Wire Rope Clips

PART 15: RIGGING

Occupational Health and Safety Regulation

GENERAL REQUIREMENTS
Wire rope
splices
15.23 Wire rope splices made using wire rope clips must
(a) use double the number of clips specified by the manufacturer or Table 15-
2 for a single loop termination, when forming a lap splice, or
(b) use the number of clips specified by the manufacturer or Table 15-2 for
each loop termination, when forming a double loop splice.
(1) A turnback eye splice made using wire rope clips must use the
number of clips
(a) specified by the manufacturer for each turnback eye termination,
or
(b) if not specified by the manufacturer, specified in Table 15-2.
(2) A lap splice made using wire rope clips must use double the number
of clips
(a) specified by the manufacturer for a turnback eye termination, or
(b) if not specified by the manufacturer, specified in Table 15-2.

Explanatory Notes:
The intent of current section 15.23(a) is that twice the number of wire rope clips required to form a
turnback eye termination must be used to form a lap splice in wire rope. However, there has been some
misinterpretation of this requirement by stakeholders.
The purpose of the amendments is to clarify that twice the number of wire rope clips specified by the wire
rope clip manufacturer for a turnback eye termination must be used for making lap splices or, in the
absence of the wire rope clip manufacturer’s instructions, twice the number of wire rope clips specified in
Table 15-2 must be used.
The term “loop termination”, which is currently used in section 15.23, will be replaced by the term
“turnback eye termination” in order to achieve consistency with terminology used by wire rope clip
manufacturers.
The amendments are for clarification purposes only; there will be no change in the intent of the regulation.
