For several workers in the United States and abroad, their lives depend on safe and reliable lifting devices. Companies take this responsibility to heart because safety is number one when it comes to construction workers. One way to keep safety at the forefront is with lifting slings. Lifting slings can be found in a variety of designs, sizes, and fabrications. They are also used for various lifting and rigging jobs. Some of these lifting slings include chain slings, wire rope rigging slings, overheard crane slings, industrial lifting chains, and cargo slings all used for heavy duty uses. For lighter weight uses there are nylon lifting slings and polyester round slings.
