The Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA) has launched the LEEA Connect App (Version 2.0).

For the first time ever, the free to download app is available not only to LEEA members but also to non-members. This means it can be downloaded by engineers, examiners and anyone with an interest in the safety or technical aspects of lifting operations.

The new app delivers technical guidance, documentation, the latest LEEA news feeds, safety alerts as well as access to the LEEA Library and other information straight into a user’s smart device.

Ross Moloney, CEO of LEEA, said: “Previous versions of the Connect App were only available to LEEA members, but making the new LEEA Connect App (Version 2.0) publicly available opens up a huge opportunity for anybody involved in lifting to benefit, for example, from directly accessing LEEA’s Code of Practice (COPSULE), technical guidance and expert advice. We firmly believe this will increase awareness of best practice, ultimately leading to safer lifting operations.”

The app includes a news feed linked to a portal where all the latest LEEA news, videos, documents and LinkedIn posts are shown.

Content such as LEEA guidance documents, videos and more can be downloaded directly to a mobile device – handy for use offline.

The app also gives direct access to LEEA’s extensive collection of documents and resources related to the lifting industry. As soon as LEEA releases new content, users receive handy push notifications on their device.

Member-only content is also available in the new app, which will require a member login to access. LEEA members can still apply for an app login. Current LEEA Connect App users will not need to re-download as long as they have automatic app updates enabled, which will automatically upgrade to the latest version.

Free to download and now available to all, the LEEA Connect App (Version 2.0) is available for mobile devices on the Apple App Store and the Google Play store.

The Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA) is established across the globe as the leading representative body for all those involved in the lifting industry worldwide. Its members work in every aspect of the industry, from design, manufacture, refurbishment and repair, through to the hire, maintenance and use of lifting equipment.
