OITAF Seminar 2012

“Safety of transportation by rope: legal issues and practical experience”

This year the OITAF seminar will be held in the framework of SAM in Grenoble/France on 25 April. It is being organized by Work Committee no. 4 (Legal, Administrative, Economic and Statistical Matters).

At the seminar, ropeway safety – a central concern of OITAF – will be discussed at more than the purely technical level. The presentations will relate to two main topics:

  • The morning session will be devoted to experience to date with the implementation of measures taken in the last few years to prevent passengers from falling off chairlifts, with a strong focus on technical and operational solutions for making lifts safer for children.

  • The afternoon program will cover the legal aspects of product and environmental liability and will include a paper on the Austrian regulations for avalanche protection for ropeways.

Jörg Schröttner, head of the supreme ropeway authority at the Austrian Ministry of Transport and Chairman of OITAF Work Committee no. 4, will chair the proceedings. The speakers are all recognized experts in their fields. For the full program details and registration procedures, go to the OITAF website at www.oitaf.org
