Towards the end of last year OSHA updated its Sling Regulation. They Eliminated load capacity tables from slings and instead require the manufactures to clearly mark the maximum load capacity permanently onto the sling. Users still shall not overload a sling and must replace the the load capacity tags if they are ripped off or unclear. This regulation is part of OSHA standards improvement project, which strives to improve regulations that are confusing, duplicative, inconsistent, or outdated.
