Hi Kiri,

If you look in some catalogues, e.g. Nobles - Lifting & Rigging Equipment, Technical Services & Engineering Design, some of the products state the load factors.  Some products may have a factor of 4 or 5 to failure.

I don't have a copy, but maybe you could find more details on the factors for wear and tear, unequal load in:
