Reply To: Sling replacement indicators

Hi Liz
You could check recommendations on length of use. with the supplier if you can find out which firm the slings came from. With the the keyhole clip slings its important to test that they still click into place firmly as well as checking fabric.. Slings that are 10 years old would generally be worn out but it does depend on the number of times they are used.The guidelines tend not to be specific on times but you could check on line at ACC or Worksafe.

Kind regards
