Audit

The version control will be maintained by the SHEQ team and is controlled via the Safety Equipment Inspections Document 2073838157-15.
Chain slings must be inspected quarterly, with particular attention being paid to the following

Inspect every link individually for signs of wear, twisting, stretching, gouging or nicks.

Assess the degree of damage and refer to the manufacturer’s instructions for allowable degree of wear.

Inspect the load-bearing points for any sort of wear or distortion eg widening of any hook throat opening

Clean the sling before inspection if required so that faults can be easily seen and felt.

All connections must be inspected for signs of wear at the load- bearing points, any excessive movement of the load pin and for poor rotation of the body halves around the load pin.

Mark damaged chain links clearly to indicate rejection and remove from service until repaired

Any damaged fittings can be replaced but damaged chain must be destroyed.
