Ross Moloney, CEO of the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (Leea), the organisation behind #GLAD2023, explained: “The event will be the de facto #GLAD2023 launch, demonstrating the increasing role Leea plays in representing the voice of our members at the highest level by continuing a good relationship with government departments, and working alongside them to create constructive solutions to the issues faced by the lifting sector.

“We are a trusted voice to those in the corridors of power and the event should energise activities that begin as #GLAD2023 dawns only hours later in some parts of the world.”

The programme of events includes webinars on the nuclear industry and accredited training; the official launch of a new Supporting Structures training course and LEEA Connect app 2.0; and a Digital Roundtable that will discuss the future of the industry. A guidance video on BS 7121 standards and an update from Leea’s Technical Forum are just two other highlights.

Moloney added: “With live elements, such as the webinars and technical forum, in addition to scheduled announcements throughout the day and repeated references to ongoing military recruitment and apprenticeships, #GLAD2023 is primed to achieve its objective – chiefly to raise the profile of our industry by sharing material that promotes safe and high-quality load lifting.”

#GLAD2023 will also provide a platform for Leea’s chosen charity, the Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association, as it continues to raise crucial funding to support research work and improve access to care for those people living with or affected by MND.
