Chinese mobile elevating work platform manufacturer Sinoboom has announced an innovative collaboration with the International Powered Access Federation for online learning that will significantly enhance safety and training standards for MEWP operators in China. The collaboration was formally marked with a signing ceremony at the IPAF stand on the opening day of APEX Asia.
Sinoboom is the first Chinese MEWP manufacturer to partner with IPAF in the delivery of its launch of an eLearning program, being made available to operators in Chinese free of charge. Sinoboom is making the training even more accessible by placing QR codes on all their MEWPs delivered in China. These QR codes can be scanned by operators, providing instant access to the free IPAF e-training.
This comprehensive e-training program covers a range of topics, allowing operators to progress to higher levels of certification, and can contribute to attainment of the internationally recognized PAL Card.
IPAF CEO and managing director Peter Douglas expressed his gratitude for Sinoboom’s commitment to promoting safety and its contribution to the eLearning program, going on to say: “China is the fastest-growing equipment market in the world, with a huge rental fleet comprising hundreds of thousands of machines, as well as nearly five million MEWP operators. It is very important to us that industry colleagues are equipped with the knowledge and skills to stay safe and work effectively.”
Sinoboom joined IPAF as a member in 2009, established China’s first IPAF Training Center in 2017, and now offers online and offline training both at its headquarters and in eight support centers in China. Sinoboom CEO Susan Xu is the first and only Asian member of the IPAF Council.
Founded in 2008, Sinoboom is a global manufacturer of MEWP solutions. Its global headquarters is located in Changsha, China, the country’s capital for construction and heavy machinery manufacturing, and its equipment is sold all over the world. For more information, visit www.sinoboom.com.
