Safe lifting starts with choosing the right equipment. Lifting products are strongly regulated by European Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC, which sets high demands on suppliers of lifting products concerning:
• Requirements on product performance
• Product marking

• prevailing weather conditions and
• the way in which the load is strapped or slung.
Lifting accessories which are not dismantled after use shall be clearly marked so as to inform the user of the characteristics of the equipment.

Selecting soft lifting slings
Soft lifting slings are mainly used without other lifting components although they can, when needed, with advantage be used in combination with grade 80, grade 100 or other approved lifting components. Soft lifting slings produced in accordance with EN 1492-1 and -2 are color-coded for working load limit (WLL).
