Dec 1st, 2008

The meeting was prompted by a keynote address that Skyjack group president Ken McDougall delivered at the APEX Conference held September 17th in Maastricht, the Netherlands. During his speech McDougall discussed the need for some form of standardized training for AWP operators and called for action by manufacturers to promote standardized training as the surest way of minimizing the risk of accidents. The purpose of the November 11th meeting was to discuss how operator training standards can be raised and to investigate whether it is possible to agree on minimum standards of operator training.
