in prevention of fall from height in Malaysia too! This seminar will focus on promoting the use of mobile elevated work platform for work at height. Mobile Elevated Work Platform is one of the safest means for working at height. At the same time, we will also touch on the safe use of MEWPs so that users are fully aware of the situation.
