  3. Rigging equipment • Inspect rigging equipment: • Before each shift • As necessary during use • Remove rigging equipment: • If defective • When not in use 2a

  4. Safe working load • Recommended safe load • Mark custom lifting accessories • Proof test to 125 percent 2b

  5. Competent person and inspection • Inspect before each shift • Additional inspections • Remove from service 3a

  6. Alloy steel chains • Attached ID information • Accessory capacity equal to chain • Rated capacity in Table H-1 • Chain link wear in Table H-2 4a

  7. Inspect alloy steel chains based on • Frequency of sling use • Severity of service conditions • Nature of lifts made • Experience from other slings 4b

  8. Sling Inspection • Inspect slings every 12 months • Maintain records of inspections 4c

  9. Wire rope • Safe working load • Protruding ends of stands • Don’t use knots • Visible broken wires 5a

  10. U-bolts • U-bolts use Table H-20 • “U” section 6a

  11. Slings general requirements • Don’t use knots • Prevent kinking • Balance loads 7a

  12. Slings general requirements • Use padded slings • Don’t shock load slings • Watch your fingers 7b

  13. Sling attachments and safe operation • Fiber wire core rope slings • Nonfiber core wire rope slings • Proof test 8a

  14. Natural or synthetic fiber rope slings • Table H-15, 16, 17, and 18 apply • Follow mfg. recommendations • Don’t use knots • –20 degrees to 180 degrees 9a
