Procedural Compliance
Since 1971, Western Sling has served the rigging, towing, cargo control, material handling, and industrial equipment needs of the Rocky Mountain Region and beyond. Decades of experience and continual learning has made one crucial thing clear: every customer and partner is unique and, thus, each one cannot be treated in the same, “cookie cutter” fashion. Rather, each individual and company requires their unique needs to be addressed, responded to, and complied with in a professional and timely manner.

In that spirit, we recognize that there are a variety of common needs that must be customized accordingly, and we are uniquely positioned to follow your needs and directives. Here are a few that we consider:

  • Load testing by ISO/IEC accredited calibration devices and certificates of test
  • Certificate of conformance
  • Serial number traceability
  • Special tagging requirements
  • Certification of inspection for suspect/counterfeit (S/CI) or defective (DI) items
  • Country of origin declarations
  • N.A.F.T.A. as well as other trade agreement documents
  • Packaging requirements to ISPM 15
  • Exporting capabilities to all seven continents

Device Calibration
All of our load test devices and equipment are calibrated once per year to certify our test facility to ASTM E4-10. The calibration firm that certifies our equipment has the latest ISO 17025 accreditation, which means that we hit the highest quality and consistency standard.

Liability Insurance
We carry liability insurance for completed industrial lifting and rigging products from an insurance company accredited by A.M. Best as A- (Excellent).

Quality Assurance Program and Manual
Western Sling & Supply has a comprehensive quality program documented by a written QA manual. Due to internet theft and plagiarism, we have chosen not to link to this manual. A copy can be issued to you upon request.
