Chains and Slings Safety Tips
Ensuring that your chains and slings are safe for use on the job site is important to maximise productivity while avoiding accidents. Here are our top five tips when using chains and slings:
- Always have equally distributed loads
Uneven loads can damage your equipment.
- Operate using smooth movements
Try to avoid quick stops, drops, lifts and impacts while using your height safety equipment.
- Remove knots and twists
When securing your load, always remove knots and twists in your rope or chain as they compromise the integrity of the equipment.
- Identify sharp corners and edges
Inspect your load for sharp edges and either pad them or use protectors to avoid contact with your chains and slings.
- Keep them clean
Dirt, oil and other substances will affect the lifespan of your equipment. Keep your chains and slings in a tool box or other designated compartment to keep them clean.
