  • Always inspect all sling components prior to each use.
  • Ensure that chain is protected from any sharp corners on the load.
  • Ensure that the master link articulates freely on the hook of the crane or other lifting appliance.
  • Never tip load hooks.  The load should always be supported correctly in the bowl of the hook.
  • Always use the correct size sling for the load, allowing for the included angle and the possibility of unequal loading.
  • Personnel must keep all body parts from between the sling and the load, and from between the sling and the crane/hoist hook.  Persons shall never ride the chain sling/rope sling or web sling or the load during lifting or while suspended.  Persons must stand clear of all loads while lifting or while suspended.  During lifting, with or without the load, personnel must be alert for possible snagging of the load or the chain sling.ic04.gif (79 bytes)next page
