The Robert A. Young building in St. Louis has become the first construction site in the U.S. to be designated 100% AWPT-trained. AWPT (American Work Platform Training) is the North American subsidiary of the International Powered Access Federation (IP-AF) that manages the training program in North America.
AWPT-trained employees from access specialists Goedecke planned the 20-story building project and erected the mast climbing work platforms.
Bobby Reese, an AWPT-certified instructor, trained 56 Superior Waterproofing employees. The building was built in 1931 as a railroad warehouse. The federal government bought it in 1941, and still uses it for office space. For more, visit www.ipaf.org.
