Falls are the leading cause of death for construction workers, accounting for 350 of the 937 construction fatalities recorded in 2015. These and other facts about fall hazards are highlighted in new resources from OSHA that employers can use in their discussions with employees during the National Safety Stand-Down. Two videos have been posted on the Stand-Down homepage and a series of infographics can be downloaded from OSHA’s Fall Prevention Campaign webpage. We also encourage posting of the new videos and infographics on social media using the hashtag #StandDown4Safety #crewscrane #training #fallprotection #ladder #death #construction

Let us help you with your fall protection, ladder safety and other training needs for you or your company. “Climbing safe to reach back to the ground”

Home made sling?

The question is does it look safe? According to the person who made it, they would say “YES”. My question to you is do you think it looks safe? Below are some pictures from recent sling inspection. There is one sling take special attention to the way it was made. The other pictures are of some of the bad slings found during the inspection.

Over the years I have inspected thousands of slings. Ranging from web, wire, synthetic, nylon, chain and even metal mesh. But every now and then along comes a creative person who has just enough wire and some cable clips and presto! Wire rope sling.

No matter what they were using it to pull, suspend, hold, or tug with, is it really safe and will anything bad happen? Who really knows? Well we do. We have pull tested all different types of slings to see if they meet the safety factor established by multiple entities that govern slings. What we have found is when manufactured correctly the slings met and exceeded the safety factor. But what is really interesting is that even when slings were cut, torn, holes, weld splatter etc… they came close or even sometimes exceeded the recommended working load limit (WLL).

But it is very safe to say that this sling (homemade) would not meet or exceed the safety factor established for wire rope slings.

If you are in need of having your slings inspected and want to make sure something like this is not lurking in your inventory, contact us at CCTI. 336.337.1043 or

Safe rigging and safe slings makes for a safe day.
