Slings should be visually inspected before each use to ensure their effectiveness. Improper use of hoisting equipment, including slings, may result in overloading, excessive speed (e.g., taking up slack with a sudden jerk, shock loading), or sudden acceleration or deceleration of equipment.

There are generally six types of slings: chain, wire rope, metal mesh, natural fiber rope, synthetic fiber rope, or synthetic web. Slings tend to be placed into three groups: chain, wire rope and mesh, and fiber rope web.

Each type has its own particular advantages and disadvantages. Factors to consider when choosing the best sling for the job include size, weight, shape, temperature, and sensitivity of the material being moved, and the environmental conditions under which the sling will be used.
