||The offshore industry uses a variety of containers for the transportation of equipment. These containers are permanently fitted with their own lifting attachments, which are subjected to repeated dynamic loading in a hostile corrosive environment. In the United Kingdom, five-legged wire rope sling sets are used, while in other countries, chain attachments are prevalent. The Health and Safety Laboratory measured the dynamic loads on steel wire ropes resulting from various lifting operations between a semi-submersible installation and a supply vessel. Measurements were deliberately taken in heavy seas to identify the worst loading conditions which could occur. Findings are discussed.
