The Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA) has created a course to educate end users about the risks and responsibilities of lifting operations.

The course – Lifting Equipment End User Guidance – is aimed at company directors, senior managers, and responsible persons where lifting equipment is used in their business.

LEEA said attendees will gain an underpinning knowledge of the legislative frameworks, standards and best practices applicable to owners and end users of lifting equipment, as well as how equipment must be managed from procurement through to discard, its thorough examination requirements and record keeping.

The six hour-long course is available to both members (at a members rate) and to non-members either in person or via Zoom.

LEEA will be running four ‘taster’ sessions during GLAD 2021 on Thursday July 8, 2021.
