This section applies to slings used in conjunction with other material handling equipment for the movement of material by hoisting, in employments covered by this part. The types of slings covered are those made from alloy steel chain, wire rope, metal mesh, natural or synthetic fiber rope (conventional three strand construc- tion), and synthetic web (nylon, poly- ester, and polypropylene). (b) Definitions. Angle of loading is the inclination of a leg or branch of a sling measured from the horizontal or vertical plane as shown in Fig. N–184–5; provided that an angle of loading of five degrees or less from the vertical may be considered a vertical angle of loading. Basket hitch is a sling configuration whereby the sling is passed under the load and has both ends, end attach- ments, eyes or handles on the hook or a single master link. Braided wire rope is a wire rope formed by plaiting component wire ropes. Bridle wire rope sling is a sling com- posed of multiple wire rope legs with the top ends gathered in a fitting that goes over the lifting hook. Cable laid endless sling-mechanical joint is a wire rope sling made endless by joining the ends of a single length of cable laid rope with one or more metal- lic fittings. Cable laid grommet-hand tucked is an endless wire rope sling made from one length of rope wrapped six times around a core formed by hand tucking the ends of the rope inside the six wraps. Cable laid rope is a wire rope com- posed of six wire ropes wrapped around a fiber or wire rope core. Cable laid rope sling-mechanical joint is a wire rope sling made from a cable laid rope with eyes fabricated by press- ing or swaging one or more metal sleeves over the rope junction. Choker hitch is a sling configuration with one end of the sling passing under the load and through an end attach- ment, handle or eye on the other end of the sling. Coating is an elastomer or other suit- able material applied to a sling or to a sling component to impart desirable properties. Cross rod is a wire used to join spirals of metal mesh to form a complete fab- ric. (See Fig. N–184–2.) Designated means selected or assigned by the employer or the employer’s rep- resentative as being qualified to per- form specific duties. Equivalent entity is a person or orga- nization (including an employer) which, by possession of equipment, technical knowledge and skills, can perform with equal competence the same repairs and tests as the person or organization with which it is equated. Fabric (metal mesh) is the flexible por- tion of a metal mesh sling consisting of a series of transverse coils and cross rods. Female handle (choker) is a handle with a handle eye and a slot of such di- mension as to permit passage of a male handle thereby allowing the use of a metal mesh sling in a choker hitch.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
