WAHA is proud to announce our partnership with the FIA, the national body representing the Formwork Industry.

The Working at Height Association (WAHA) and the Formwork Industry Association (FIA) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) under which both organisations have agreed to support activities and education opportunities which enhance safety in the workplace and empower workers to make better decisions whilst working at height.

Both WAHA and FIA have agreed to lend their respective expertise in the professional development of the industry and to provide guidance to each other in the design of content and technical material affecting those key stakeholders. 

Joint activities undertaken as part of this agreement may include: seminars, workshops and training, needs assessment advisory undertakings, qualifications development and professional leadership development.

The opportunity to collaborate with professional organisations ensures that the WAHA mission is relevant to those affected by working at height and that our activities align with the broader objectives of education and empowerment. Ultimately we are here to ensure people go home safely to their families at the end of the day, and working with respected and established bodies like the FIA helps us both connect with those stakeholders around safety, and make those who in the construction industry a safer one in which to work.

WAHA CEO Scott Barber
