Inaugural LEEA Asia Conference to Take Place in June 2015 | Industry News

The Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA) announces it will launch a new conference at the Holiday Inn Singapore Atrium on June 23-24, 2015. The event will combine two days of presentations and networking for lifting industry professionals working with overhead cranes, hoists and rigging equipment in onshore, offshore and marine applications. The event also boasts a tabletop exhibition which will be open to all attendees during breakfast, coffee and lunch breaks.

LEEA is established across the globe as the leading representative body for all those involved in the lifting industry worldwide. It is the respected and authoritative representative body for those who work in every aspect of the industry, from design, manufacture, refurbishment and repair, through to the hire, maintenance and use of lifting equipment.

The conference’s keynote will be presented by Er. Tan Kee Chong, deputy director of the Singapore MInistry of Manpower. 

Other headline speakers include Mick Hoyle, crane, rigging and lifting specialist at oil and gas giant ExxonMobil. Hoyle said: “In a world where there are many different safety systems, I have put together a very simple cost effective concept that will keep people safe. Safety by Distance is a concept not only to be implemented when at work but to be used in everyday life. Applied consistently it will become a way of life.”
 
He will share this Safety by Distance concept with LEEA Lifting & Rigging Conference Asia delegates and explain how it is based on an ideology that people should always be protected first, not assets. Hoyle will outline how delegates should use their eyes and ears to alert them to a dangerous situation and position themselves out of harm’s way.
