Chain and Strap Inspection Form
Regular equipment inspections are essential for the success of any EHS program. Chains and straps are just pieces in a larger piece of equipment, but they deserve just as must attention as the major components.
Oftentimes, chains and straps are responsible for securing heavy loads containing dangerous equipment. If they are not in good condition, these safety restraints can cause fatal incidents. That’s why it’s so important to inspect them on a regular basis.
This inspection form is for logging your weekly chain and strap inspections, which may involve destroying and replacing equipment. The last thing you want is to have faulty straps in rotation for workers to use.
Filling out this simple form each week can help you keep track of how often you need to replace chains and straps. That way, you can ensure that you always have enough on hand for workers to secure loads safely.
