Periodical inspection, maintenance and repairs
EN365:2004 states that fall protection, support equipment and evacuation equipment must be subjected to periodic inspections, at least every twelfth month. If the equipment concerned is subjected to a lot of wear and tear it must be inspected more often.
The inspection must be carried out by a "competent person", who must have been certified by a manufacturer.
Additionally each user is responsible for checking their equipment prior to use - the so-called 'daily inspection'.
We carry out periodical inspections both in our service centre and on site with the customer. Many of our customers have a service contract with us, covering regular inspections and maintenance of the products.
Customers with a lot of equipment can take a course run by us, to become a certified "competent person".
We also recommend the use of our inspection database Inspector to register inspections simply and safely.
