Hi All,

Does anyone have any unique ideas on how to provide visual indicators, which would help demonstrate to a third party that lifting accessories (chains, strops etc) are within date of their mandatory inspection. We have all the ususals i.e. independant inspections, training, chains tags, certification etc.

What I am looking for is something highly visual and eye catching, so when carrying out site a inspection, if lifting accessories have not been inspected it is obviously apparent to the auditor.

I want to remove the excuse of ignorance on the part of the user.

Thanks in advnce

Colour coded cable ties, each colour represents a period in time

Slight variation on the idea suggested by Chris but
something similar to the test date tags they use on gas cylinders, as shown in this link

Your engineering insurance company that does your statutory testing should put coloured tags on the equipment for you and most will supply you with a board that shows the colour code for this inspection period.  If yours doesn't then you need to change your service provider.
