Twitter symposium for height safety

14 Apr 14 The Access Industry Forum (AIF) is gearing up to hold its first Twitter Q&A this week at 11am on Wednesday 16th April.

Taking the form of a one-hour question and answer session, the symposium offers the chance to put questions to experts in every area of work at height and access equipment.

AIF member associations are considered the voices of their industries in a wide range of areas. Experts with cranes and powered access, scaffolding, mobile access towers, ladders, rope access, safety netting and more will be standing by on the day of the symposium to answer questions.

To take part, people simply have to tweet a question and include the hashtag #WAHQ, or direct the question to @AIFworkatheight. The Construction Index via @TCindex will be tweeting highlights for our 46,000 followers.

Last month we published details of some of the organisations taking part as AIF members and supplying answers. 

AIF director Peter Bennett said: “This is a unique chance for people and companies with any questions about work at height or access equipment. It is not often that experts from across the AIF’s membership are all available and ready to answer questions at the same time, and it has certainly never been possible before without people having to attend a physical event.

“There have been a number of major changes recently, with the release of new HSE guidance, new product standards, and the rapid expansion of many AIF member associations. This roster of experts is the perfect group to field questions on these issues, including Directors and Managers well versed in the industry and equipment.”
