Launched on LEEA’s Global Lifting Awareness Day (July 7) as part of its Academy 2.0 platform, this one-day course provides an essential insight to general legal responsibilities for lifting equipment owners and end users. The association said it is suitable for company directors, senior managers and responsible persons where lifting equipment is used in the business.

The course content includes: an introduction to the legislative requirements for owners and end users of lifting equipment that covers standards and best practice; principles for selection of equipment, information to be exchanged between the user and supplier, and the various types of thorough examination; the role of the competent person conducting thorough examinations of equipment. 

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

This course is available in English, Simplified Chinese, Bahasa, Arabic and Brazilian Portuguese. It can be accessed via the LEEA website

End User Guidance is the first of a series of online courses being launched on LEEA’s new Academy 2.0 platform, developed in partnership with Nucleus Learning.

Andrew Wright, deputy ceo at LEEA, said: “Through its work with our team on developing the platform, Nucleus Learning has provided LEEA’s new Academy 2.0 with one of the most robust remote assessment engines in the world, giving the assurance that the qualifications gain via this channel uphold the association’s ‘gold standard’.”
