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; and through safety initiatives and training programs.


IPAF is a not-for-profit organization owned by its members, which include manufacturers, rental companies, distributors, contractors and users. IPAF members operate a majority of the MEWP  rental fleet worldwide and manufacture about  85% of platforms on the market.


The cooperation between Haulotte & IPAF to promote the safe and effective use of powered access worldwide is a step forward for sharing ideas and experience related to safety and best practice of powered access equipment.
