Wachovia announces discount for AWPT training

Wachovia Insurance Premiums has announced the availability of a discount on general liability insurance premiums to companies that adopt AWPT/IPAF training for operators of aerial work platforms. The discount supports the efforts of the International Powered Access Foundation and Aerial Work Platform Training, their North American subsidiary, to bring internationally recognized training programs for operators of aerial work platforms to the North American market.

“Properly trained users of equipment can reduce risk and minimize the probability of accidents, injuries and losses,” says William J. Holler, vice president of Wachovia Insurance Service. “The confidence in the effectiveness of this training program in reducing accidents allows the insurance company to offer a 15 percent discount off the general liability insurance premiums for all companies insured through our special program for aerial lift equipment dealers.”

To qualify for the discount, companies must require employees who operate or occupy an aerial platform to successfully complete an AWPT training program.
