Crane slingsCranes, which include overhead cranes, hoists, winches and cranes, are material handling equipment (UTB) that enable various loads to be moved by means of slings. Choosing the right type of sling allows for efficient and safe transport of specific goods.

A crane sling operator, or hook driver, must have an appropriate UDT licence, which is granted by the Office of Technical Inspection. They can be obtained after completing an appropriate course and passing an exam before a UDT commission.
