Height Safety Certification

For height safety equipment to remain compliant, it must be inspected, tested and tagged regularly to ensure stability is maintained.

tredRITE Height Safety have a scheduled maintenance program that ensures regular inspection and compliance. We will deliver all documentation to you within 76 hours of completion of the Audit.

To comply with current Australian Standards [AS/NZS 1891.4.2009], certification is required for the following:

  • Fall arrest and fall restraint systems [this includes anchor points and static lines]: Inspection is required every 12 months.
  • Rope access systems: Inspection is required every 12 months.
  • PFPE [Personal Fall Protection Equipment]: This includes equipment such as harnesses, ropes, lanyards and slings. Inspection is required every 6 months.
  • Type 2 & 3 fall arrest devices: These devices are also known as inertia reels or SRL's [self-retracting lifelines]. These require testing every 3 months and servicing every 12 months.
  • Fixed ladders: Fixed ladders require inspection every 12 months.
  • Walkways & Guardrails: These require inspection and servicing every 5 years, however inspecting them annually for wear and tear in high traffic areas is highly recommended.

In addition to this, any equipment or systems that have been used to arrest a fall must be inspected and tested before use again.
