Further Information

When is fall protection required?

A worker must have fall protection if there is a falling hazard which could result in injury or death

How often are you required to inspect height safety equipment?

The requirements for the maintenance of height safety equipment are covered in the Australian and New Zealand Standard AS/NZS1891.4 2009 which requires that harnesses, lanyards, connectors and fall arrest devices, ropes, slings, and attachment devices be inspected by a competent person before and after each use.

The Standard also advises that detailed inspections should be conducted by a height safety inspector every six months for most items. But items that are used and stored under harsh conditions need to be inspected more frequently. All inspections except those by the operator are to be documented. Equipment should be inspected both visually and by physical examination and where possible the items should be opened and inspected to ensure that the internal components are also in good condition.
