Chain Sling Testing

Inspect and Tag have test benches that will do up to 40 Tonne. We take your safety seriously and offer the 12 monthly test inspections only by testing the lifting equipment on the test bench.

A client asked for us to certify their lifting equipment. This was a urgent job as they need the register to submit with a proposal for a contract. Inspect and Tag is a family company and tries to satisfy each and every need even if extra shifts have to be arranged for this to happen.

The trained personnel who went to site to collect the chains , swift lifts and shackles was very shocked to find the most recent chain was tested April 2009.This is a long period of 5 + years – the lifting equipment had not been certified . Inspect and Tag left loan equipment to assist in the process of this certifying.

There was some long shifts done and the first delivery of 10 chains was returned to the client, tested, any repairs carried out and certified in 2 days later at 4:45am for the day’s work ahead. As this client was some 180Km from our workshop it was not possible to have them returned the next day which we try for.

Sadly this unmaintained equipment could have resulted in multiply deaths. It shows up the need to stay by the Australian Standards and keep your equipment maintained.
