If you’ve got fall protection equipment it is imperative that the equipment be inspected each and every time you use it to make sure it isn’t damaged and that it will perform well if and when it needs to.
In order to make the process as painless as possible, as well as to have adequate record-keeping, having a checklist form is usually the best way to go.
I’ve put together the three following checklist forms that you can download and print out to walk you through this task:
- Full body harness inspection form
- Lanyard Inspection Form
- Self-Retracting Lifeline Inspection Form
You can view and download all three of these inspection forms on the fall protection section of our e-commerce website at http://www.nationalsafetyinc.com/9329/Fall-Protection.html (You see all three titles in red in the box at the top of the page, along with the other documents available there. By the way, “The Basics of Fall Protection” document has just been updated to reflect the new standard, so download that as well if you don’t have the latest updated version).
