Safety and Effective Operating Practices with Flat Poly Web Slings from Olsen Chain & Cable.
Load Capacity, Training, and Care
Never use any piece of lifting or rigging equipment in ways that it is not engineered to operate, whether from a functional, “proper use” standpoint or from a weight limit standpoint. The more comfortable you are with the equipment you’re using, the more proper training your crew has received on tested and effective lifting and rigging set ups, and the more assertive you are at enforcing strict standards for safety in your operation, the more likely you are to maintain a safe operation that protects your people.
On each web sling from Olsen Chain & Cable, you’ll find a heavy duty laminated tag that holds up to both daily use and all weather conditions. These tags give you all the information you need to make sure you’re protecting your people and your operation.
Safety depends on knowledge. Be sure that every member of your crew is trained in the proper use, maintenance, and protocols for every step in your operation. From how slings are stored to how they’re used; from how a crew member selects the right sling to how to know it’s time to retire a sling — proper training is essential if you’re going to protect your people.
Your crew should be regularly inspecting all of your lifting equipment. Your calendar should regularly be planning for official inspections. And issues that need to be addressed should be addressed before equipment is put back into rotation in your operation. Inspections, maintenance, and refurbishment should all be seen as essential pieces of your process.
If you ever have a question about the proper use of a web sling from Olsen Chain & Cable — or any lifting, rigging, or safety apparatus for your operation — call our City Desk.
