Have had a tiny bit of success. Euromedical have contacted their suppliers and this is the reply.
‘I have talked to our supplier of slings and he said the following:
If you cannot read the label anymore on the slings with the purple label, then they are past their use by date
If you have more recent slings on site with a white label, their is a possibility that you could replace the label.’
(This is just for their particular slings though.)
Does anyone get their slings ‘load tested’?
Do the slings, as part of the business, depreciate financially yearly? Maybe we should align replacement with depreciation? (This logic might appeal to the accountants?)
I think I will send out an email to all suppliers and see what other responses I get. Watch this space.
