1 Safety Meeting Topic #4 Rigging The functions of rigging are to move or support material. When rigging loads, employees must be able to recognize hazardous conditions, such as: Improper sling or attachments for the type of load to be lifted and the environment in which it is being lifted; Worn slings and attachments or those with damage such as cracks, kinks, bends, cuts, gouges, and frayed fibers; and Improper storage of slings and misuses such as resting of loads on the sling or dragging of slings across abrasive floors. Employees need to identify and avoid hazardous work practices, such as: Riding slings or walking under suspended loads. Using improperly repaired or reconditioned slings and attachments or slings and attachments that must be removed from service. TYPES OF SLINGS: There are several varieties of slings, including: alloy steel chain, wire rope, metal mesh, natural fiber rope, synthetic fiber rope, synthetic web, and synthetic round slings. Each type of sling has its advantages and disadvantages. Many factors come into play when choosing the best sling for the task at hand. These include size, strength, flexibility, and weight, as well as suitability for the work environment, shapes of the load, and environmental conditions in which the sling will be used. Below are the six types of slings. Alloy Steel Chain Slings A sling that is durable in almost all conditions, will mold to the shape of most loads, and easy to adjust. Chains are difficult to inspect, will damaged some loads, are heavy and bulky. Wire Rope Slings A sling that is easy to find, has a good strength to size ratio, and easy to inspect. Wire rope is stiff, hard to bend around small objects and sharp corners. Wire rope may not grip slick items such as pipe. Metal Mesh Slings A sling that is flat, flexible metal mesh weave that resists kinking, tangling and twisting. Metal Mesh may not grip slick items such as pipe. Natural and Synthetic Fiber Rope Slings A sling with a good strength to size ratio that is easy to inspect, and will mold to the shape of the load. Rope slings

2 are subject to heat and chemical damage, will stretch under load, and are subject to cuts or tears. Synthetic Web Slings A sling that is extremely flexible and light weight, which will mold to the shape of the load. Synthetic slings are subject to heat and chemical damage, will stretch under load, and are subject to cuts or tears. Synthetic Round Slings - A sling that is extremely flexible and light weight, which will mold to the shape of the load. Synthetic slings are subject to heat and chemical damage, will stretch under load, and are subject to cuts or tears. Inspections of slings and related rigging hardware are to be done before each use. Any sling that is found unfit for use shall be red tagged and returned to the shop. Some of the things to look for when inspection slings; Missing or illegible sling identification Melting or charring on any part of the sling Holes, tears, cuts, snags, or elongation of the sling Broken or worn stitching in load-bearing splices Excessive abrasive wear Knots in any part of the sling Excessive pitting or corrosion, or cracked, distorted or broken fittings Distortion of chain links Visible indications that cause doubt as to the strength of the sling, such as loss of color that may indicate the potential for ultraviolet light damage Distortion, kinking, bird caging, or other evidence of damage to the wire rope structure. Wire rope shall not be used if, in any length of eight diameters, the total number of visible broken wires exceeds 10 percent of the total number of wires During the lift, avoid shock loading by taking up the slack in the sling slowly. Apply power cautiously so as to prevent jerking at the beginning of the lift, and accelerate or decelerate slowly. Use taglines that are long enough to control the load, but still keeps people out of the swing of the load. When using a sling there are several key points to keep in mind: Is the sling free of kinks or any other damage? Is the sling rated for the lift? Is the load balanced to prevent slipping? Is the sling securely attached to the load? Are the sling and the load protected from damage during the lift? Is there a clear path for the movement of the load? Are employees and other persons kept clear of the danger zone during the lift?

3 SUMMARY There are good practices to follow to protect yourself while using slings to move materials. First, learn as much as you can about the materials with which you will be working. Slings come in many different types, one of which is right for your purpose. Second, analyze the load to be moved - in terms of size, weight, shape, temperature, and sensitivity - then choose the sling which best meets those needs. Third, always inspect all the equipment before and after a move. Fourth, use safe lifting practices. Use the proper lifting technique for the type of sling and the type of load.
