OSHA Regulations Require Fall Protection System Certification
Fall protection system certification goes hand in hand with our equipment inspection services. Certification is designed to comply with OSHA regulations and ANSI standards to protect your workers from injury and your company from liability claims. During this process we document each individual component of your systems by serial number, provide certificates of inspection and testing and provide proper signage to verify the equipment’s tested capabilities and operational limits. We also provide annual re-certification.
OSHA regulations, ANSI standards, manufacturers’ recommendations and common sense are all in agreement: Each and every component of a fall arrest system, including the user’s PPE, should be inspected by the user before each use, and by a competent person at least annually (more frequently if dictated by environmental conditions or other factors). The annual inspection is designed to ensure that a slow degradation of a component that may not be noticed by a daily user is found and addressed before it would cause a failure in the event it is called into action to save the life of a falling worker.
FallProof’s In-The-Cloud Historical Inspection Records Improve Efficiency
We RFID-tag everything we inspect and certify, and we securely store historical inspection records in the cloud. This allows our technicians in the field to quickly pull up a checklist, review notes and pictures from previous visits, document observations and comments for the next year, and issue a certificate that everything is in good working order and can be relied on for the next year. In the event we are not able to issue a certificate, we recommend the equipment be immediately removed from use, and provide an estimate of the cost to repair or replace the failing components. Our database also allows us to immediately provide a snapshot of the inspection status of a customer’s equipment, whether it is located in one building or spread among multiple facilities across the country.
