Abstract Guidance is given on the construction and use of cable-laid, single-part slings and grommets developed for use in the off-shore oil industry, which are made up of 6 unit ropes laid as outers over one core unit rope and which are too large to be tested to destruction on existing equipment. Guidance is given on construction and splicing of cable-laid slings and construction, termination, seizing and calculated minimum breaking load of grommets. Subsequently details are given of working load limit, safe working load, loads in sling legs, testing and certification, identification marking, storage and inspection, operating life and annual thorough examination, record of lifts. An appendix gives a model certificate of wire rope test and examination.
