Gary Shepherd, president of the GEA, commented: “Knowledge of Health and Safety, British Standards and the Lifting Equipment Regulations together with product training from the lift manufacturer leads to the competence required to work as a professional vehicle lift engineer. It’s our intention to raise the standards within our industry. Vehicle lifts must be installed and maintained correctly by a competent person and this assessment is the first step in measuring an engineer’s competence.” (Tyres & Accessories/Staffordshire, U.K.)
