Fall Protection Equipment (FPE) Inspection

Are you fulfilling your inspection responsibilities?

Use it or bin it?
 The Personal Protective Equipment Regulations 2002 require employers to maintain fall arrest equipment in good repair, including appropriate replacement. In addition, the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 require that equipment which is exposed to conditions causing significant deterioration should be inspected at suitable intervals and each time circumstances which might jeopardise safety have occurred.

FPE/PPE should be examined by the wearer to ensure general good working order. Technical examinations should be carried out by a trained inspector in accordance with manufactures instructions.

An annual inspection of FPE should be carried out by an appropriately qualified inspector in order to comply with European Standards.
