The fourth Global Lifting Awareness Day – #GLAD2023 – will take place on July 13.

Powered by the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (Leea) and supporting organizations, it is a day where manufacturers, suppliers and end users share material that promotes safe and high-quality load lifting.

Social media posts, videos, articles and in-person activity will again be bound together by the hashtag, #GLAD2023. Industry stakeholders are also invited to share their content so Leea can add it to the website – – where information about apprenticeships, military recruitment, diversity, sustainability and technology has been posted during previous years.

“There’s an energy building behind plans for this year’s Global Lifting Awareness Day that suggests it will be the most widely supported and impactful ever. The concept has successfully spanned the Covid era, reiterating the fact that lifting remains both ubiquitous and essential in keeping all kinds of operations going, irrespective of pandemics and economic conditions,” says Ross Moloney, CEO at Leea.
