ConExpo to feature safety training

New additions to the CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2008 exhibition will focus on industry safety training and the need for a qualified industry workforce. The triennial show will be held March 11-15, 2008 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas.

In the show’s Safety Zone area, exhibiting groups include U.S. federal government organizations such as the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) and National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) will also be on hand with its Click It campaign, which demonstrates proper techniques for wearing full-body harnesses in boom type aerial work platforms. The “zone” is open during the run of the show, located west of the outdoors Blue Lot.
