Connecting Synthetic Slings

Crane Hotline magazine recently published a great article from the Rigging Institute on the proper way to connect synthetic slings.  The article covers never tying knots, always using rigging hardware to connect slings, and references the ASME B30.9 "Slings" standard. This article will make a great training handout and discussion piece at your next sling safety meeting.
