The Importance of lifting gear inspections
All lifting equipment must be inspected before it’s used, even new equipment. This will help identify any manufacturing faults, or damage incurred during transit.
It should also be inspected in accordance with the relevant Australian Standard lifting equipment inspection or manufacturer’s specifications. Equipment should generally be inspected every three months, or more frequently if subjected to severe conditions.
If webbing-style lifting equipment is in frequent service, in addition to the three-monthly inspections, you should have the sling tested at least once every 12 months. This is required by the Australian Standards.
Inspections should be done by a certified person experienced in inspecting lifting equipment.
