FAULTY SLINGS AND RIGGING HARDWARE CAN RESULT IN CATASTROPHIC ACCIDENTS AND PROPERTY DAMAGE
Continued use of faulty slings and rigging equipment is an accident waiting to happen. This liability can be avoided through routine inspections. If any sling or rigging component is in question, it should be removed from service immediately and evaluated for repair or replaced. Safety in the lifting industry is a matter of life or death – It is simply not worth taking the risk of working with a product that has been damaged or overloaded.
In addition to helping you comply with applicable OSHA and ASME standards, a scheduled inspection by Hanes Supply Lifting Professionals ensures rigging safety and is a great way to identify process improvement opportunities. Our sales associates do not often get the opportunity to speak with the workers actually using our products in lifts. The inspection process offers a great communication channel to better understand equipment needs for making your lift easier, safer and more efficient.
WE ALSO OFFER COURSES IN SAFE RIGGING PROCEDURES
We often find that our inspection reveals misuse of rigging equipment. This is an opportunity to train users who are not familiar with proper rigging procedures. Your Sales Representative or our Corporate Rigging Trainer can arrange for training at your facility or ours. Click here to learn more about our safety training and seminars.
