5 Quick & Easy Sling Checks

Slings, like hoists, come under the LOLER regulation 1998, which means they need to be visually inspected every 6 months by a competent person. However, a lot can change with slings within a 6-month period especially in a high usage environment, so what is really important is that before each and every sling transfer is made, the carer carrying out the transfer must visually inspect the sling before they use it.
