Check and inspection – remember the annual inspection

Your fall protection equipment must be inspected once a year by a Competent Person trained by the manufacturer or an authorized representative of the manufacturer. At OX-ON, we are certified and offer regular checks and inspections. 

An annual inspection includes checking for:

  • Lines and bands etc.
  • Functionality of locks
  • Adjusting devices
  • Carabiners
  • Fall Arrest Blocks
  • Fall arresters
  • Sliding locks

The inspection must take place no later than every 12 months. In some industries – for example, the chemical industry – more frequent inspections may be needed. Often the manufacturer has detailed instructions on checks/inspection that must be followed.
