The Lift Inspectors Association of South Africa was established by a group of seasoned individuals in the lift industry in an effort to create an appropriate forum to discuss and regulate critical and controversial issues, as well as provide a pillar of support to fellow colleagues. Since its establishment, LIASA has matured into an influential organisation duly recognised by the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA) as a "Category A" Voluntary Association. Through effective communication, periodic meetings and constructive discussions, the members are able to create new strategies of understanding and enhancing the standards that govern the industry. The combined expertise and decades of experience offered by the members forms an integral source of motivation to emerging Lift Inspectors and support to the various governing bodies.
