Risk Assessment & Inspection of Fall Protection Systems
Make sure your people; staff or contractors, are protected and your company’s liability is minimized with a Fall Prevention Risk Assessment & inspection of fall protection systems conducted by experienced ‘Height Access Specialists’ from Mr Rigger.
Building owners and managers are responsible for the compliance of their fall protection systems.
As an independent third-party, Mr Rigger can inspect, test and certify your anchor points and fall protection system equipment, providing you with either certification or report on any maintenance required.
On completion of the inspection, Mr Rigger will supply you with a report outlining:
- Serial number assigned for each anchor point, if one is not currently recorded,
- Test results for suspect anchors, or anchor points with no tags,
- Digital images of anchors,
- Certification tag details,
- Maintenance requirement details.
Fixed Line, Ladder & Anchor Point Inspecting, Testing & Tagging
It is law in South Australia that any anchor point used as part of a permanent fall prevention system “shall be inspected by a competent person at intervals not exceeding 12 months”, and “Adequate inspection records be kept” with an inspection “plate indicating the date of the last inspection…, placed near the anchorage”.
Anchorages and Supports
Static and dynamic strength tests of single-point anchor devices that need to meet the requirements of AS/NZS 1891 and AS/NZS 5532,
Guardrail and Perimeter Protection
Load tests on guardrail posts and guardrails for the purposes of determining compliance with The Building Code of Australia (2015), Australian Standards and OHS legislation,
Load tests on fixed ladders and stairways by methods outlined in AS 1657 Appendices D and F, including deflection and strength tests.
Inspection of anchor points falls into one of the following 3 categories:
- Inspection and or testing and re-certification of a properly installed and documented anchor,
- Inspection, testing and re-certification of a properly installed anchor that has not been regularly inspected and documented as required by law,
- Complete re-evaluation of an anchor with an unknown or questionable history.
What is Required to be Inspected & How Often?
Anchor point systems and fall arrest devices are required to be inspected tested and re-certified at least every 12 months (AS 1891.4).
Personal protection equipment including harnesses and lanyards require inspection every 6 months (AS 1891.4, Tbl 9).
