The National Safety Council uses June to observe National Safety Month, which focuses on reducing leading causes of injury and death at work, on the road, and in our homes and communities. Last week we discussed how using colored aluminum tags can help label dangerous areas in the workplace. This week we want to focus on the OSHA-NSC alliance. One of OSHA’s newer requirements and one of National Band & Tag’s newest product lines is Wire Rope and Chain Sling Tags!
These tags help keep workers in the rigging and lifting industry safe. OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) requires that all wire rope and chain slings be identified at all times with specific information such as the work load limit, angle limitations and vertical, choker, and basket limitations. Our tags help keep workers safe with proper identification which is important in this industry with large pieces of material and equipment being lifted.
