ACES inflatables safety event

Peter Grand, of PIPA, at ACES event in 2019

ADIPS is supporting the Amusement Catering Equipment Society (ACES) with the association’s inflatable operators safety awareness day in April.

The event will take place at Bugbrooke Village Hall, near Northampton, on 13 Thursday April.

ACES is laying on this day free for its members, but in the interest of industry safety is opening up attendance to non-members of the society. The day is being part-sponsored by ADIPS (the Amusement Devices Inspection Procedures Scheme).

ACES ran such a day in 2019 (pictured) and it was well attended and positively received.

For this year’s event, there will be talks from industry representatives of Health and Safety Executive (HSE), the Professional Inflatable Play Association (PIPA) and ADIPS. Attendees will receive an attendance certificate to place in the staff training portfolio.

The format for the day is still being confirmed, but in 2019 subjects included:

  • Conformity and Standards
  • Safe Handling                                               
  • Setting up outdoors on Grass / Earth
