LEEA moves lifting equipment quality control to front of GLAD2024

As #GLAD2024 approaches on Thursday 18 July, LEEA is sharpening its focus on the importance of surrounding these three cornerstones of lifting with high quality.

“It’s about the ongoing battle between cost and quality,” said LEEA’s CEO, Ross Moloney. “We all know that buying decisions are made for a multitude of reasons, but we want people to make sure those choices are always based on quality.”

LEEA has already circulated three graphics based on high quality products, inspection, and training, all of which attach the trifecta to existing #GLAD2024 publicity. The message chimes with LEEA’s organisational vision to eliminate accidents, injuries, and fatalities, placing further emphasis on skills and employment, which had emerged as front-running themes when the fifth GLAD drive was launched.

“We are in a risky industry, and these are three key ways by which we can eliminate risk; accidents occur when these three things fail,” said Moloney. “Product matters, but because it was once compliant doesn’t mean it always will be, hence the need for ongoing inspection, and this must be conducted by a high quality individual, who has been trained to the highest standards.”

GLAD is an established event where its members, manufacturers, and suppliers lead those sharing material that promotes safe and high-quality load lifting across the world. Social media posts, videos, articles, and in-person activity are bound together by the hashtag, #GLAD2024.
