Find out more about LEEA

The Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA) is established across the world as the leading trade association for all those involved in the lifting industry.


Our vision is to promote enhanced standards and sustainable development for the worldwide Lifting and Safety industry.


Our mission is to educate, influence and enable so that best practice is normal practice.


Our strategic priorities are to:

  1. Support our members to identify and manage risk
  2. Protect and promote our members’ interests
  3. Provide our members with a competitive edge

To deliver this vision, LEEA strives to be:

  • Member focused – everything we do must be aimed at improving the position of our members
  • Outward facing – we will build relationships with the sectors in which our members work
  • Forward looking – we will look to the future and develop solutions which ensure that our employers stay ahead of the curve
  • Insight sharing – we will share our work and insights with our members
  • Excellence seeking – at all times we must aim to be excellent

Our members work in every aspect of the lifting industry, from design, manufacture, refurbishment and repair, through to the hire, maintenance and use of lifting equipment.

Our Association has played a key role in this specialised field for over 75 years, from training and standards setting through to health and safety, the provision of technical and legal advice, and the development of examination and licensing systems.

We represent our members at the highest levels across a range of both public and private bodies, including government departments as well as nationally and internationally recognised professional and technical institutions.
