Keeping Records Keeps You Prepared
We know that routine inspections are essential to the overall performance and efficiency of slings and other lifting equipment. To reduce the likelihood of problems caused by ordinary wear and tear, it is important to routinely inspect these items. To stay compliant with OSHA standards, it is also important to make detailed inspection records. Be prepared to present your inspection records to an OSHA representative in the event of an audit.
