Is your height safety system legally compliant?

Australian Standards and state based legislation mandate the periodic inspection of fall prevention equipment. It is essential that your height safety system is approved and accredited, and that all roof anchors, static lines and personal protective equipment is in complete working order. Use this handy check list to see if your system is in need of an inspection.

The frequency of inspection and recertification varies from state to state, so we work with your business to set up action plans that help you maintain your registers, complete your inspections and ensure that your site remains compliant and safe for contractors and employees alike.

Read this article if you’re not sure how often you must have your static lines and anchors inspected.

With offices in Perth, Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, we offer cost effective consistency for organisations with multi-site operations irrespective of the location of your sites.

How often should I inspect my height safety equipment: NATA

Expert Oversight

Workplace Access & Safety’s inspection services are overseen by the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA). NATA are recognised by the Commonwealth of Australia as Australia’s national authority for the accreditation of laboratories and the peak body for the accreditation of inspection bodies and proficiency testing scheme providers.

Fall Prevention Equipment Compliance

There’s only one way to be sure your roof anchors, static lines and harnesses are ready to save a life. And, by law, roof anchors and static lines need to be tested and recertified every six to 12 months, depending on your state.

Your inspections and certification can deliver so much more than a tick-list. Workplace Access & Safety’s auditors photograph and catalogue the status of each system component to build an electronic database that makes compliance reporting effortless.
