Rope Access PPE Inspection

Under the HSE, all employers have a duty of care to protect their employees from the risk of injury in the workplace. If your business requires that any of your personnel wear PPE, then you have a legal obligation to carry out a PPE Inspection:

If you are self-employed and are responsible for your own PPE inspection, for Caving Equipment, Ropes Access, Climbing-walls, Arborist, Work at height, or outdoor pursuits, anIRATAqualified technician, we can provide a kit inspection service for individuals also.

For many businesses, this is another thing to do and takes time and effort to organize. Our team of qualified PPE inspectors is fully insured and has the needed experience to give you peace of mind when it comes to your PPE requirements.

Working at Height

Our fully qualified independent assessors can inspect any specialist equipment to be used with fall protection/arrest systems. This range of highly specialized equipment includes lanyards, safety ropes, weight trolleys, full harnesses, carabiners, connectors, etc. All such equipment should be checked by the user before each use, but legislation dictates that it be inspected by an independent body every six months and certificated as safe to use or fit for purpose.

IRATA, LOLER HSE regulations advise that inspections should be made by an independent company to ensure unbiased decisions are made to ensure the integrity of the equipment being inspected.
