At Superior Lifting Specialists, we believe in the importance of providing Rigging Safety Seminars to our customers. It is imperative as well as required that the end user is trained in the proper selection and inspection of all lifting slings and rigging hardware, ASME B30.9, ASME B30.26, OSHA 1926.20 (b)(4). Please see below for areas and topics covered in our 90 minute session.
OSHA guidelines require that a “competent” person performs an OSHA compliance survey of lifting slings at least once per year. These inspections must be recorded and maintained for each individual sling.
Superior Lifting Specialists strongly recommends that a daily inspection be performed by a competent person designated by the employer, project foreman or maintenance. This will help ensure that the slings being used are safe and in serviceable condition.
