We look at the minimum requirements that manufacturers, suppliers, repairers and hirers of equipment must meet and the tests that must be carried out to ensure the safety of
their equipment. Learners who achieve the course objectives will, upon completion, be able to identify, understand the advantages and disadvantages, and carry out inspection, care, storage and maintenance of lifting tackle such as steelwire ropes, chain slings, textile/webbing slings and miscellaneous lifting tackle including shackles, clamps, eyebolts and hooks.
