Celebrating Global Lifting Awareness Day (GLAD)

Global Lifting Awareness Day (GLAD) What Is Global Lifting Awareness Day?

Global Lifting Awareness Day (GLAD) is held every year on July 13th. Created by The Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA), it is an opportunity to raise awareness of best safety practices in various lifting industries around the world.

Lifting operations can be dangerous if they are not performed correctly. By learning about safe lifting practices, you can help to protect yourself and your coworkers from harm. You can also improve the safety of your workplace and reduce the risk of accidents.

This year in particular, GLAD is taking a new approach. Instead of focusing on industry leaders, they are empowering individual end-users to take action. By focusing on the employees who operate lifting equipment, GLAD can ensure that safe and high-quality load lifting practices are implemented in every industry.

How Is Laser-View Technologies Playing a Part?

In order to play our part, we’re asking everyone who works with lifting equipment to take a moment on July 13th to learn about safe lifting practices, share personal experiences, and raise awareness about why this topic is so important. By working together, we can make a difference and create a safer world for everyone.

Additionally, Laser-View Technologies offers several systems that are designed to improve lifting safety and reliability. One such system is the Crane Sentry® Hoist Side Pull system.

Manufactured by Laser-View Technologies, the Crane Sentry® Hoist Side Pull system is designed to detect excessive side pull on a wire rope hoist or chain hoist. It uses sensors to detect side pulling and alert the end-user of the unstable condition. That way they can suspend lifting the load before an accident occurs.

The Crane Sentry® Hoist Side Pull system is a valuable safety tool that can help to prevent accidents caused by side pulling. By providing companies with safe and reliable tools like this, our goal is to create a safer industry, prevent future accidents, and educate end-users on how they can help play a part.
