A provider of Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) services to the energy industry, Stirling Group, has gained Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA) accreditation, becoming an associate technical training member company.
Verified training courses for overhead lifting equipment
The LEEA is a leading representative body for those involved in the lifting industry. LEEA approval is given to companies that meet rigorous professional standards for the needs of the energy industry. The LEEA’s Training Accreditation Scheme was launched in April 2009. It is designed to allow its member companies to offer a range of independently verified training courses for staff involved in the use or management of overhead lifting equipment. This is something that Stirling Group’s approved lifting courses have evidently done successfully.
Developing and delivering high-quality training programmes
Headquartered in the UAE and operating in 25 countries, Stirling Group has offices in the UK, Kurdistan, Algeria, Iraq, Malaysia, and Australia. This LEEA membership approval is just one of the industry accreditations received by Stirling Group, issued to develop and deliver high-quality training programmes since these are essential for operations in the energy sector. Stirling Group’s accreditations include: NEBOSH, IOSH, Industry Qualifications and OPITO.
A site audit and instructor evaluation also secured Stirling Group with ‘Accredited Training Company’ status – a scheme which was recently launched by LEEA.
HSE training solutions to ensure compliance in the oil and gas sector
Mike Palmer, Stirling Group’s Global Head of Workforce Development, said: “We have a major role to play in the reduction of risk and to the safety and health of our clients, our own employees, our contractors, partners, and also in the protection of the environments within which we work. We are continually tailoring our offering of HSE training solutions to ensure compliance in the hazardous, high-risk and hostile environments experienced in the oil and gas sector.”
