FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

What is meant by load handling equipment?

Lifting accessories belong to the load handling devices. They are an interchangeable link between the hoist and the load and are often combined with slings. The Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and the DIN EN 13155 standard apply to lifting accessories.

Load handling devices can be used to grip, clamp, attach or magnetically attach loads. There are different types of load handling devices, these include, for example: load beams, lifting clamps (pliers), coil hooks, lifting grippers, loading forks.

They all share the common goal of making it easier and safer to move heavy objects.

Definition of load handling equipment according to Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC:

'A component or piece of equipment, other than that of the hoist, which enables the load to be gripped and which is placed between the machinery and the load or on the load itself, or which is intended to become an integral part of the load and which is placed on the market separately; lifting accessories shall also include slings and their components."

What are slings?

Slings are also a lifting device and serve as a detachable link between the hoist and the load or hoist and the lifting device.

Slings include, for example, round slings, lifting straps, sling ropes or sling chain chains, shackles and anchor points.

What needs to be considered when using load handling devices?

What needs to be checked before starting work?

Who is allowed to test load handling equipment?

Repairs and inspections may only be carried out by qualified persons or inspectors who use original spare parts. Continuous records must be kept of this.

Load handling devices must be maintained at the prescribed intervals for safe operation in accordance with the manufacturer's maintenance instructions.

For mandatory maintenance (usually at least once a year, depending on the frequency of use and severity), or if defects are found, you can send your load handling equipment to us for assessment and repair.
