In addition to LEIA being recognised as a well-established association, members benefit from its close links with a number of influential bodies. For example, LEIA is a member of the Specialist Engineering Contractors Group in the UK and a member of the European Lift Association. There is LEIA representation on all product-related standards-making committees at national and international level. See Affiliations.
LEIA provides a wide range of services, including information and advice on all industry related statutory requirements, health and safety matters and good business practice, as well as European and international technical standards. This information is provided through workshops, seminars, reports and other documentation, much of which can be downloaded from this website. See Publications.
LEIA also promotes, develops and manages well established and highly regarded education and training services, including National Vocational Qualifications for a range of industry products and academic study available through distance learning. See Education & Training.
These and many other issues are considered by a range of Association committees of experts to whom the industry is indebted for the time and knowledge given. It is the work of these committees and their invaluable contribution that sets a level of professionalism for the industry as a whole. See LEIA Committees.
