1. When loads are lifted on a sling the general idea is to get the load to be as secured in the air as it was on ground

2. The loads must be satisfactorily secured by the slings

(a) Loads are completely contained by the slings (e.g. Bags in nets)

(b) Use fixed lifting pendants or lugs if available

(c) Ropes or wire slings must be completely wrapped around the loads – no loads should be left resting in loose bights of the line

(d) When using specialized components, they must be properly attached to the cargo, and the manufacturer’s instructions should be followed

3. The slings must be sufficiently attached to the lifting appliances 

4. The loads must be slung so that they will not collapse or change form when they are lifted 

5. The load must not damage the sling, possibly causing the slings to part. Use stuffing or padding at susceptible points or sharp edges 

6. Ensure that the loads are not to be damaged by the sling 

7. All lifting parts should have their pivoting points as near to the vertical as possible for a clean lift by the crane
