Safe Access Equipment Recertification

Safe access equipment has to be annually recertified under the Safety, Health and Welfare Act at Work Regulation 2007 Part 4: Work at Height.

Need help with Inspection, Maintenance or Re-certification?

Regulation 199 States:

Work equipment exposed to conditions causing deterioration that is liable to result in danger must be inspected at regular intervals and also where any exceptional circumstances have occurred that are liable to jeopardise its safety. These inspections are important in ensuring that the equipment can continue to be used safely and that any deterioration is detected and remedied before it results in unacceptable risks.

 

A competent person should determine the nature, frequency and extent of any inspection, taking account of such factors as the type of equipment, how and where it is used and the likelihood of deterioration. Periods between inspections should be chosen on the basis of risk assessment and should be reviewed in the light of experience.

Does this apply to you?

The work-at-height Regulations apply to all work-at-height where there is a risk of a fall that could cause personal injury. They place duties on both employers and the self-employed.
