Before you reach for that trusty chain sling, are you conducting a proper pre-use inspection? Be sure to give a thorough visual to the full body of the sling, including all end fastenings. Other potential problem areas include:
- Areas of excessive wear
- Defective Welds
- Increase in length (stretch)
Follow along with ITI Technical Director, Mike Parnell, for some of the finer points. Enjoy!
