The International Powered Access Federation has formed the Brazilian Country Council during its first meeting with Brazilian members in late May in Sao Paulo. The IPAF Brazilian Country Council will promote the safe usage of powered access equipment.
“The market in Brazil is growing fast and the Council has many tasks to carry out in the next months,” said Romina Vanzi, IPAF’s representative in Latin America. “The Brazilian legislation concerning mobile elevating work platforms is about to be reviewed soon and the IPAF Brazilian Country Council has been requested to actively participate in the change process and contribute on revisions required to the relevant legislation.”
IPAF president Wayne Lawson said the development of the council is an important step in the development of IPAF’s work. “IPAF country councils aim to involve members – identifying local requirements, emphasizing the safe use of powered access, promoting the industry as a whole and giving members a stake in charting the course,” Lawson said.
Council members are:
- Marcelo Yamane, Mills Rental, chairman;
- Roland Colombari, Solaris, vice chairman;
- Fabio Cunzolo, Cunzolo Rental;
- Rafael Bazzarella, Skyjack;
- Rafael Cardoso, Genie;
- Renato Fernandes de Almeida, Riwal do Brasil;
- Romina Vanzi, IPAF Latin America.
