Operating instructions for your slings

To help you being on the safe side when slinging loads, we have compiled some application instructions for slings and lifting gear.

Slinging of loads

  • Does the safety catch of the load hook move properly?
  • The safety catch of the hook must lock!
  • Report any defect to the crane operator/supervisor

Can the material be transported in this state using the crane (intact packaging, stable wooden pallet, no loose parts)?

Sling chains, belts or ropes tightly around the material to be transported, so that the load will not be shifted when lifted.

  • Signal to crane operator “slowly lift” by hand
  • Supervise the lifting operation from short and safe distance
  • If the load tilts over or if attachment points shift: signal “Stop” by hand
  • Never correct floating load by hand!
  • Is the sling gear undamaged (no cracks, cuts, crushes, noses)?
  • Can the load be transported using the selected sling gear?
  • Where to attach the sling gear at the material to be transported?
  • The material to be transported must be transported in balanced position. Take the center of gravity of the load into account!
  • Safe hold
  • Alternative places, if the load tends to make uncontrolled movements
  • Eye contact to the crane operator
  • No danger of falling down and being trapped
  • If the load floats narrowly above the floor, check whether: the load is suspended balanced and the attachment points remain stable?
  • If yes: Signal “Lift” by hand
  • Leave the swivel range of the crane
  • Never stay below the floating load

Advice on safe slinging with chain slings

The shortened load-bearing chain leg suspended in the shortening clutch must leave the shortening clutch downward in the alignment. If the load-bearing leg leaves the shortening clutch upward, the chain sling and the clutch will be overstressed, which will result in the lifting chain tearing or the clutch breaking off.

Chains should be only loaded in straight, untwisted and unknotted condition. Select the attachment points so that the end fittings, the chain links and the suspension links are not exposed to bending stresses.

Overly strong patting will once again reduce the natural stop angle of about 120°, which will lead to an unnecessary additional stress of the sling gear or lifting gear.

Stresses induced by sudden lifting or falling of loads will overload end fittings or single legs of the sling gear due to the strong forces of acceleration, which in extreme cases will result in deformations or tearing of the leg.

For lifting loads in narrow places, slingers should attach a fiber rope or a stable string functioning as a “drawstring” at one end or both ends of the load in order to control the lateral movement of the load.

Before lifting a load, slinger and crane operator should agree on a signal code for mutual understanding which also allows for quickly carrying out the proper maneuver in emergencies.

The load should always be put down on a place prepared with mats and never directly on the lifting device (damaging); this allows for the quick and easy removal of the sling gear.

To prevent unused chain legs from getting caught or jammed somewhere during the lifting operation, they should be hooked or tied back into the suspension link. Unused chain suspensions hanging in the crane hook should always be hooked back.
