Ensure workplace compliance
Did you know service providers such as air con mechanics, plumbers etc. can refuse to perform maintenance if your system is non-compliant? While this could result in costly down-time, height safety compliance goes beyond business productivity. System and equipment certifications are essential to ensure your equipment is safe and complies with the latest safety standards and regulations. It also decreases workplace injury and liability risk by certifying your systems are in safe working order, keeping both your workers and company protected.
With over 45 years industry experience, our certification and inspection services provide a proactive approach to compliance. Working alongside our height safety experts, you can be confident your systems and equipment are compliant, reliable and safe.
Australian Standards and state-based legislation require that all safety-at-height equipment should be inspected regularly to ensure that it’s both safe and effective. A height safety inspection is necessary for any building where employees, contractors or other personnel have access to the roof. Not only is it essential that your height safety system is approved and accredited, but it must undergo regular maintenance and inspections to ensure that it remains safe. This includes all roof anchors, static lines and personal protective equipment. The frequency of inspection and recertification may vary depending on the state you are in.
Stay Safe and Compliant with Accredited Height Safety Inspections
At Workplace Access& Safety, we work with you to create a workable action plan that will enable you to maintain your registers and undertake the inspections required to ensure that your site remains compliant, and most importantly, safe for anyone who needs access to the roof.
Why Your Safety at Height Equipment Needs Inspecting
Even if your safety at height equipment was installed by specialists, annual or 6-monthly inspections are still a requisite. The safety of installations can be affected by several factors. For example, you may need to have more contractors on the roof for longer periods which may require modifications to your current system. Weathering or structural movement may have affected the integrity of the fixings and, just like all things, wear and tear may have affected the installation.
Cost-Effective Height Safety Certification
Whether you are the owner, occupier, management company or facilities management provider, if you have responsibility for a building where people need access to the roof, you must ensure that you schedule regular inspections.
