Enter the 2022 IAPA awards
By Euan Youdale28 September 2021
There are 13 award categories in the 2022 International Awards for Powered Access (IAPAs), which will be held as an in-person event for the first since 2019.
Taking place at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel, Kensington, in London, UK, on 10 March, the 13 IAPA award categories provide opportunities for companies directly related to the access industry, as well as those connected through components, safety equipment or other items that they supply to the powered access sector.
New for 2022 is the Sustainability Award, which is open to companies that have taken a leap forward in environmental engagement, whether it be through a product, service or other type of initiative. This new category forms part of a trio of awards that celebrate the cutting-edge of technological and safety advancements, which also includes The Technology Prize and the Digital Development award.
The other categories for 2022 consist of the usual four product of the year categories, Contribution to Safe Working at Height and the pair of IPAF training categories. In addition, budding photographers are invited to enter the Photo of the Year award - sponsored by UK film & TV rental company MAS. And, an individual will be recognised for their contributions to the industry in the Lifetime Achievement Award.
Remember, companies and individuals can enter as many awards as they like. They can also enter the same product or initiative into more than one category, if relevant.
Organised by Access International and IPAF, the IAPA awards are held on the same day as the IPAF Summit. IPAF will also hold a networking event at Illuminate, based at London’s Science Museum on the evening prior to the Summit and IAPAs. A site visit, planned for 11 March, the day after the IAPAs, will be confirmed shortly.
The overall theme of the IPAF Summit, powered access site visit and the IAPAs judging panel will be announced shortly.
