Height Safety Inspections
Under the Working at Height Regulations, you have a legal duty to ensure your fall protection equipment is inspected on a regular basis. And with working at height a key issue for health and safety officials, it’s essential to take those responsibilities seriously.
Even a small cut in a lanyard can reduce its strength by up to 40%, so choosing an experienced height safety engineer – who knows what to look for – is an essential precaution.
Several pieces of legislation emphasise the need to keep your height safety measures in good repair:
- Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) at Work Regulations 1992
- Work at Height Regulations 2005
- Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998
Meanwhile, BS EN 365:2004 says that all PPE for working at height should be examined at least once a year – and some manufacturers recommend this should be more often.
Qualified engineers; compliant process
Our qualified height safety engineers have all been trained by safety equipment manufacturers to spot signs of degradation. And we employ a standard inspection methodology, designed to satisfy:
- Manufacturer recommendations
- Detailed HSE inspection guidance
- Relevant British Standards
- Legislation on working at height, work equipment and PPE
That means you can have peace of mind – that your height safety equipment is protecting your people as it should, and that you have clear evidence of a compliant inspection regime.
