Height Safety Equipment Recertification

Under Health and Safety Legislation site managers and owners are legally required to have all fall safety equipment inspected and recertified regularly.

Recertification Responsibility

Work at Height Regulations are enforced anywhere work is carried out with a risk of fall which could cause injury or worse. A common misconception is that these regulations only apply on roofs, but this is not the case: these regulations extend beyond roofs and even to low level or underground work.

If these regulations apply to a site you manage or own, you have a legal obligation to ensure all height safety equipment is inspected and recertified at least annually.

At Steadfast, we offer a comprehensive equipment inspection and recertification service for both collective and personal protective solutions, guaranteeing safe equipment and peace of mind.

Why does my equipment need inspecting?

Regardless of the quality of the equipment or system itself, the fact of the matter is that these systems degrade with use, putting users at risk. Regular inspection is crucial for spotting these faults before they cause serious injury.

Recertification is also important so you have physical evidence that you met your obligations, and can show your dedication to safety should the worst happen. This is why inspection and recertification should be carried out by an external and independent third party, who can fully ensure the system’s safety and provide you with relevant documentation and certification.
