Precautions & FAQ's

Polyester web slings, also known as webbing slings or synthetic web slings, are commonly used for lifting and material handling. To ensure the safety of personnel and the success of lifting operations, it’s important to take the following precautions when using polyester web slings:

  1. Inspection: Regularly inspect the polyester web sling for signs of wear, damage, or deformities. Do not use a sling that appears to be in poor condition. Inspections should be conducted before each use and periodically as required by safety regulations.

  2. Proper Sizing: Ensure that the web sling’s capacity (Working Load Limit, or WLL) and length are suitable for the intended application. Check the manufacturer’s specifications and guidelines for correct usage.

  3. Load Limits: Never exceed the web sling’s Working Load Limit (WLL). This information is usually marked on the sling or provided by the manufacturer.

    Edge Protection: Use suitable edge protection, such as wear pads or sleeves, when lifting loads with sharp edges to prevent damage to the web sling.

  5. Avoid Twisting and Knotting: Prevent the web sling from twisting, knotting, or bunching during the lifting operation, as this can weaken the webbing.

  6. Load Balance: Ensure that the load is evenly distributed across the web sling. Imbalanced loads can lead to stress concentrations and potential failure.

  7. Sling Configuration: Use the correct sling configuration for the type of load being lifted. Different configurations, such as choker, basket, or vertical hitch, have different load-carrying capacities.

  8. Training: Only qualified and trained personnel should operate cranes and handle lifting equipment, including web slings. Ensure that all personnel involved in the lifting operation are well-trained in safety procedures.

  9. Clear the Area: Ensure that the area beneath the load is clear of personnel and obstacles before lifting. Establish a designated work zone.

  10. Communication: Maintain clear and effective communication between the crane operator, riggers, and signalpersons to coordinate safe lifting operations.

  11. Emergency Procedures: Establish emergency procedures and know how to respond in case of accidents, malfunctions, or equipment failure.

  12. Records and Documentation: Keep records of inspections, maintenance, and usage of polyester web slings, and document any concerns or issues for future reference.

    Prioritizing safety when using polyester web slings is crucial to prevent accidents and injuries during lifting operations. Always follow safety regulations and industry standards, and consult with safety experts or engineers as needed to ensure proper usage.
