Mazzella Companies Launches Online Sling Inspection Course

Mazzella Companies recently launched a new online course to complement the Lifting U™ brand of classroom and online training programs. Sling Inspections is the second addition to the library of online courses available at www.LiftingU.com.

Mazzella’s Sling Inspections course consists of eight lessons and focuses on OSHA 1910.184 Slings and ASME B30.9 Slings standards. Each lesson features hands-on video inspections, performed by certified Mazzella Inspectors, to demonstrate proper inspection technique and identify ASME’s removal from service criteria.

“All of the tagging, inspection, and removal from service criteria is from applicable OSHA and ASME standards. We had all of this information already available on our website, but we realized that we could package this into an online course that was engaging and easy to share with others,” says Tom Horner, Corporate Rigging Inspection Manager of Mazzella Companies.

Other topics covered in each lesson, include: inspection frequencies, sling tag requirements, inspection criteria, disposal of damaged/failed slings, and best practices for sling use and maintenance.

“Not only did we rely on information from industry standards, but also on the expertise and experience of our inspectors and trainers. The video demonstrations and real-world examples of damaged slings set this course apart from others we’ve seen,” says Mike Minissale, Director of Marketing of Mazzella Companies.

The Sling Inspections curriculum includes:

  • Lesson 1: Wire Rope Sling Inspection
  • Lesson 2: Synthetic Web Sling Inspection
  • Lesson 3: Alloy Chain Sling Inspection
  • Lesson 4: Synthetic Roundsling Inspection
  • Lesson 5: High-Performance Roundsling Inspection
  • Lesson 6: Metal Mesh Sling Inspection
  • Lesson 7: Synthetic Rope Sling Inspection
  • Lesson 8: Choosing a Third-Party Inspection Company

Mazzella Companies will continue to offer more online lifting and rigging courses in the future. To enroll in Lifting U™ and learn more about their classroom and job site training programs, please visit www.LiftingU.com.
