Stay Safe: Schedule a Working at Heights Equipment Inspection

Falls are one of the most common causes of workplace deaths and injuries in Australia – especially falling from a height. That is why it’s so important to have high-quality installations and equipment to prevent such accidents and a robust system of assessments and inspections to ensure they are fit for purpose.

At Workplace Access & Safety, we provide efficient and cost-effective working at height risk assessments for any buildings and facilities that require workers and contractors to work at a height. Our assessments and inspections cover all installations and equipment, including roof anchors, static lines and personal protective equipment to ensure it meets the requirements of current Australian Standards and state-based legislation.

Inspecting Your Working at Heights Equipment

Ensuring that equipment used when working at heights is checked regularly is paramount. You don’t want to wait for an accident to tell you that it’s defective. This is why it’s important to have it regularly checked by a NATA accredited provider. You must ensure that your equipment is compliant at all times and should never put off an inspection of your safety at height equipment or installation.

At Workplace Access & Safety, we can clarify your existing equipment’s safety status, carry out testing to confirm its capability and review existing certification.

As an accredited NATA height safety laboratory, we can perform mechanical testing on a range of equipment including:

and ensure that it meets the needs of the legislation relevant to that equipment.

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.

roof anchor

Roof Anchor & Static Line Recertification

Anchor points and static lines need to be inspected at regular intervals. And if they are not in regular use, they must be inspected before each use. If anchors and static lines aren’t routinely inspected and maintained, they can fail. Fixings can loosen and rope fittings can dislodge. Workplace Access & Safety inspection, testing and certification services are independently accredited by the NATA so you now you can have confidence in the results.
