Inspect chain slings and accessories before each use and before placing into storage. Check for visible faults in links and hooks and distortion of fittings.
A competent person should inspect chain slings periodically, according to the manufacturer's recommendations. For record keeping purposes it is useful if each chain has a metal tag with an identification number and load limit information. Information about the chain length and other characteristics and an inspection schedule should be recorded in a log book.
a) Wear exceeds 15% of a link diameter.
Cut, nicked, cracked, gouged, burned, or corrosion pitted.
c) Twisted or bent.
d) Stretched. Links tend to close up and get longer.
Add a badge to your website or intranet so your workers can quickly find answers to their health and safety questions.
