AS/NZS1891.4 outlines the selection, safe use and maintenance of industrial fall arrest systems and devices (safety harnesses, horizontal lifelines, and rails, fall arrest devices and associated lanyards, connectors, anchorages, and fittings) designed for use in restraint technique, limited free fall and free-fall applications.
Maintenance covers the requirements and the recommendations for inspection, storage, servicing and cleaning of the equipment.
AS/NZS 1891 also requires that all personal use equipment (harness, lanyard, connectors, and fall arrest devices) and common use equipment (ropes, slings, fall arrest devices and mobile attachment devices) are also inspected by the user before and after each use.
The table below (used with permission under licence agreement) details the frequency of inspections. Anchor points, horizontal static lines, vertical lines and abseil points typically require inspection (and load testing if concrete fixed) every 12 months. Harness equipment requires inspection every 6 months and before/after each use.
Advanced Roof Safety auditors and inspectors are competent to inspect and certify the above systems in accordance with AS/NZS 1891.4.
To ensure reliable performance, anchor points must be regularly assessed by professionals for compliance.
