Global Lifting Awareness Day 2023-#GLAD2023-will take place on 13 July.
Powered by the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA) and supporting organisations, it is now a widely celebrated day where manufacturers, suppliers, and end users are among those sharing material that promotes safe and high quality load lifting.
Ross Moloney, CEO at LEEA, said: “There’s an energy building behind plans for this year’s Global Lifting Awareness Day that suggest it will be the most widely supported and impactful ever. The concept has successfully spanned the Covid era, reiterating the fact that lifting remains both ubiquitous and essential in keeping all kinds of operations going, irrespective of pandemics and economic conditions.”
He added: “Fighting gravity is inherently dangerous and getting it wrong can lead to accident, injury, and even fatality. That makes it an extremely important, challenging, and rewarding sector to work in, which is just one of the messages we’re encouraging people to promote.”
