Cranes and lifting accessories such as slings must be of adequate strength, tested and subject to the required examinations and inspections. There are strict legal requirements concerning the thorough examination of all cranes. Thorough examination of cranes, including testing, should be carried out in accordance with BS 7121. Where the crane is hired from a third party, the user should ensure that the thorough examinations are undertaken at the required intervals.
