An Attachment sling is similar in design and appearance to a round sling. The critical difference is that an attachment sling is certified for use as fall protection PPE and is manufactured in accordance with EN 795 Class B, EN 354.
An attachment sling serves the same purpose as a permanent anchor point or dover clamp in that it allows the user to connect their full-body harness to a secure anchor via restraint lanyards, shock absorber lanyards, or inertia reels. The attachment sling is used in situations where the structure can be choked using the sling. With the beam choked, the attachment sling can then be connected to the fall arrest system.
Like all PPE, attachment slings must be inspected and certified every 6 months. Hoistech can offer inspection services at our premises in Dublin or can have one of our mobile units call to site for you.
