The 70th anniversary of LEEA provides an opportune moment to look back at the story behind the association’s formation – and its subsequent development into a key player within the global overhead lifting industry.
At LEEA we regularly receive calls from both end users and suppliers with questions regarding the documentation that should accompany overhead lifting equipment.
When crane incidents occur, the cause can often be traced back to mistakes made in the planning of the lifting operation. Indeed, rather too frequently, the problem lies in the complete lack of any meaningful planning.
One of the key requirements of the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER) is that all lifting equipment must be subject to periodic thorough examination by a competent person.
