Safety Harness Inspection Service


Fall Arrest systems are required to be inspected and in some cases tested on a periodic basis. This inspection and testing must be carried out by a recognised competent person.

Safety Harness Inspections offer a thorough inspection and tagging service for safety harnesses, lanyards and associated equipment.

All items undergo a detailed examination in accordance with Australian standards. AS/NZS1891.4:2009

AS/NZS1891.4:2009 demands that formal inspection procedures should be put in place by employers to ensure that personal fall protection equipment is given a thorough inspection and examination by a height safety equipment inspector before first use and at intervals not exceeding 6 months (more frequently if in hazardous conditions or if recommended by manufacturer), and after circumstances liable to have affected the integrity and safety of the equipment.
