Our LEEA certified operatives will ensure any heavy work is carried out as safely as possible

Handling heavy gear can be dangerous if not carried out properly, and with large forces at play it is important to be trained and able to complete jobs safely. LHD’s operatives have completed several courses through the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA), giving boats peace of mind that work on their gear will be carried out as safely as possible by qualified individuals.

Courses completed:

Course 1: Entry Examination (P1E)

Course 2: Lifting Equipment General (LEG)

Course 3: Lifting Machines Manual (LMM)

Course 4: Lifting Machines Power (LMP)
