LEEA and AWRF meet to raise standards

In October, LEEA CEO Ross Moloney visited Detroit in the US to present to the AWRF (Associated Wire Rope Fabricators) board. The two associations discussed further how to work together.

A large North American trade association, AWRF is, like LEEA, always seeking to raise standards. LEEA is looking to provide a service that will see AWRF members being audited against a code of practice developed by AWRF and LEEA will be offering its expertise to AWRF members on their journey.

AWRF was formed in 1975 and incorporated the following year by a group of concerned businessmen who felt there was a need for sling fabricators and special rigging components manufacturers to join together to form a trade association. The association promotes interests common among companies manufacturing, fabricating, or distributing lifting, rigging and load securement devices made of chain, rope, and synthetic products. It works to establish, acquire, preserve, and disseminate various technical information, and encourages the development of safety standards and programs, and product identification procedures.
