Dedicated to our loyal readers

Lifting Africa is dedicated to providing the reader with a platform to discuss and resolve problems and issues relevant to the African lifting industry. Lifting Africa will assist the reader, with compliance to all legal and statutory requirements in the lifting industry. Our aim is to improve safety in the industry.

Training is very important to the industry and ourselves. We will, therefore, focus consistently on training. This will include an annual conference covering all aspect relevant to the industry. Focus areas are case studies of previous accidents in the industry, to prevent this from happening in the future. To complement the magazine, we have introduced @LiftingEquipmentIndustry, a WhatsApp group that will allow members to discuss related topics. Members of the group are also encouraged to share interesting projects, experiences and concerns.

The magazine also features under the hook equipment, lifting tackle and ancillary equipment, repairs, testing, inspection and training companies.
