Instructions for use of flat webbing and round slings
Before use, select the correct flat webbing or round sling with regard to its application, capacity and the surface conditions of the load(see designation on the labels).
Examine the condiyion of the webbing sling or the round sling(improperly maintained or repaired slings, including unreadable labels, must be excluded from further use).
The permissible capacity of the slings must not be exceeded. (WLL in accordance with the applied lifting method)
Never shorten a sling by knotting.
Flat webbing slings and round slings must not be placed around shap edges or over rough surfaces. Use wear sleeves and edge protectors where necessary.
Flat webbing slings should be applied in such a way, that they carry the load over the full sling width.
Loads may only be placed on slings if damage is precluded . Do not drag slings from under loads-position the sling to correctly to ensure easy removal after use.
Position slings in such a way, that they hold the load securely. (displacement of the centre of gravity must be avoided)
In "choker" or direct lifts the round sling should be positioned so that it can from its "natural" inclination angle of 60 and that heat due to friction is avaoided.
Avoicd sharp jerks and jolts.
Do not drag the load across the floor with the sling ot drag the sling across tough surfaces.
